Martin Nachbar and Jochen Roller are performing ‘On the Road with mnemonic nonstop’ in front of an academic audience. Yet are the two presenters, introduced as dancers and choreographers, actually presenting themselves as artists? Their set-up is deceptively similar to the one found in countless lecture theatres: a space with a lectern (a little too small to be called a proper stage), microphones, an overhead projector, a white screen behind them. Ordinary clothes. No make-up, no curtain. Yet their posture, tone of voice, manner of movement, and the ways in which they illustrate their discourse with minimal technical equipment testify to the fact that this lecture is conscious of its visual and physical staging. The power of performativity which is at work here makes the audience aware of the techniques for creating evidence that inform the delivery of any academic paper. Even a detail as small as the reassuring warmth of the firm yet soothing voices of Martin Nachbar and Jochen Roller adds to the winning effect of a presentation that confronts the audience with an unsettlingly unusual format acted out within a wellknown setting.
