About Asad Raza’s Weekend Guests
As part of Root sequence. Mother tongue (2017), Asad Raza has invited a series of guests to occupy the installation with choreographic, musical, and intellectual events for weekend visitors to the museum. Comprising mentors, friends, and younger creative practitioners, the group is a plurivocal portrait of the artist’s community. View the full program.

May 6th and May 7th: Andros Zins-Browne
Already Unmade (2016) is a durational performance by choreographer Andros Zins-Browne. The performance is conceived as a public rehearsal, where Zins-Browne practices the remixing, overlapping, extending and warping of his own repertoire, attempting to 'unmake' a personal history of choreography. 

Interwoven with jokes and stories on notions of speed and progress, Already Unmade reverses the order in which choreography is normally created.  Zins-Browne begins with his own finished, 'choreographic objects' and subjects them to ensuing processes where they begin to unravel.

Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York) is an American choreographer who lives and works in Brussels. His work consists of dance performances and hybrid environments at the intersection between installation, performance and conceptual dance, and explores the ways in which the human body, movement and matter can interact until they appear to take on each other's properties. Zins-Browne’s performances, which cross regularly between stage and fine art contexts have been presented mainly across Europe including the Centre Pompidou Paris, Dance Umbrella London, HAU Berlin, MDT Stockholm, Het Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, De Singel Antwerp, Kaaitheater Brussels and the Impulse Festival, Düsseldorf where he received the Goethe Institute Award for his performance The Host. At The Villa Empain in Brussels, Already Unmade was presented as a series of solo performances by four dancers, throughout a three and a half month-long exhibition.  His most recent performance Atlas Revisited, a collaboration with visual artist Karthik Pandian, was produced and premiered at EMPAC in Troy, NY in 2016. In 2013, Andros founded his own association for artistic research and production, The Great Indoors.
