Creation workbooks
Marcelo Evelin proposes to work from the workbooks of 25 years of Demolition Incorporada, his platform of creation as a choreographer, researcher and performer. From the writings, notes, lists, drawings, images and references that emerged and gave form to his dance creations, the participants are invited to create their own cartography, reframing and reigniting the sources and traces of a dance making process. The workshop will approach workbooks to rethink archive, documentation, transmission and appropriation.
