Small Stage
27.01.2018 – 28.01.2018
Blick durch das Fenster in ein Studio des tanzhaus nrw.

The annual symposium for creatives and students from related practical and theoretical study branches pursues the idea that reflection on and in dance always carries roots in practical physicality – therefore, theory and practice have always gone hand in hand. In Lectures, performances and workshops during this fourth edition Physical Dramaturgy, titled “Love & Affection”, choreographer Yasmeen Gooder and lecturer Agata Siniarska, among others, are delving into the quest for the space taken up by the concept of “affective labour” in the arts. At the same time, the question for social tendencies in the arts and how they could find their way into an exemplary negotiation lies a the centre of the discussion.

Sat 27.01. 18:00 – 22:00 + Sun 28.01. 11:00 – 19:00
