Runnings Sculptures / CHOREOGRAPHY IN ACTION

Exploration through the body

WORK DEMO & TALK / Running Sculptures (DK)
A part of the program CHOREOGRAPHY IN ACTION

About the process towards a participatory performance with children and young people

We invite you to take part in the participatory concept Exploration through the body (Med kroppen på opdagelse) where the artists will share their thoughts and methods behind the choreographic game.

Mette Overgaard, Marlene Bonnesen and Lars Dahl Pedersen are the creators behind Running Sculptures’ participatory performance Exploration through the body.
The performance is a choreographic game where children, young people, and the dance artists are exploring creative tasks, observation, and reflection.

What happens when you insist on cultivating a process, the unpredictability and the change within a finished performance?
The artists have created a concept where they are able to develop and understand their own artistic practice, with each other and at the same time with the children and the young, through layers of choreographic rules, dance scores, and sound landscapes in wireless headphones.

In this version of Choreography in Action we will try out parts of the concept followed by a dialogue around the aspects of working with exploration and participation from a workshop format to a participatory performance format.
