Something Raw Festival (Amsterdam, 2016)

Drawing on her latest works, One Small Step for a Man: Hello, Goodbye (2015) and Earth in 100 Years (2016), in this performance lecture Danae Theodoridou reflects on her artistic research on the notion of ’social imaginaries’. Central to the lecture are the views of the philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis on the imaginary qualities of our everyday life as well as those of the human geographer Pepe Romanillos on Earth’s ’view from above’. By addressing our inability to dream in today’s neoliberal context, as this has been discussed by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby in their Speculative Everything, the attempt is to open space for reimagining our possible presents and futures together.

Danae Theodoridou is a performance maker and researcher based in Brussels. She studied literature and linguistics in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and acting in the National Theatre of Northern Greece. She completed her practice-led PhD at Roehampton University in London. The last three years, her artistic work focuses on the notion of social imaginaries and the way art can contribute to the emergence of social and political alternatives. In this frame, she created One Small Step for a Man: Hello, Goodbye (2015), Earth in 100 Years (2016) and Something Dreamy (2016). In 2017 she develops this research further with the support of the Flemish community in Belgium. At the same time, Danae teaches in various university departments and art conservatoires of theatre and dance in Europe, curates practice-led research projects and presents and publishes her research work internationally. She was the co-creator of the project Dramaturgy at Work (2013-2016) and the co-author of The Practice of Dramaturgy: Working on Actions in Performance (Valiz, 2017).
