Read and Dance with Us
In the frame of Open Futures, The Field is organizing Textual Fantasy on Saturday November 21th. We will begin by reading together and afterwards experience a movement practice - both are led by the hosting guest(s). Textual Fantasy is a way to meet different texts, meet each other, and to find ways of physically digesting information. It will be cozy and informal, there will be tea and snacks. Bring your friends!
The hosting guests for this first edition are Juan Ferrari and Esther Meunier Corfdyr . Their proposed text is Undrowned by Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

Bühne 2, Tanzhaus Zürich (Wheelchair accessible)
Juan Ferrari (he / they / no pronouns): Uruguayan digital artist, nomad, queer, working in between disciplines (theater, performance, art, design, game design). Artist of displacement, he construct his identity from movement. Deterritorialisation is the first motivation of their artistic practice and identity, intimately linking their work and personal history. From the inside out, in a perpetually moving flow of transformation that intends to glitch and escape hegemonic structures in which existence is survival.
Esther Meunier Corfdyr (she / her): Movement artist, Stage Director and Dramaturg, Esther Meunier Cordyfr works mostly in theater, dance and performance. Formally trained as a ballet dancer with a Master in Performing Arts Studies, Esther continued her formation as a dancer in Germany and eventually studied hypnotical methodology for creation with Catherine Contour. Her interest in questioning states of presence and consciousness is what drives her academic and artistic research about hypnosis and sleep. Besides different artistic and interdisciplinary collaborations and her work as a director for the company Les Libres Etendues, Esther works also as a pedagogue with non-dancers in schools, universities, social centres and prisons.
