In Getting our wonder smashed we explore dance and movement from the perspective of body politics, dark vitality, choreo disciplining (terms by André Lepeki). The idea of choreo discipline is that choreography was originally associated with a disciplined body. Choreopolitics, on the other hand, are connected with the attempt not to get rid of the body but to look for possibilities to “hatch” another one that is less subject to the disciplinary social order. Michel Foucault on the “disciplined body”: How power structures control your body, how it manifests itself on the somatic level. The movement research of future dance performance is based on inspiration from mythology and folklore about the invulnerability of the body. Choreopolitics, body politics, dark vitality and the ruins of capitalism as the presence of instability. Great myths about invulnerability are always stories about heroes who are vulnerable at one point.
