Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft takes the Tanzplattform 2014 as an occasion to examine local discussion cultures on performances and to test practices and methods of reflecting and remembering together with the guests of the platform. In this format based on the exchange of experiences and knowledge, the guests themselves are the archive: How and from which perspective do they exchange thoughts on what they have seen? And with what response are their opinions met? The ARCHIVE OF PERFORMANCES focuses on the use and dissemination of performances beyond the methods of viewing, storing and classifying that determine the market. It raises questions as to the political implications of an international fair for specialists and the general public, and is interested in the sensitivities and economies of the views coming together. The archivists are at all times available for further information, the issue of headphones and registration to the feedback talks.

The Archive of Performances has invited the international Performing-Arts-Master- Programme DasArts from Amsterdam to present their highly acclaimed FEEDBACK method at the Tanzplattform. In their introduction, Barbara van Lindt and Manolis Tsipos will present the tools and techniques developed by DasArts, which ensure differentiated feedback and facilitate a productive exchange on artistic works. With this keynote, Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft opens the Archive of Performances and presents further items on the programme.

Headphones are available for the guests of the platform to retrace and spend twenty minutes of time with the viewed performances on their own in a quiet location.
