This is so f***dance!
Starting from practising international folk dances we will create new folkdances that are specific to the group present at the workshop. The workshop will be an intensive period, in which we will create a temporary community in the given space and time and through this invent new folkdances that come from the traditions this community sets up and lives for the time they enter the workshop space.
We are interested in the way folkdances come into existence. How can one retrace the emergence of folk dances out of necessities and customs of a certain community at a certain time? We want to transfer this into our time - how long does it take for an emerging dance to become a folk dance and thus immersed into the traditions of a certain community? How does it function if one invents the necessities and customs for a limited period of time - i.e. the workshop duration.
