Dance artists and other performing arts professionals are invited to join a 3-day Atelier to explore different approaches to equity as an integral part of dance practices.

The Atelier is co-organised by Dansateliers Rotterdam and ICK Dans Amsterdam and takes place in Rotterdam on 17 - 18 May and in Amsterdam on 19 May during the Moving Futures festival.

Co-curated by dance artists Connor Schumacher, Jija Sohn and Aleksandra Lemm, and Christian Guerematchi, the Atelier focuses on sharing embodied practices and tools for working from a (more) equitable ground.

During the course of the three days, we will awaken our soft skills and explore tools for inviting and exercising equitability in the context and relation of our moving bodies before arriving into our own bodies and artistic choice-making.
