Some Choreographies – workshop
- Free entry based on registration
The workshop is a playful exploration of choreographic composition through a dance video archive.
Starting from the material of the performance Some Choreographies and taking our cue from the embodiment of a set of images (photographs and videos), we will be using them to explore various exercises in imitative interaction, generating various different forms of movement qualities and of representation of the body.
