Alternatives sorcières

Latifa Laâbissi & Anna Colin

In recent years, the idea of witchcraft has seen a revival, mainly within the activist circles of artists, feminists, queers, and ecologists who – as a reaction to the continuous oppression of the Human rights – strive for more social justice and a less individualistic order of existence. This makes witchcraft today a metaphor for militant otherness, an alternative way of living, learning and apprehending the world. In this 6-day workshop, choreographer Latifa Laâbissi and curator Anna Colin will propose a physical and theoretical exploration of the contemporary figure of the witch. Diving into the witchcraft’s imaginary and archives – texts, fictions, reconstitutions, body practices, philosophical and anthropological reflections – Alternatives sorcières seeks to be a moment of transmission of rational and irrational forms of knowledge. The workshop will bring together a group of 15 participants and end with a public presentation open to all.


For whom? Artists, activists, art & anthropology students, anyone who is interested in the contemporary figure of the witch. No experience required, but a real curiosity and work autonomy are welcome.
