Abstract

During the 2007 OSVD conference at Findhorn, Scotland a working group formulated a manifesto on screendance with the proposition that “through an accretion of images of bodies in motion, a larger truth may unfold’. Written a year later this paper revisits the manifesto and discusses its propositions in the light of André Lepecki’s recent publication Exhausting Dance. In accordance with Lepecki the paper draws on Sloterdijk’s notion of a kinetic excess of modernity and argues that current screendance practice colludes with a modernist agenda in its production of ongoing spectacles of movement. Rather than unfolding any truths these ongoing flows of bodies in motion perform imagined idealist subjects.
