"Dialogues about..."
This year I would like to talk with you about the expressive means of a choreographer. What can be used to convey our ideas besides movements. Together we will try to understand the concept of «the system of images of a performance» and how the idea and poetics of the creator are expressed through it. Is there a difference between a «metaphor» and «metaphorical vision»? What is the first and the second plane of a piece? We will be watching videos of new works by famous choreographers, talk about contemporary music and painting, literature and poetry and..............many other things.
It is important for us to have an open dialogue, to hear your voice, to get to know your vision of the world and ..............of the theatre.
This class is open for all trainees of Contemporary Dance Laboratory 2013.
