INFO Waterfalls and Meteorites “This workshop will be a study in forces. We will trigger ourselves to witness and mold how our bodies take up, or don't take up space in this world. We will study the body as a mediator and dancing as a mediating practice. We will become bodies of multitude and of constant becoming. The workshop will include stuff like bitchcraft, translating stones, prophetic dancing and practices or porosity. "
BIO Eliisa Erävalo is a Finnish choreographer and dancer based in Stockholm. Eliisa has a long history of working both as a solo artist and a different child of collaborations around Europe and in Sweden. She always explores and works with the concept of "Support" in her different tasks. Eliisas choreographic work contains two "clouds". She has a deep interest in making art in public spaces and has created a work series of interventions on streets. She does this work alone. It is part of her research in the idea of a porous body and the experience of intuition. Mostly Eliisa works in collaborations and with dance. One of them focuses on further intersectional feminism and a non-binary society. The work Eliisa has recently been doing different concept pairs as outside-inside, technology-nature, materia-spirit and winner-loser. She wants to understand how we build togetherness and form strategically in life. Even in that she wants to create space and focus on what we cannot put into words. www.eliisaeravalo.se
INFO about the morning class with Charlotta Ruth Time Based Endeavors
This floor-work based training is reflecting the techniques and practices my body has passed through and remained attentive to with inspiration from e.g. peers of my generation like Bruno Caverna, recent work as a dancer with Alexander Gottfarb as well as own explorations of loops and choreographic clues. Focusing on the distribution of gravity between the floor and which places in and outside the body we chose to give attention, movement sequences are scrolled, scratched and negotiated in time. The training is a physically strengthening class that prepares you for rehearsals. The training at the same time aims to give you a meta cognitive ride for stretching, bending and creatively misusing your habits and memory. Nerdy exploration of how you want to attend movement and how you want to approach learning is welcome! The registration to DIB Meetingpoint is sent to email@example.com no later than 10/9.
