“space | place”
! WELCOME TO THE SECOND ISSUE OF ANYBODY ZINE !
! we did it again !
*high-fiving a thousand angels*
so here we are.
here you are.
here is this zine
occupying this space
in your hands, on your screen, in front of your eyes.
Whilst writing this editorial, we had a long discussion about the various exciting and bewildering philosophies behind the concepts of space and place. Kopano even had to pour himself another glass of wine! Julia pointed out that Laban pointed out that space acts on the body before it starts moving. But what does that even fucking mean?
We thought maybe place is a physical location.
And space is an area between two things.
We thought maybe space is the framework that our ]bodies[ exist in.
We are constructing and reconstructing this framework all the time.
We thought that maybe to have a body is to negotiate the space between places.
Being a human in the world requires us to negotiate mental, conceptual, [unphysical] spaces with our physical body in very real and immediate places.
at the end of the day
wherever you’re moving
wherever you’re dancing
wherever you take your body
it has to be somewhere
this issue is interested in that somewhere
also – our next issue is coming up. it is going to be about rhythm.
so write your thing, make your thing, do your thing
and send it to us!
