a fictional season

This November's IDOCDE Editorial, written by Sabina Holzer, takes you to the present-day Austria where the post-electoral political climate finds local free-artists wrestling a socio-policital system that threatens to become structurally ever-less supportive of the non-conforming, creative, and open-minded. Sabina's report paints a compelling picture of a world in which documenting becomes ever-more-crucial. "Document, document," as Pina Baush had said, "otherwise we are lost." Naturally, Pina had said "dance" in place of "document," but what if – what if dancing's only way to a sustainable future is by means of a strong document; the kind of document that will manage to create space and provide dancing with value in places in which dancing is still invisible, still a nuissance. In places such are governments around the world. I am not saying that dancing will ever stop being something that people do. I am saying that as it is now, dancing is running the risk of becoming something that people can't do, don't do, won't do – for a living.
