P0$$€ – dance and reading group is a gathering for people wanting to spend time dancing and reading together.

It is an open-ended study circle for practitioners within contemporary dance and other curious ones. You meet up in different constellations to practice reading and dancing together and investigate what this could mean. Each session is hosted by one or several practitioners who propose the materials: text to read, a way to read the text, and dances. The text can be artistic, essayistic, philosophical, articles, lyrics, poetry, manifestos, scores, or anything else. The methods can vary from reading in a circle one by one to braiding hair to intimate readings, to speaking through robotic voices, for example. The dances can vary in style: contemporary, modern, reggaeton, bodywork, formalism, expressive dance, dance-rituals, scores, meditations, writing, questioning, healing, dreaming, for example. P0$$€ is engaged with critical practices and with generating discourse through doing. P0$$€ is an institutional parasite, an autonomous entity, based on the idea that nothing is connected to everything, everything is connected to something (Haraway). The host of P0$$€ changes from session to session, just like its participants. The content of the P0$$€ is responsive to the participants’ proposals or ideas. P0$$€ is whoever is there.
