How are artists’ personal archival practices and the institutional archive of an artist’s work related? How can archiving and activating dance and performance history be practiced in parallel by different generations, narratives and cultural contexts? What alternative forms of selection and continuity emerge when we deal with dance legacies? In a lecture performance, Euripides Laskaridis reflects on his own artistic and archival practice as a performer. The dancer and choreographer Alexandre Achour and the head of the Pina Bausch Foundation archives Ismaël Dia talk about institutional dance archives and their exclusions.
