"“I want a dance where a body moves as part of its environment,” wrote Carolee Schneemann in 1970, “where the dancer says Yes to environment, incorporating it, or says No, transforming it.” The year 2020 has required both incorporation and transformation as each body on the planet has adapted to the regulations of a strange new environment. As the performance world tiptoes on the ever-slackening rope of the pandemic, artists and curators have been forced to rethink how we “do” performance: rejecting or reassessing certain prescribed modes and values; adopting and returning to others. While the enforced pause in production and hyperactivity came as a welcome reprieve for many, the subsequent drop in income and support for artists working across dance and performance has revealed an inherent flaw in how the art world functions. Video work and online encounters have become central conduits for the live experience. Within this, several artists have been interrogating the past to pose the question: Where do we go from here?"
