WORKING PRESENTATION – MA Choreography

Time: Thursday 10th December, 17.00 hrs
Duration: App. 1.5 hrs
Place: Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Stage 5

choreographersOn Thursday 10th December choreography students will present work developed in connection with a three-week workshop on choreographic methods. On the one hand the workshop sought to articulate what it is a choreographer does when doing what one does, and on the other to develop methods for future works. We have worked on articulating methods both as a tool for clarifying existing ways of working, and at the same as something that can be applied prescriptively to change or develop one’s own work.

By and with: Karen Eide Bøen, Roza Moshtaghi, Shi Pratt, Simen Korsmo Robertsen, Kristian Støvind and Bente Alice Westgård.
Welcome!

 

The workshop was part of a five week course ‘Atmosphere – let’s put it to the stage!’
Course leader: Amanda Steggell
Guest teachers: Bojana Cvejić and Ingri Fiksdal

Via various approaches the course addressed the shifting contexts of choreography today. Combining practical and theoretic activities while encountering various choreographic processes, practices and thinking, it aimed to critically explore the atmosphere of one’s own choreographic enquiry. Furthermore the course introduced issues of artistic research from a choreographic perspective (from within and beyond the ‘institutional’ sphere) and possible modes of conveying enquiry to a public.
