Failure as Practice



Performances ‘Failure as Practice’ are a result of a week-long Workshop led by Darko Dragičević in collaboration with the members of City Guerilla.  In the frame of the Workshop ‘Failure as Practice’ participants contemplated on general understanding of failure in given social contexts questioning normative ethics of social behavior through use of language, movement, inter-relations and collective memory. Set of analytical and practice based tasks were reflected upon the production of knowledge in relation to self and other bodies in public space.  Final showing in the format of performance/s and lecture performance/s present various try-outs using text, sound and movement based scores.  Memory and repetition served as articulable elements to demonstrate the transformative powers of fear of failing into creative processes of individual and collective trust.
