Dennis Deter, Anja Müller and Lea Martini met in 2007 at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam. They share an interest in collaborative experiments and intense physicalities. They seek for a constituting way of questioning social conditions we are all influenced by. Their research deals with the physical emergence of unforeseen associations and experiences within these conditions.
Marble Crowd (Sigurður Arent, Kristinn Guðmundsson, Katrín Gunnarsdóttir, Védís Kjartansdóttir, Saga Sigurðardóttir) is a collective of artists based in Reykjavík, Iceland, who have been working together in various constellations for more than a decade. Their choreographed concert Scape Of Grace (2013) and techno-tragedy Predator (2014) both premiered at the Reykjavik Dance Festival, where Scape of Grace was nominated for an Icelandic Performing Arts Award.

The Media of Collaboration
Every collaboration is to a certain extent a social experiment. In an attempt to develop a slightly more objective perspective on this particular mode of ‘togethering’, which we call collaboration, the second day focuses on the media of collaboration, e.g. friendship, mutual trust, respect and recognition. The day closes with a temporarily validated glossary of the media of collaboration.

Choreographic Practices of Working Together
After discussions on the structural aspects of solidarity, as well as the binding and/or separating media of collaboration, the third day of the symposium brings people into the studio. Two parallel workshops in the morning and two parallel workshops in the afternoon suggest methods of and approaches to working together artistically, while also involving the body on a practical level. How can these models of collaboration feed in to other working frames?
