On Tension

Working on narratives, daily life experiences and “body language” manifestations in order to see the possibilities to create alternative strategies in doing dance, theatre and art; strategies that could play on the notions of truth and untruth, reality and fiction, working on topics such as disappearance, void, absence, rumors and war in relation to the idea of documents and body movement... The workshop will be an open dialogue with the participants from different art’s disciplines.
