FASCINATION AND IRRITATION: STORYTELLING IN CONTEMPORARY DANCE
How do the contents of a dance piece come into being? Who creates them? And do I – as a spectator – have to understand a choreography? Participants will explore these questions on a practical dance level and gather their own experience in various forms of storytelling. They will dance haikus, comics, shopping lists and Shakespeare dramas and try out different methods of dissociation, montage and chance. Film excerpts of choreographies that are exemplary for dominant forms of storytelling, help to supplement personal experience with the transmission of theoretical knowledge.
Open to all | No prior experience required
