“Dramaturgy is for me learning to handle complexity”, wrote the late Flemish dramaturg and theorist Marianne Van Kerkhoven. When the rehearsal room becomes a space for collaborative research, it is essential that there is a shared dramaturgical language that is used during the work. How to develop that vocabulary? And what dramaturgical tools may be useful during this type of work? Dramaturg Katalin Trencsényi will guide participants through a combination of a dance laboratory, presentations, and group discussions to help them find their own answers to these questions. Practical contributions and feedback are welcome!
This module is recommended for dancers, choreographers, as well as for students and academics who want to deepen their understanding of dance and movement dramaturgy.
Please note: prior to the workshop, you’ll receive a small assignment to prepare at home in advance. So, please make sure, you register in time!
