InDilemma: a dance-science performance – European Forum Alpbach 2017
The Centre for Systems Solutions had a chance not only to contribute to the opening act of the Alpbach Political Symposium, but also to take part in creating the emotionally moving final act of the conference. Piotr Magnuszewski participated in the InDilemma project led by Gloria Benedikt from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.
The InDilemma final act was a mix of beautifully choreographed dance performance and a game, in which it was the audience who decided how to shape the reality of the dancers’ world. While presenting the main ideas behind the Game’s Theory, InDilemma performance touched on inequalities, shrinking resources and living space, leaving the audience with much to reflect on.
InDilemma was part of the closing plenary session “Transformative pathways to sustainability: from perception to changing behavior” of the Alpbach Political Symposium.
The Alpbach Political Symposium is dedicated to the today’s world central challenges and to presenting innovative ideas for politics and policy-making in the 21st century. Every year, more than 20 partner organizations from Austria, Europe, and the USA contribute their expertise and knowledge to the event.
