Facilitated OPENLAB with Danai Pappa
6 April 2018
Mine, Yours, Theirs: Exchanging Movements
Research Studio | 10am-1pm | £7 suggested donation
During this lab we will explore ways to produce, exchange and reproduce movement. Expressing either something visual or conceptual, we will go through a series of playful tasks such as being the same, being different, copying, and mimicking. By being present and conscious we will keep a constant dialogue between the members of the group while we will still act as individuals.
I believe that choreography is inspired by dancers. Exchanging dances and building bridges between the participants, we will challenge clichés and personal habits in order to expand choreographic possibilities by sharing movement preferences and idiosyncrasies. The theme focuses on subjectivity and raises fundamental issues such as originality, authorship, inspiration and interpretation.
This session is open to adults with minimum two years dance experience.
Sessions are open to any performers: dancers, musicians, actors and anyone interested in presence and awareness in performance. Sessions can be facilitated by any participant of OPENLAB. If you’d like to facilitate one of these sessions in the future send an email to Antonio de la Fe: firstname.lastname@example.org
