Moving Heads Choreography in discussion | K3 Hamburg
With the start of the 08/09 programme year, K3 also starts the Moving Heads lecture series. Once a month the focus is on the interfaces of dance, choreography and performance as artistic practice and as theoretical discourse, with the aesthetic, historic, and socio-political contexts of artistic and theoretical work another topic of particular interest. Its also about creating another form of communication between the audience, artists, researchers and institutions. The idea of discourse as a complex communication structure in direct exchange should be reflected not only in the content, but also in the form of the discussion. To start the series, Irmela Kstner and Barbara Schmidt-Rohr (Tanzinitiative Hamburg) are inviting guests to a discussion with choreographer Claudia Lichtblau and director Laurent Chtouane about thinking in bodies, shifts in time, the spaces of language and movement, and the gaze of the spectator.

Herbstleuchten / Tanzplan Potsdam
Presentation of works from the Potsdam Residencies 2008. While most of the artistic work and research taking place in the fabrik essentially occurs behind closed doors, "Herbstleuchten" seeks to open up these very same doors to the wider public. The showcase presents work both by artists taking part in the "Tanzplan Potsdam: Artists-in-Residency" program, as well as resident fabrik artists showing current work that reflects a wide range of artistic formats and signatures. What they have in common is a concentrated focus on the body - examining its potential, exploring codifications of and perceptions about the body, while utilizing it in unexpected ways as a carrier of events and facilitator of communication between performers and audience. We are greatly looking forward to two intensive weekends with dance pieces, performances, concerts and a film.
