Research workshop for professional dancers

Saturday 31 July, Sunday1 August, 12:00-15:00, Arsenal • Studio 3

If you are interested please send an email to by Thursday 29 July .

Workshop REtransLATE
For the next creation REtransLATE, Mirte Bogaert is looking forward to get in touch with professional dancers at ImPulsTanz to have 2 workshop sessions together of 3 hours on 31 July & 1 August at Arsenal. In these workshop sessions we are going to research some of the current questions related to the creation of the piece.

REtransLATE is a performance about translation and (mis)interpretation. Translating in this project takes point of departure in the aspects of communication beyond the meaning in the words: the audible and rhythmical, the breath, the intonation, the movement of the gaze and the relation to the moving body. During the pre-project, a dance material in 5 variations was developed. This movement material, as well as texts - that will be developed together- are the base to be interpreted and translated by the artists involved in the creation.

For this creation Stephan Meidell is the sounddesigner/musician, Randiane Sandboe is the lightdesigner, now Mirte Bogaert is looking forward getting in touch with dancers to research movement material during the workshop sessions as well as possibly getting in touch with dancers to collaborate with for the creation.

Creation process starts in the spring of 2022, with premiere in October 2022 during Oktoberdans at BIT Teatergarasjen, Bergen, Norway.

Mirte Bogaert is looking for professional dancers that are eligible to work in Europe. Dancers that are interested in the project and open to collaborate with artists from different disciplines, as well as having a strong base in contemporary techniques and improvisation, can send an email with a short text where you describe which languages you speak, what the relation of language and dance means to you as well as what motivates you to take part in these workshop sessions. Send as well a cv and a link to a video of you dancing to Please take contact if you have questions or concerns.
