One Philosopher | One Text | One Stage + Three Manoeuvres

The performance series ON THE BLIND SPOT started in May 2013 with a text by French philosopher Alain Brossat. A philosopher writes a text for the stage. In three exercises, spread out over a long period of time, the ensemble approaches the text, orbits around it and creates three productions. This approach is rooted in the desire to keep the process open, in acquiring the text anew and converging it time and again. The performance is not the final result. When we re-think and re-rehearse the text over the term of a year, we assert the text’s practical value for our experiences and insights. Beyond academic confinement and compulsive utilisation, we are trying to use the performative space to make philosophical concepts/drafts productive for public thinking. In this context we understand our productions/performances as open, inconclusive exercises (Manoeuvres)

As of yet, ON THE BLIND SPOT authors have been Alain Brossat (PLEBS INVICTA), Maurizio Lazzarato (The Making of the Indebted Man), and Giovanni Leghissa (Verfirmung der Gesellschaft/Incorporating Society). The series will continue in 2016 with its fourth edition called Pandora's Daughters in collaboration with philosopher Boyan Manchev [archive series 1-3 See below]
