Wild Card residency for TASK15 in Montpellier
From March 7 to 11, 2015 the collective TASK 15 was invited to a residency at the CCN Montpellier. The group was composed of 6 members (Gisela Muller (DE), Sonja Pregrad (DE/CRO), Igor Koruga (DE/SER), Tamara Curić (CRO), Larisa Navojec (CRO), Gregor Kamnikar (SLO). They worked in the studio named l’Atelier. During the residency, the CCN organized three meetings with the ICI-CCN Staff, with the ex.e.r.ce students and on the last day with everybody from ICI-CCN de Montpellier.
TASK 15 – collaborative authorship proposal for expanded choreographies of inter-localities. They are normally seven artists who all also work as cultural organizers in different institutions (Tanzfabrik, TALA dance centre, Stanica, Federacija Deluje, NDA) and have been brought together by collaborating on the international project TASK since 2011. TASK is an interactive dance journal-project. It entails the explorative, performative, educational, documentary and visual/graphical aspect. The original idea for the project came from graphic designer and dancer Martina Granić, who in 2011, as part of her graphic design studies, created dance “wall newspapers”. The main conceptual axes of her project were the categorization of the creative process, communicating methodology/technology to readers/artists and the possibility of parallel documentation/archives. The project in its current form was started that same year in cooperation with Sonja Pregrad and at the initiative of TALA Dance Center/Platforma HR festival, or rather, Tamara Curić and Larisa Navojec, who took that concept and saw the potential for activating the dance scene in a new way in it. The basic idea of creating a wider project was based on creating a platform for documenting the systematics of (dance) creation, as well as publishing, archiving and analysing that material, followed by exchanging methodologies, cooperation and questioning authorship through its fragmenting, transposing and reframing. For each TASK, a choreographer is invited to propose 7 instructions, as steps towards creation of a work. These are published, together with a documentation of his/her work and then other professional and young choreographers or artists from other media are invited to use these TASKs to create a work in a dialogue with the written steps. The project has so far, over last 4 years, brought together over 50 artists of different generations, aesthetics, media and nationalities.
The residency in Zagreb took place from March 17 to April 24, 2016 and concluded with the performance of TASK15 at Pogon Jedinstvo on April 18, 2016.
