DIS_Lecture is a series of lecture performances by artists with learning disabilities from Novi Sad, Warsaw, and Hamburg. In the frame of zoom webinars, Dalibor Šandor, Natalija Vladisavljević, Dennis Seidel, Maja Kowalczyk and Aleksandra Skotarek will share their artistic practices which they develop in the field of contemporary performing arts. These artists are invited to appropriate the format of the lecture performance and challenge its ableism.
They will reflect on dance, disability, text and body politics, as well as on the states of exclusion, isolation and resistance. Together with their long-term collaborators, they enter a sector from which they are historically excluded: the field of theory and discourse on dance and performance.
DIS_Lecture is created by Saša Asentić as an accessible format that contributes to the critical culture and solidarity in dance. Its aim is to create conditions for disability dance and performance artists to come together and share their work in public.
