Practice-led symposium The Significance of the Body in Performance07/02/2019 14:00 - 18:00
Theater aan de Rijn, Arnhem
De Nieuwe Oost, ArtEZ Bachelor of Dance and NCPA organize a practice-led symposium as a follow-up to “Stylized Repetition of Acts?”. The symposium focuses on how contemporary dance and performance address the body and physicality and on how this resonates in our current society in order to contribute to multidisciplinary knowledge exchange for and with performing artists. The symposium takes place during contemporary dance festival Moving Futures in Arnhem.
What bodies are (not) represented on stage? How do makers deal with physicality? What are the meaning and the importance of the body in performance? These questions form a starting point for dialogue between theatre maker Igor Vrebac and professor of Culture & Inclusivity Liedeke Plate (Radboud University) that grounds and shapes this seminar. Their dialogue will continue with the participants during the interactive seminar. We talk, share, practice and reflect together.
Free entrance for ArtEZ, Radboud University and HAN-students (registration required).
Professionals, makers and performers: €5,00 incl. one free drink.
Please note: Upon registration you need to choose if you either want to watch or participate in the practical session with the makers. Practical work is accessible for all levels.
