Silent Dance: Dance As An Alternative To Language

Workshop
Silent Dance: Dance As An Alternative To Language

The silence is always present, when we finish our sentences or when our reading eyes hit that blank part of the page just beneath the ending of a chapter in a book. It is present when we difference one word from another and especially when we want to emphasise something that cannot be said, those things impossibly expressed by words. The silence begins where the language finds its border. But just like in the silent films, the alternatives for language are endless. Every time two people dance, a silent dialogue is born.

In this open workshop Inez Piso will investigate the many ways of listening to the silence in the dance and see what alternatives dance can bring when silence falls on our lips.

Inez Piso is a curator residing between Amsterdam and Istanbul. She studied Art History and holds a MA in History of Contemporary Art and Visual Culture from the Universidad Autónoma Madrid. She worked at the exhibition departments of the MNCARS Reina Sofía and CA2M Dos de Mayo Art Center. She worked as an assistant curator for ARCOMadrid. Her recent curatorial projects have been Living with Ghosts at Schloss Ringenberg (DE), Breathing Space, a performative project at the Arnhem Museum (NL) and De Schaduw van de Haan at the Vishal (NL). Currently she works on a research project on the undiscerned silence in Istanbul.
