The presence of our place: The introductory workshop will draw lines between the participants, their practices, and our mutual surroundings during the Travers-week, the architecture of Dokk1. How are we shaped by our physical and symbolic environment, and how do we actively shape it?
Wednesday, 8 May – Eurydike? vol. 1
Hosts: composer Helmut Oehring, stage director Stefanie Wördemann & sound designer Torsten Ottersberg
The presence of our history: Eurydike? vol. 1 – a first part in a coming series of documentary-poetic works by Helmut Oehring and his team, performed in Aarhus in the SPOR festival – focuses on female perspectives in male dramas. The work and the workshop is about a quest for language in music and gesture, performance and dance, sound and video.
Thursday 9 May and Friday 10 May – Walk and Talk
Hosts: interdisciplinary artists Margrét Bjarndóttir and Lola Arias (as a guest on Friday)
The presence of your body: Every body is an endless well of movements. In the workshop, we do not direct, we do not take decisions – but we listen to our currents and the weather that is going on inside us at the moment. And then we just follow it.
