Global Rite of Passage
Taking notes from Andre Lepecki’s talk.
Further thinking and analyzing our current challenges and pandemic through the lens of mobilization.
Experimental exercise of immanence - freedom
What kind of intimate knowledge the mover and dancer will have? And embodied knowledge of what it means to mobilize
How to imagine the current condition of mobilization and mobility in the pandemic?

Pause is a very aesthetic state. State of suspension and pause. State of pausing
I feel like in the pause - moving in the pause. The spectacle of displacement
Bustling spectacle. Activity and movement has been displaced.
The tangled dance between colonialism and... Question?
Capitalism-virtual-Being traceable, trackable.
The vertigo of images!
Subject-hood being shuttered by..”choreo-policing”

What are the consequences of the algorithm gaze on trauma during our current pandemic (our current virtual life)?
