P0$$€ - dance and reading group is a gathering for people wanting to spend time dancing and reading together. Each P0SSE is hosted by a practitioner from the field of dance - performance - philosophy.

The content of the POSSE is responsive to the participants’ proposals or ideas. POSSE is whoever is there.

Duration will be more or less 2h00 hours depending on each occasion.
Come whenever you want! (It's best if you arrive at the beginning).

P0$$€ was initiated in Stockholm by Lisen Pousette, Chloe Chignell, Tamara Alegre and Klara Utke Acs (Ellen Söderhult as coach for a while) and was joined by Alice MacKenzie and Austeja Vilkaityte. In Copenhagen, it is initiated and run by Lydia Östberg Diakité, Casper-Malte Augusta and Camilla Lind, Snorre Jeppe Hansen and Olivia Riviere.

It is initiated in Melbourne by Alice Heyward, Rebecca Jensen and Sarah Aiken - TBC by the POSSE!

In the spirit of reading and dancing together, we encourage that no preparation or prior reading is expected from the partakers who come to P0$$€ sessions. We try to document the P0$$€ sessions each time (however not strictly) according to what is proposed. Could be through video, photos, sound recordings, text - with consent from the part-takers. The documentation is uploaded in this private facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/292367521386865/

In this way, we slowly generate an archive of texts and documentation.

Po$$€ MELBOURNE feat. Alice Heyward & Megan Payne

'On touching – the inhuman that therefore I am' by Karen Barad
We will read it lying on the floor in touch with one another
***no need for prior reading! We will read together!

We will dance a score we devised and named 'Mattering'. It involves listening and responding, leading and following simultaneously and with your whole body, through continuous loops of movement. We will do this dance as a kind of jam.
