Bifo, contemporary dance, and politics

by Arran James

Excerpt from an interview between Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi and a dance group who ran for the Canadian Presidency.

We are a group and we mainly come from performance/contemporary dance. At some point we couldn’t avoid anymore to raise a fundamental question for our art. What is the point to do our performances in the theatre, what is the point to add another spectacle in this society of generalized spectacle? Based on this question we started what we call postspectacle practice, with the intention to go with our skills and knowledge as performers and makers on the main stages – mass media and politics.
