Through choreographic systems and explorations on exercise, task and labour, Luis Garay dives into environments that could challenge ideas of productivity, time and presence. He often works with ecstatic bodies, obsessed with GIFS, machines and mechanisms. Nowadays, he gravitates towards ideas of shared imagination and the inhuman: passivity and receptivity as no-power. He is interested in habit and repetition, iteration and alienation. He recently presented his work at ARCOmadrid, Walker Art Center, Malta Festival Poznań, Centre Pompidou Metz, Montpellier Danse, ROHM Theatre Kyoto, GAM, Panorama Festival Brazil, among others. In Buenos
Aires he runs the San Martin Theatre Laboratory of Action, an experimental studies program for performative creators. He is currently completing a Master of performance studies at the University of Giessen in Germany.
“Relationships among embodied behaviors, between agency and automatism, artificial and natural, between not doing and doing, mechanisms of the flesh and the space-time. Between theory and practice. Relationships of lack: towards what is not there. Understanding the world as relational requires radical actualizations and trust. We will compose a landscape of relations which will be open to visitors on the last day of the workshop. We will also discuss texts by Leo Bersani and Sara Ahmed among others.” Luis Garay
