»There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.«
– Dale Carnegie, US-American author and communication and motivation coach.

But is that really everything? How do we deal with the gaps, detours and breaches that at first glance don’t seem to fit in with our representation of ourselves, but actually do have influence over how we negotiate and communicate with the world? With a view to the history of curriculum vitae, this workshop is conducted in an open, collaborative format that invites the participants to approach their own CVs as well as the CVs of others as artistic material. The workshop looks especially closely at the gaps, detours and cracks that at first glance don’t seem to fit in with our representations of ourselves. Based on experimental explorations of written, spoken and audio-visual media, the participants will gradually design choreographic scores, dances or performative lectures in which they will design, develop and retell real, fictional, future, individual, collective and hybrid biographies.

Martin Sonderkamp, is an artist based in Berlin and Stockholm. He is currently a professor at Stockholm University of the Arts /Doch – School for Dance and Circus. His choreographic work transcends disciplinary and aesthetic boundaries between dance, visual art and music, and features forms of participatory choreography, mixed media installations and scores for extemporary performances.
