conferință@ Festivalul E-Motional

[ZonaD, str. Iulia Hașdeu nr. 3]

Participanți: Joana von Mayer Trindade, Joclécio Azevedo, Rogério Nuno Costa

În această prezentare, 3 artiști stabiliți în Portugalia vor vorbi despre experiența lor în dezvoltarea, producția și prezentarea pieselor de dans sau afiliate domeniului dansului. Aceasta va genera un moment de reflecție asupra unor perspective personale diferite cu privire la procesul artistic și la modul de dezbatere în dans. Din aceste motive, formatul conferinței nu va fi unul convențional, ci va fi orientat mai degrabă spre o concepție mai largă și mai personală asupra împărtășirii istoriei și experienței. Eveniment organizat în conexiune cu Platforma de Reflecție E-Motional.

ZonaD Lounge cuprinde o serie de evenimente precum conferințe, proiecții de filme, ateliere și dezbateri de istoria și teoria dansului contemporan și performance art-ului susținute de artiști, teoreticieni și critici de dans din România și din străinătate. Avînd o frecvență regulată, acestea își propun să familiarizeze publicul din România cu practici artistice și estetici variate în domeniul dansului contemporan, încercînd să ofere un context pentru spectacolele care sînt produse sau/ și prezentate în România și să contribuie la dezvoltarea unor perspective și discursuri critice cu privire la acestea. Invităm deopotrivă publicul larg și profesioniștii din dans la aceste întîlniri în format lejer, de tip cafenea, în care să aflăm împreună lucruri noi și vechi și să discutăm într-un mod relaxat.

Donație sugerată: 10 lei.
