Transformability looks for the interface between philosophy and dance and finds it in the essay of the same name by Boyan Manchev, in which the performance becomes an allegory of our society’s obligation to perform, but at the same time constitutes one of the only places in which we can leave our rehearsed roles behind us. The complex analysis becomes a musical script in Willy Prager’s lecture, the critic a product of the market it criticises. He displaces the lightness of being with words as they displace movement. And yet is everything really so light and unproblematic – or do the performers actually dance for their own freedom?
