This is the Rhythm of the Night
Lecture Performance

This lecture is about how a body moves while one is dancing, what sensations are generated during this event through bodily movements and how these movements lead to zones of inflicted autonomy. Taking this as its premise, the lecture describes various conditions that occur within this temporal frame and how the body and communality become vectors - a Temporary Autonomous Zone that operates within the frame of the night.

The lecture takes two digressions in order to illustrate vectors of movements that may not rest within the body but are rooted in the body - taking instances from Islamic theology and physical cosmology. The lecture also has components of electronic music-techno, jungle, amongst others, which provide an mise-en-scene to this thought.
