Là / dans la convergence / des erreurs commises pour l’avenir is a political and poetic exploration of time. Coming from a discomfort towards what we conceive as ‘the future’ and its underlying linear conception of a (re)productive future, this proposition delves into repetition, anachrony and failure — if it occurs. The collective invites members of the audience to share a space which hides and reveals the actions taking place within it, creating a multiplicity of spatio-temporalities that refuse and duplicate themselves.
This spontaneous collective is composed of participants from the fields of visual arts, dance, drag, theatre, political science and gender studies. Interested in decompartmentalizing these artistic disciplines and sharing their complementary knowledge, they work in a horizontal collaboration where the notions of “onstage” and “offstage” overlap. là / dans la convergence / des erreurs commises pour l’avenir (2019) is the culmination of a series of workshops and seminars that took place over the last six months.
