POST-DANCE, THE BOOK is out and should be read!  We would like to invite you to a book launch hang-out. Here you can get a free copy of the book!

About Post-Dance: Postdance was a conference in MDT in Stockholm 14-16 of October 2015 created by Danjel Andersson, André Lepecki and Gabriel Smeets with thinkers from the field, makers, writers, curators and more. This conference derived from the idea to talk about and think around the present tendencies in the fields of dance and choreography and its traditions. POSTDANCE was not an existing term or a concept we borrowed, it is rather a container. We wanted to keep this non-concept open source, we wanted to make a reversed conference and instead of saying what POSTDANCE is we would invite a wide range of thinkers to fill it with us. To let it be open, and a bit weird and by doing that keeping it urgent.

The three of us, all active at the conference Mette Edvardsen, Mårten Spångberg and Danjel Andersson have acted as a precarious editorial board. We invited more thinkers to fill the open container. Some of the texts and thoughts come directly from the conference and some are added thinkings.

POST-DANCE – THE BOOK. Supported by Cullbergbaletten and Life Long Burning a project funded with support from the European Commission.

P.S. This is the last Book Launch for now. We printed 2000 books and these are our last copies.
