Abstract [en]

From Klauss to Katherine(s) is a performative reading installation made by the dance artist Thiago Granato in correspondence with seven other choreographers. It is part of his Choreoversations project. It consists of an archival re-enactment of an exchange of fictional letters between dead choreographers, animated by living ones. How can fiction guide us in dealing with the presence of those who are no longer among us?

 

This practice explores different ways of creating a performative contract through an imaginary link formed between the writer's body, the body of the letter, and the body of the one who reads it. In this context, fiction is used as a way to organize alternative realities. 

This fictional exchange allows a temporary identification that brings into communication imaginary situations, historical information, facts and speculations across different times and places. It supports the possibility that history coexists with fiction in an entanglement of real and imagined lived experiences. The letters perform a transmission of memories and affects passed through bodies in the act of writing and reading. 

In this installation, Thiago is present alongside the fictional letters and archival material. The letters take on the agency of performance, while Thiago becomes a living document of the creative process.
