Picture the ballroom dance of the future. Imagine this dance and its consequences are the result of an intense physical dialogue between dancers – an interaction of distinct group decisions in which all react to the impulses of the others and are forced to find answers in a split second. Now imagine this dance was a political practice.
Sylvie Tissot, Professor for Social Sciences at the Université Paris 8, presents her new book: Good Neighbours /De bons voisins (Raison d’agir, Publishing House, 2011.) She dedicates this study to the forms of coexistence in a city, which supposedly have the goal of social diversity. In the end the disparities don’t diminish but rather lead to new distinction strategies within the urban elite.
The dancers of Seven Thirty in Tights invite you to a dance workshop to continue dancing the ballroom dance of the future with them.
