Seminar: The significance of the body in performance

During Moving Futures Festival in Arnhem, De Nieuwe Oost, ArtEZ Bachelor of Dance and NCPA organize a practice-led seminar on how contemporary dance and performance address the body and physicality and how this resonates in our current society in order to contribute to multidisciplinary knowledge exchange for and with performing artists. The seminar takes place during contemporary dance festival Moving Futures in Arnhem.

What bodies are (not) represented on stage? How do makers deal with physicality? What are the meaning and the importance of the body in performance? These questions form a starting point for dialogue between theatre maker Igor Vrebac and professor of Culture & Inclusivity Liedeke Plate (Radboud University) that grounds and shapes this seminar. Their dialogue will continue with the participants during the interactive seminar. We talk, share, practice and reflect together.

Students of ArtEZ, Radboud University and the HAN register for free. Partners and supporters of the NCPA network as well. Professionals and practitioners: €5,00 incl one free drink.
