Precarius Mobilizatioins: A Crip Choreographers Perspective On Settling / Unsettling/ Resettling


HTA Ringvorlesung

How can we engage in a broader choreographic practice of inventing new forms of movement organization?

Crip choreographer Michael Turinsky talks about his concept of precarious mobilization as part of the HTA lecture series “(Un)settled. Performance, Protection, and Politics of Insecurity”. With this specific kind of mobilization, Turinsky defines the relationship between the body and its environment as a constant process of becoming settled, unsettled and resettled. Turinsky employs the term “crip” in the spirit of Robert McRuer as the disabled body’s resistance to “compulsory able-bodiness”. In doing so, Turinsky uses his own choreographic position as one of engaging that disabled body’s inherent resistance in processes of de-organizing and re-organizing hegemonic forms of movement and of organization.
