Dance Dramaturgy & Creative Process
The workshop will offer practical tools and exercises to reflect upon, to evaluate and eventually to transform and improve the creative process.
Using the cross, circle and labyrinth as graphic symbols, we will discuss the essential polarities of the creative process: perception, formation, intuition and experience.
In the workshop we will focus on perception (what to look for), articulation (how to express oneself best in order to get what one is looking for) and interdisciplinary practices (looking at how artists work in other disciplines and finding creative ‘translations’ of this toward one’s own practice).
Through practical and physical exercises we will explore how dramaturgy/the dramaturge can contribute to this process as witness, dialogue partner and ‘editor’. We will focus amongst others on the editing process and the importance of rhythm and transitions inside this process.
The final goal of the workshop is to gain a different, renewed perspective of one’s own creative and choreographic process and methodologies.
This workshop is addressed to choreographers of all ages and experiences as well as to dancers, artists from other disciplines or dramaturges.
