For the next six weeks we, Lisen Pousette, Chloe Chignell and Klara Utke Acs of POSSE dance and reading group, will take over the END FEST-blog. This takes place in relation to the upcoming P0$$€ €PIS0D€ “ELEMENTS” on 17th February.
Together with Tamara Alegre, and our supportive coach Ellen Söderhult, we initiated POSSE in February 2017 (anniversary soon!) at DOCH.
POSSE is a weekly gathering in Stockholm for reading and dancing. Each time is hosted by a practitioner from the field of dance, performance and choreography that proposes materials for reading and dancing and ways of dealing with them together.
END FEST invited Tamara to bring a fest to life and she decided to do an offspring of the POSSE format: P0$$€ €PIS0D€ “ELEMENTS”. If END FEST and POSSE would have a love child, this would be it.
We like to think of the knowledge of POSSE as a network: as soon as you part-take in a POSSE you will hold a part of this knowledge web. But not one person, nor any of us, has a full understanding of all that has been shared in POSSE. “Nothing is connected to everything; everything is connected to something” as stated by Donna Haraway.
In the spirit of POSSE we will be propose texts and other materials that are close to our hearts, by artists and writers that we know in person and some that we don’t. The blog will work as an extension of the discourse that is continuously generated through POSSE. It will be done with devotion to what we do and most importantly with curiosity.
