The Greek word for body appears in Homer only to refer to the corpse. It is this corpse, therefore, or rather, it is the corpse and the mirror that teach us (who have, that is, taught the Greeks and now the children) that we have a body […]. M. Foucault

HOW TO SURVIVE IN THE CASE OF PERMANENT DAMAGE is a choreographic X-ray. A report that reveals a non-utopian body, the functioning of an imperfect machine, the gears of a corruptible organism. It is an exploration of a textual and sonic archive, linked to injuries and debilitations, that investigates the theme of physical and emotional pain post-trauma. In an aseptic “operating” room and over sounds stemming from the reversal of The Dying Swan, a movement sequence and the body of a dancer are vivisected.
What lies hidden within a “performing” body?
Does it make sense to survive?
To what extent?
At what cost?
