ADAM LINDER: FULL SERVICE

ADAM LINDER: FULL SERVICE


My name is Adam Linder and I have a show opening today at Mudam, called “Full Service”. It comprises of 5 choreographic works that are framed as services so the client, in this case Mudam, can hire the choreographies to be at work per hour or per day. The services propose to use choreography to transform or enact something. There is a contract that is undertaken with the client and that contract hangs on the wall of the gallery space. This states how long the service has been hired, for what price per day, and it goes into detail, in a way that any contract would, regarding the nature of the service that is provided. so I use this space of legalese language to provide a kind of artistic interpretation of how this service is offered. In a way, offering choreography as a service is an extension of the theatrical model. Performing artists have always been providing effective services. And so, when my work started to be invited to be shown in an art context, it seemed relevant for me to just find a way to extend the economy of the theater outside of the theater.
