In this workshop we will look at the connections between textile making and choreography, exploring different fabrics, felts and weaves and the philosophical implications of the single fibre’s relation to a larger structure. What can we learn from textiles in terms of craft, technique, structure and composition and how can this knowledge be transferred to the dancing body? A weave, for example, follows a regular pattern and is precisely delimited, while felt is a supple, solid product, which means no cutting of threads, no braiding, just tangling of fibres joined by walking. If a weave relates to a classically set composition of phrases (i.e. ABC, CBA, BAC) then how would a felted composition come into place, where each phrase would be contingent to the next.
Please note: The workshop will be held live in the studio under the measures in place at that time. If this is not possible there will be an online version in any case. Therefore, the number of participants is limited. More information about the measures will be continuously updated on the website and communicated by mail shortly before the workshop starts.
