Established in 2005, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution is an art organisation dedicated to exploring the evolution and typology of performance and performativity in contemporary art. We do this through the development, production, and presentation of commissioned projects with artists, curators, and researchers on the basis of long-term collaboration and support.
On a day-to-day basis we operate out of a production office in Amsterdam, using the flexibility it provides us to move and adapt, as each production requires. We present our projects through an ever-evolving network of partner institutions in the Netherlands and abroad, creating the conditions for each project to have a meaningful trajectory of presentations, and for diverse audiences to have access to these.
We aim to approach performance through an understanding of it as an inherently interdisciplinary form, and produce work that ranges from live performance to film to installations. Uniting our projects is a critical consideration of space, time, and the body (in all of its manifestations). Through our programme of commissions we aim to support practitioners at pivotal stages in their career, and to represent intergenerational, international, and intersectional positions.
