Noa & Snow / part of Close Encounters
THE FESTIVAL CLOSE ENCOUNTERS
Noa & Snow – a writing atelier in a choreographic work by Alix Eynaudi (AU)
Ticket link and performance schedule will follow soon!
A gentle experiment between the everyday and the event.
Noa & Snow is a poetry studio taking place during a choreographic event: in Noa & Snow, Alix and her guests present a dance performance during which the audience is given the possibility to write, a writing atelier into a performance, a co-working salon. There, the audience members are invited to work on their almost daily writing tasks: applications, e-mails, long forgotten instant messages, shopping lists, letter maybe.
In other words, Noa & Snow offers a space in which choreographic occurrences become intertwined with writing: a poetry studio, a studio to be poetically inhabited.
The proposal puts forward not only an experimental artistic presentation but also an experimental mode of witnessing, it implies a specific mode of participation: the Hosts will welcome the audience and guide them into writing.
Everything taking place in the space is to be considered poetry. If the audience members did not bring their own laptops/phones/notebooks/documents, they will be provided with writing material. However, their contribution has no predetermined extension, it can be as short or as long as they want it to be!
Noa & Snow offers the opportunity to present “doing art” as any other activity that is recognizable and accepted as normal by everyone. As one makes bread or repairs cars, sells insurances or answers his mails, one do dance music or poetry and it is an activity that has its natural place in the life of a city.
