A 2 day workshop about your urge to create a choreography and the importance to find your choreographical identity. The following issues will be addressed: How can you sharpen your source of inspiration? How can you develop tasks and questions that allow you to bring your source of inspiration into the studio, discovering the core of it by intertwining practical and theoretical research? How to observe your sketches during this process? How to reflect on it? How can you have an inner personal reflection and a shared reflection with your dancers and first audience as well?
November 7th and 8th during DNA 2014
English language workshop. The cost is 50,00 €
