Defying the Panchoreographic: Post-anatomical Bodies as Resistance in Capitalism of Affects
I will propose a revision of power in latecapitalism as contagious distribution of choreographies that give form to the affects of the bodies on a global scale, through a set of technologies that I will call the panchoreographic: interfaces (mouse, keyboard, joystick, screen, camera...), images (musical videos, pornography, cinema, Tv...), ubiquitous commercial music, architectures (disco, city...) and other. Whereby choreographic analysis becomes central to a study of power operations that seeks to go beyond performativity, semiotics, queer, postcolonial and posthuman critique, in its understanding of the production of affect and desire in current biopolitics.
Furthermore I will propose the possibility to set to motion postchoreographic and postanatomical bodies of relational movement that defy categories of species, sex and ability, through subversive reappropriations of technologies of control, as in the “Microdances” technique, where surveillance cameras are placed on the naked body as an interface. Examples of performances, metaformances and urban interventions of the Pangender Cyborg, by REVERSO-Jaime del Val will be presented.
