Body & Performance Practices

Body & Performance Practices – formerly known as Training & Workshops – is not only open to all local dance and performance professionals, but artists from other disciplines as well as enthusiasts and amateurs are also welcome to join. This new training concept expands how dance and performance can help us see and explore different forms of knowledge, generating a unique place for contemporary artistic and methodical discourse. An active area of possibilities to experiment, analyze, research, dream, discuss, take risks, realize, construct and deconstruct.


New format: Workshops on Stage with Elizabeth Ward and Oleg Soulimenko

Open Space is back: On 3 December, from 11.00–17.00, you can use the Studio 1 in a self-organised way and without prior registration. Details
