The Theoros Project is a research frame situated at the intersection between philosophy and art, dilettantism and professionalism, and it is dedicated to investigate on the notions of body and event and to create contexts for learning and practicing theory. In this light, the artistic practice becomes a way of practicing philosophy. The workshops are facilitated frames for a temporary collective body to engage in the process of dancing and choreographing a series of practical problems using the methodology of cyclic interval oscillation, a practice that seeks to keep open the relation to alterity.
Diego Agulló is an independent researcher and a dilettante artist intervening mainly in the field of contemporary dance and performance investigating the affinity between Body and Event.
Between 1998 and 2004, he studied philosophy and he practiced painting, video art and music improvisation. In 2005 he decided to quit his academic trajectory and without any plan, he moved to Berlin. From then on, he works internationally and his work covers different media such as dance, performance, essay writing, publishing books, video art, laboratories for research, the organization of participatory events as well as the creation of contexts to continue practicing and investigating the relation between the body and the event.
He is the editor of the Circadian press where he has published Dangerous Dances (2015) in which he analyzes the intimate affinity between dance, the problem, the devil and ballistics, and Betraying Ambition(2017) where he displays a critique to the ideological implications of ambition in the art world. Diego teaches workshops and laboratories internationally and in Berlin he collaborates regularly in educational contexts such as the HZT University, Smash / Roar platform and Affect at Agora collective. During 2016 and 2017 he carried out an interview project under the name Measuring the Temperature of Dance analyzing the ethical and political conditions of the dance context in Berlin. He is also co-founder of Pinpoint Tv, an online platform for the dissemination and investigation of contemporary dance.
Diego´s frame of research is called Theoros , and it is dedicated to create contexts for learning and investigating the affinity between Event, Body and Theory in the frame of an artistic practice. It deals with the intersection between education and art, dilettantism and professionalism. In this light, the artistic practice becomes a way of practicing philosophy. The workshops are facilitated frames for a temporary collective body to engage in the process of dancing and choreographing a series of practical problems using the methodology of cyclic interval oscillation, a practice that seeks to keep open the relation to alterity.
