- Markéta Stránská, Alessandro Schiattarella / Forward Dance Company (Leipzig)
On November 3rd with audio description.
euro-scene Leipzig is anchoring itself even more firmly in the city of Leipzig. To this end, we are going to enter into close partnerships with regional artists for two years at a time. The first “Associate Artists” for the years 2021/2022 are the Forward Dance Company of the LOFFT – DAS THEATER in Leipzig. The Forward Dance Company is the first professional mixed abled dance company based in Saxony. EINBLICKE invites you to look through the rehearsal stage keyhole and dive into the work of the company.
The curtain falls and the performance begins. The audience follows the performance on stage, experiences highs and lows, with applause and bows at the end. But how does a dance piece actually come into being and which moments influence the path to the end result? Glimpses into the production of a new piece are known as work-in-progress. But are these free from pressure to create a finished stage piece?
What efforts and inspiration are involved in an intensive rehearsal period? Do differences arise in the working process when the bodies of the choreographers, as well as those of some of the dancers, do not correspond to the physicality normalized by dance?
Distinct forces are set in motion by choreographers Markéta Stránska and Alessandro Schiatarella and the audience can follow two concentrated research processes. These become part of the promising, but also fragile moment that creates a new work. Detached from the pressures of production and premiere, Forward Dance Company shares its research space with the public.
Both performances will be followed by an audience discussion with Gustavo Fijalkow and the two choreographers.
On November 3rd, we invite you to the symposium UNPROFESSIONAL WORLDS at LOFFT – DAS THEATER.
