BAK is pleased  to invite you to Unrestricted Sociality, a dance party and performative intervention with artist, performer, and educator Joy Mariama Smith.

Departing from Mariama Smith’s investigation into the interplay between the body and its cultural, social, and physical environment, this study session in the shape of a dance party aims to be a proposition for decentralized academic/institutional knowledge building, fostering reflections on how the space is dealt with when the distinction between spectator and participant becomes blurred. How can we practice unrestricted sociality on the dance floor? What are we learning when we socialize? How can knowledge—not just intellectual knowledge, but also somatic, emotional, and intuitive knowledge—be shared in an informal social setting?

The event is the culmination of the training Mad About Study by Joy Mariama Smith, taking place from 2–6 October 2019 as part of Trainings for the Not-Yet (14 September 2019–12 January 2020).

Joy Mariama Smith is a performance, installation, and movement artist and educator. They teach at the Academy of Theatre and Dance, Amsterdam University of the Arts, Amsterdam. Mariama Smith is a BAK 2019/2020 Fellow.

Tickets:
€6 normal/€3 student discount. Including entry to exhibition Trainings for the Not-Yet on Saturday 5 October. Book your ticket via Eventbrite
This event is free to attend for participants to the training with Mariama Smith, Mad About Study.
