I start working on the project “Transformability “ tasking my self to transform the philosophical text of Boyan Manchev “ TRANSFORMABILITY” 2006 in to a practical, performative script. Working on the original text I try to reformulate it, using the strategy of creating a musical script. I choose the musical form, because of the topic of the text – the performing society of “global capitalism” – society pretending to step beyond the conventional roles agencies.
I am asking also how an elitist text as such of “Transformability” can become a main element of creating a one of the more market orientated forms such a musical.
How theoretical text can be danced, using the concrete words of it? How can I make a practical bridge between dance and theory using the rules of the mainstream culture?
