SYMPOSIUM 

 

Solo Dance – Focusing the Self and Beyond

 

 

Dance-solos are the smallest units of choreographic creations, but certainly deserve special attention: Usually reduced to the body they are able to reveal the wide range of physical expression and what movement can achieve. For dancers and choreographers, they are considered as ideal means for self-positioning and self-definition, offering an almost limitless space for experiments, and demand clear artistic decisions like hardly any other form. It is no coincidence that solo dance has repeatedly influenced the development of modern and contemporary dance to a great extent.

 

For the first time, the current festival edition will approach the format "solo dance" from a scientific perspective – through a symposium that aims at a professional audience, but also wants to address an interested public.

 

“Solo Dance – Focusing the Self and Beyond” will provide space for questions about the particularities of solo work, its influence on individual research and implications for choreographic creation in a broader sense. Above that, the symposium especially wants to look beyond the solitary self on stage.

It will examine the embeddedness of solo works within a larger social context and discuss the political potential of this format.  

 

 

 

Participation: The symposium will take place under appropriate hygiene conditions with audience at Kunstmuseum Bonn.

 

Admission is free, but personal registration is required. Please send an email with your name, address and telephone number to: dramaturgie(at)cocoondance.de

Registration deadline is October 20, 2020.   

 

To enable a larger group of people to participate, the event will also be available as live stream under https://www.facebook.com/CocoonDance
