25 May – 2 June 2019
CINETic is organizing an international experimental CHOREOGRAPHIC WORKSHOP, with a team of artists, choreographers, anthropologists, animators and sound specialists, over the course of a week at the end of May. The results of the workshop will be presented in the form of a public performance at Club CONTROL on June 2nd 2019.
We are looking for 6 confirmed dancers. No style restriction.
You should be willing to work on an improvisation basis, and to develop your own body/gesture repertoire for dance.
The workshop is based on a listening soundscape experience, starting from field recordings taken around Văcărești Lake. What does sound create in you? How does it initiate your movements?
You will work in parallel with the Animation Worksheep Special Session – a team of motion graphics designers and animators who will draw scapes which evolve with sound and movement.
Your activity will take place at CINETic in three phases:
25/26/27th May 2019 – dance / impro / listening
28/29/30th May 2019 – interacting with technology
31st May 2019 /1st/2nd June 2019 – putting it all together for the final performance
APPLICATIONS: firstname.lastname@example.org (CV + short letter of intent)

YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH:
Anne Dubos is an anthropologist and a transmedia artist. Her research focuses on both fundamental objects (such as Indian aesthetics, cognition, praxeology) and the design of experimental devices for theatre and dance. Since 2005, Anne Dubos traces the study of the history of Indian theatres and highlights the variety of techniques of the body of the actor. In search of new paradigms, she questions today the emergence of new theories on the perception of movement and cognition. She founded the company Little Heart Movement, in which dancers, actors, digital artists, engineers, computer scientists, singers, musicians, anthropologists, geographers, architects, psychologists and (bio) mechanics collaborate. In Paris as well as in India, she organizes interdisciplinary workshops where each actor is invited to improvise within a recording device, both as an author and as an interpreter of the trace that it forms with its body within the common space of a collective framework narrative.
