Friday 18 December 2020
From h 10.30 am to 1.00 pm
From h 10.30 am to 1.00 pm
“An Ideal City” starts on 18 December: an international project coordinated by the Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto – Reggio Emilia in partnership with Les Halles de Schaerbeek – Brussels and the Greek National Opera Ballet – Athens, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
“An Ideal City” aims to explore, in a 22-month process, the value of dance as a form of inhabiting, in connection with contemporary artistic practices. A step-by-step program that will take place in Athens, Reggio Emilia and Brussels linking short choreographic creations – the MicroDances, signed by some of the most relevant contemporary choreographers – to different places in the cities: museums, industrial areas, urban spaces, defining unusual stages but linked to a direct and immediate relationship with the public and the inhabitants.
The online round table will cover the following topics:
- the Micro/Macro relationship introduced by the MicroDances in the dialogue between exhibition and urban spaces;
- ‘inhabit’ a place which dance experiences in relation to different spaces and audiences different kind of spaces and audiences;
- the relationship between the conceptual space of the choreography and the experienced space;
- the Self/Other dialectic related to the reenactment process of the repertoire to a group of non-professional young dancers to be performed in urban areas of the three cities.
