"Delirious anatomy” is a collection of feverish studies dedicated to a body part.
It is a work based on the study of anatomy—on its history and on the perspective of Chinese medicine, physiology and palaeontology—, on iconographic or literary crossings, as well as on empirical experience. Delirium appears so as to destabilise and rename the parts. It is caused by rubbing facts and fiction, by attacking the organs and the tasks they were assigned. The goal is to trigger crises and revolutions that may allow for more freedom when creating the body, and thus to redesign its shapes, gestures and functions in order to broaden its way of being and existing. The first choice is to isolate a body part and cold-heartedly place it in an empty studio. The studies focus on the orifice—the orifice as a passing place, since the transit between the inside and the outside generates delirium. To be delirious is to lose it. Given that anatomy is the discipline that names the constituent parts of the body, "Delirious anatomy” also explores the symmetry between the writing process and the choreographic process, between word and gesture. • Ana Rita Teodoro
