Through Performative and Choreographic Practices – Workshop by Thiago Granato

Thiago Granato gives a workshop at CoFestival in Lubljana: Through Performative and Choreographic Practices.

Thiago Granato invites to an artistic immersion where individual and collective work situations serve as a basis for exploring different compositional logics. Through choreography we studies the body’s performative capacity to create, penetrate, melt, fuse, move and transform different contexts. With this workshop Granato shares his work methodology and propose parameters to discuss how we can identify, situate and sustain a performative practice and a choreographic project nowadays.

Historical Figures. Introduction to Contemporary Dance

This workshop led by Rok Vevar and Jasmina Založnik draws on documentary film footage from the collection of the Temporary Slovenian Dance Archive at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova. It takes the form of lectures and discussions, provides the spectator with basic reading and contextual tools with which we enter into the process of »reading« and thinking about contemporary dance.
