Part 1 – LAB Process

A process oriented, self-coordinated Lab for movement artists in south Switzerland during the Permanency/Festival Ticino in Danza. 5 days to network, share practices, meet other artists, attend the program of TiD’s new format. 
Artists taking part in the Lab - Process are given a space to work as a group, to connect with the other artists virtually ahead of time, to form a community to explore and share feedbacks, have discussions, jams etc.

The participants will be put in contact ahead of time to co-create a system to work collectively for 5 days towards sharing a process and ideas, there could be space to share some practices and research tools, to just receive inputs from others, to ask questions to fellow artists, to propose a format to explore movement as a collective, to further navigate the process vs product dilemma, (…)
Also there will be the possibility to attend the performances of the 10th edition of TiD, get to know more about the artists invited and who have been working for months within the frame of TiD Permanency new format.

The participants are asked to give a small contribution for the space and other resources that are shared by the Festival (space+kitchen for lunch, wifi, online tools to connect, meeting and planning coordination).

Part 2 – Contemporary dance workshop with Laura Vilar
No one knows what a body dancing can do

During these days I would like to propose different ways of approaching dance. We will work on fixed sequences, improvisations, and somatic explorations that allow us to explore a little deeper. I would like to propose a journey through our physical experience dancing but also through our sensitivity, ways of thinking, questioning and imagining dance.

We will organize different moments of sharing and reflecting together, writing and tracing the experience as another layer of the investigation.

The main objective of this meeting is to share our dances, explore and create thought-action devices that contain the potential to disarm habits and trace new possibilities to dance, create or teach.
