Always wanted to try out contemporary dance? And are interested in visual art? Now is your chance to combine the two!
Guided by two professional dancers, different movement possibilities will be explored through working with/against gravity; physical translation of what is metaphysical (relating to art works on display); and dealing with the space (influence of the characteristics of the space on movement).
The workshop includes
VIEWING OF THE EXHIBITION
» SHORT CONVERSATIONS: discussion about art works
» DEMONSTRATION: dance performance by Angelina Deck / Ana Leonor Ladas
» MOVEMENT EXPLORATION: bodies in motion, bodies in stillness, improvisation both working individual and in groups
PLAYING GRAVITY is part of public programs accompanying the exhibition Eve's, Isaac's and Mine at De Punt that presents five Amsterdam-based artists’ takes on the term “gravity” whether it is moral, emotional, physical or scientific. As a way of expanding the dialogue, the workshop aims to take the participants on a journey using the body as the main instrument.
