workshop w. choreographer Pipaluk and activist Tash Verco

looking for context and reflection? a need to engage with the issues of the world, our surroundings, what concerns us, local and global issues, as well as our private sphere of interaction.
Our work as dancers and artists need to mean something, to be part of a bigger picture, to touch and move people, to be part of a public debate and reach beyond our own artists world.

A prototype workshop guided by two experienced people, who are curious to make new connections. Included is daily dance sessions with a focus on release technique and improvisation, contact improvisation, and engaging with the near environment. Participants are invited to bring their own ideas and projects, and to be inspired by a variety of subjects and discussions. We dive into different visions and experiences, and explore models for communication skills and project building.
