Day 2 | 9th of December
Curated by Polski Teatr Tańca (Poland)
Optimal Training for the Contemporary Dancer & Involvement of the Public in Dancer’s Everyday Life.
Is ballet technique so necessary for the contemporary dancer’s training? How can a ballet dancer improve contemporary dance skills? These are some of the questions the Polish Dance Theatre will discuss with its guests, with a focus on the essential elements for the contemporary dancer’s training to make him/herself versatile. With a special focus on Audience Development, experts and keynote speakers will discuss the practices used by institutions to engage the audience in everyday life of a dancer. A crucial aspect tackled will be the education of the public: what is the best age to involve audience in dance? And which are the methods for it? Is there still a way to attract the adults?
“Choreographers’ Talks on Optimal Training for the Contemporary Dancer and Audience Development Practices”.
The international choreographers, Václav Kuneš (Czech Republic), Maciej Kuźmiński (Poland) and Yoshiko Waki (Germany), will reflect together on which techniques and methods can nurture contemporary dancer training. Furthermore, they will discuss practices how to reach a wider audience and involve its members in dance.
