JUST IN TIME / LETTERS TO DANCE
16th May 2019 | 19:30 - 21:00
JUST IN TIME
All memories, all age groups, all abilities, everybody is very much welcome in this process. Diversity is demanded. Just in Time started in 2016 as a dance heritage project. The idea behind it is to consider dance history as an instantaneous and local phenomenon written by people from their memories, experiences and desires. This project creates a collective and messy imaginary world which is created hand in hand by the amateur, the left-out, the other, the kid, the professional. The aim is not to claim an alternative history, but rather to add a chaotic and open source to the clean and curated trajectory of the so called dance history.
LETTERS TO DANCE
The topic of this workshops is dance in all its various forms and possibilities. We start the workshop by facilitating discussions about dance. We do this by leading simple verbal and choreographic games and creating space for open talks and exchange of memories. These encounters usually center around personal stories from all the participants. We first ask that the participants write or draw their favorite movements. This acts as a warm up into the writing practice. After that we ask that they directly address dance in the form of a letter. This is an opportunity for one to write down one’s own experiences with dance, whether it is moments of happiness or frustrations.
Please note that this event takes place at Hellerau European Center for the Arts
