Before the name is an investigation into Alain Badiou’s theory on the relationship between dance and thought, as considered in ‘Dance as a Metaphor for Thought’, (Dance as a Metaphor for Thought), part of the Petit manuel d’inesthétique written by the French philosopher in 1998 – (Handbook of Inaesthetics, A.Toscano trans., Stanford University Press., 2005). Banchelli organises a system of flux in a continuous crescendo, interlaced by the intense crossovers between dance and thought, thus creating a minimal multi-layered connection between the artists, thinkers and public. Via the intensity of the movement, the sound and the words, the happening questions the meaning of an ‘event’, where the participants’ connections generate a sequence of contingencies.
