Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides a historical context for reenactment in contemporary dance in experiments in the 1980s with the reconstruction and reinvention of dance modernism and baroque dance, as well as offshoots of the baroque. It posits the importance of the artist’s dual emplacement in multiple senses: between past and present, between intellectual and artistic production, between memory and forgetting. Through an analysis of Martin Nachbar’s reenactment of the solo cycle Affectos Humanos by Dore Hoyer, it then proceeds to elaborate a poetics of the archive and the notion of choreography itself as an “order of places” necessary to memory itself.

Keywords: archive, choreography, baroque, modernism, Martin Nachbar, Dore Hoyer, Jacques Derrida, Michel de Certeau, heterotemporality, Affectos Humanos
