Tanzplan Potsdam: Artists in Residence: Arbeitswochen Choreografie #2 - Working Together

Just as it did last year, the fabrik will also hold the Arbeitswochen Choreografie (Choreography Workweeks) this summer. It is a platform for young choreographers, who will be able to work for two weeks in the Potsdam Studios. The focus in 06 was on solo works, but in 07 the joint starting point will be the topic of Working Together. Collaboration has become a buzzword in the area of dance in recent years. But how can collaboration be (variously) implemented in the choreographic working process? Which methods of working meet which needs, and how does a specific method of working influence the choreographic product? The fabrik has invited five groups from Berlin, London, Stockholm and Zagreb to discuss and try out collaborative forms of work in collective workshops (with Antonia Baehr and Lit Walkey among others) both as part of an exchange with international mentors, and of course in work on individual projects.
The groups will present the results of their work in an Open Studio on August 4th at 6 pm.
