CRIP_sessions (Critical Research In Procress) are a series of five interventions organized by c.off during spring 2018, in collaboration with DOCH, the School of Dance and Circus and ABF Stockholm. CRIP_sessions depart from and work further with c.off’s publications KROPPSFUNKTION – en antologi [CHOREOABILITIES – an anthology] (2015) and IMPERFEKTA (2017), which meets and investigates notions of ability, movement and language. In each session a specific, but intertwined theme is approached. In turn, we devote ourselves to a critical search for in-between places, in which notions of (dis)abilities and alikeness posed by the norm are investigated, discussed and re-considered.

NB: The primary language for all sessions is Swedish if nothing else is announced.

CRIP_sessions is a part of the project Kroppsfunktion, which is run by c.off with support from Arvsfonden. The project recognizes and employs intellectual and cognitive so called “disabilities” as specific and highly developed abilities. The sessions are also a part of the free standing course “Variationer i funktioner och koreografi” [Variations in functions and choreography], offered at DOCH.
