To the Aching Parts! (Manifesto) is a public speech which dissects the language used by and against queer communities today. Devoid of grammar, the text is subjected to the order and pleasure of rhythm. It relies on historic references to militancy by minorities to address the dangers of normativity and the need for embodied intersectionality when forming queer alliances today. By taking liberty to play around with the language of resentment and trauma, as well as, empathy and healing, it proposes to destabilise identities, practices and well-known acronyms like LGB or FtM for the sake of a queer future we have yet to envisage.
Ania Nowak’s choreographic practice approaches vulnerability and desire as ways towards reimagining what bodies and language can do. She develops formats such as live and video performance, performative exhibition and text. Nowak’s overall inquiry is into the political dimension of body material and its immaterial aspects – affects, feelings and intuition – to think of new, embodied practices of care and companionship.
