Workshops - Lectures:
Physical cinema - Physical theatre - Text to movement and movement to text.
Objectives of the workshops/ lectures;
As a visiting teacher on the course ‘Dance and New Media’ my objectives will be to introduce the students, from the different areas of performing arts and visual and media arts, to a new approach to observing and documenting movement and dance. An inter-disciplinary approach will be used and the students are not confined to their areas of expertise but will be exposed to other methods of working.
The fact that the students come from different Nordic, Baltic and other countries and that their areas of work extend from music to dance to visual arts has an added value. It is rare that this combination of students, disciplines and teachers can work together on an extended project.
Content of the teaching:
Teaching will encompass an introduction to my working methods, idea development, own field work, discussions and the making of small film clips to be used in the final week of the workshop.
At the end:
Apart from the students gathering their own material for the creating of a final collaborative showing, I expect the students to have experienced a unique way of working across disciplines, methodologies and countries.
