Choreography in the classroom, 2022

In the XVII century, someone decided to start writing dances on paper to be able to pass them on to other people. From body to paper, from paper to body. Choreography in the classroom” is a work that establishes a relationship between three language systems: the written, the oral and the sign. The performance turns into a game of recognition and estrangement through sound, drawing and gesture. If the word “choreography” implies the writing of dance, here, writing, speaking and signing literally become dancing through the poetics of language. As if “dancing” a language and “speaking” a dance.
