Dance Gate, as a partner to the European program Modul Dance 2010-2014 in collaboration with the Dancehouse Lefkosia and the University of Nicosia Dance Program, cordially invites you to participate in the research project ~As we begin, so shall we go~ with Lili Mihajlovic.
The research project will take place at Dancehouse Lefkosia from the 24th until the 27th of September 2014.
It is addressed to CHOREOGRAPHERS, DANCERS, VISUAL ARTISTS, ACTORS, MUSICIANS AND ANYONE INTERESTED IN PERFORMING ARTS.
~As we begin, so shall we go~ is a research project concentrating on understanding and practicing one´s performing skills (quantification of the performing apparatus) as well as understanding body knowledge and how it interacts, supports, structures and influences group dynamic.
Through a suggested working methodology the project will disclose the layers of a performing act itself. It will attempt to envelope as broad of the range of performing skills as possible through doing as well as reflecting on it. By performing it is more “the how” that is in foreground than “the what”, so our personal approach to material (movement, text, …) is more emphasized than the material itself.
