Open Call | Cats & Poetry workshop

Moving in November is inviting to participate in a two-day workshop lead by Swedish choreographer Pontus Pettersson. Over these two days, Pontus will open up his practice to host the different methods and practices that are part of the work Pancor Poetics (which will be shown in this year’s Moving in November Festival), including one of his seminal pieces The Cat Practice.
