This study investigates Erika Fischer-Lichte’s perspective of performance emerged in three works of Boris Charmatz’s Dancing Museum: Flip Book (2008), Expo Zero (2009), 20 Dancers for the XX Century (2012). From Fisher-Lichte’s principles of performativity, I identify the concepts of feedback loop, event, changing the role, and reproduction to discuss the characteristics of Charmatz’s choreography.
The three works presented new frames avoiding the proscenium stage, allowing to form a feedback loop with the audience in a museum. By presenting past performances to the present, representation occurs, activating continuous events and changing roles. The choreographer presented the movements, actions, and actions of the dancer as a performativity dance. At the same time, Charmatz attempted interaction with the audience, expanding the idea of choreography.
