The overnight D.I.T. manual for nighttime assemblies

-on how to make big changes while sleeping
The idea for compiling the D.I.T. Overnight Manual derives from a quest that started in 2016 to explore the potential of collective sleeping and visioning. The D.I.T. Overnight Manual- or how to make big changes while sleeping- is a co-created do-it-together manual meant to inspire overnight activities and sleepovers that can envision the futures we want to inhabit. 


The festival is the first in-person meeting towards assembling the manual. Each artist contributes with an overnight-score, relating to themes such as #postcapitalism#assembly#dreamingpractices,  
#embodiment#contemporaryrituals.

LABORATORY & DIALOGUE

"The gentle body as an activist" at Kunsthall Charlottenborg in Copenhagen. kunsthalcharlottenborg.dk/ 

Inspired by our latest work “THE NIGHT- visioning a post-capitalist society while we sleep”  we invite into a short joint laboratory of 30 min relating to this aspect of the work, followed by a talk.

Part of the program CHOREOGRAPHY IN ACTION/ Dansehallerne / dansehallerne.dk

How would big politics look like, if it was shaped by the sensing body?

How to offer conditions, where the body is invited to inhabit complex and paradoxical questions and seemingly abstract topics such as economy, environmental or social issues?

How can the body be catalyst for producing thought and become a transformative resource, a form of activism?

OCTOBER 8 - 19:00
