Four remarks on the history of dance
Endangered Human Vol.1

The performance 'Four remarks on the history of dance' is the first volume of Endangered Human Movements, focusing on human movement practices, which have been cultivated for centuries all over the world.
The First Volume of this long-term research deals with dances that were not conceived to create a spectacle for a select audience, but were practiced in commonality, articulating reciprocal relations with the environment, other life forms, and the unknown.
The Four Remarks are meant to be artistic and discursive contributions for the expansion of a narrative that has been historically ethnocentric.
The performance presents a plurality of dance forms from all five continents, – dedicated to the harvest, the soil, the rain, the fire or the wind – and brings them on stage as ready-mades, exploring the political and environmental potential of movement, in times of advancing privatisation and depletion of natural ressources.
