This presentation looks at questions of curatorial strategy in relation to performance and dance histories, and their re-activation and alteration through contemporary works. It focuses on what might be at stake, in temporal, experiential and mnemonic terms with new works and exhibitions that take fluid, processual and transformative approaches to the display of performance histories in the present. In particular it examines Moments: A History of Performance in 10 Acts (ZKM, 2012) both in terms of the revival of its constituent works and its curatorial sensibility. What is being re-performed and re-moved here, and what might such animations have to do with the survival and transmission of some of the more ineffable qualities of performance?
