EDN in collaboration with Kino Šiška invite you to the EDN Atelier on 20th and 21st November, linked to the November online edition of the International Festival of Contemporary Dance - CoFestival, organized by Kino Šiška and Nomad Dance Academy Slovenia.
The two days online programme combines theory and practice, historical and contemporary examples and offers lectures, workshops and debates on the proposed topic. The EDN Atelier is recommended for dramaturges, artistic directors, programmers, curators and producers.
Due to the actual circumstances of COVID-19 pandemic, the regulatory measures that different EU states took and disciplinary cautions we have been faced with in the months from the beginning of 2020, the CoFestival co-curatorial team decided to take into account a human voice (a medium of subject) that seemed to erode in the contemporary dance to much greater extent than almost in any other contemporary artistic practice. Much less protected than traditional artistic practices and disciplines, it seemed to be vanished from the public (cultural) sphere to a critical extent.
Once the body is publicly regulated and physical contact limited to zero, dance does not loose only its primary source, an instrument, a medium of expression, action or movement but in the context of an artistic labor also the working territory and therefore its political voice. In the given circumstances the latter could be considered as recognized only, once it is counter-balanced by the systemic measures of the cultural and social policies: considered and included in the measures taken by them in order to reduce the negative consequences of the deficit of dance labor.
Therefore co-curatiorial team decided to introduce the topic of a voice in contemporary dance as our common case study, problem, topic and question in another edition of EDN Atelier. The two days programme combines theory and practice, historical and contemporary examples and offers lectures, workshops and debates on the proposed topic. The EDN Atelier is recommended for dramaturges, artistic directors, programmers, curators and producers.
The EDN Atelier will take place online, prior registration is obligatory.
Moderated and led by: Irena Tomažin – Zagoričnik, Jasmina Založnik and Rok Vevar, members of the co-curatorial team of CoFestival 2020.
