6 Months 1 Location (6M1L) Mette Ingvartsen
This book reads as a document of various activities and practices that took place within the project 6 MONTHS 1 LOCATION from July to December 2008 in the Choreographic Center in Montpellier, and from May to June 2009 in performingARTSforum, St. Erme.
In 6M1L seventeen artists – Sasa Asentic, Younes Atbane, Eleanor Bauer, Kelly Bond, Bojana Cvejic, Jefta van Dinther, Juan Dominguez, Luís Miguel Felix, Thiago Granato, Mette Ingvartsen, Gérald Kurdian, Xavier Le Roy, Inez Carrasco Lopez, Neto Machado, Chrysa Parkinson, Nicholas Quinn and Eszter Salamon – explored what it means to work under ‘special conditions’ of research and education, different from the usual freelance independent production. The constraints were that the work take place in one location, in the duration of six months and involving every participant in the role of leading one project and collaborating in one or more other projects.
The contributions of all participants attempt to describe and share questions, concepts and fantasies developed in 6M1L : meeting, changing, singing, veering, note-taking, imagining, speculating, sensing, listening…
What happens when we stop hopping from one project to another on the freemarket and stay in one place to win time for what ? Infinite intensity !
