Infrastructure and Working Conditions, screening and discussion

The issue of space is very fundamentally linked to movement research, as this is only possible if the conditions for it exist in terms of time, space, temperature and hygiene. In movement research, rehearsal spaces are transformed into studios, working dance spaces that, with their specific materiality, provide the experimental, methodological and analytical parameters that can be used to translate research into results. At the same time, movement research also requires premises in which the results or processes can be shared with a public that is willing to engage with kinetic-dance research with their own gaze. After watching a film about the Tala Dance School in Zagreb, which helped transform the contemporary dance landscape of Zagreb, we will discuss such issues with our guests. We are interested in different examples and dynamics in the infrastructure for performing arts and the ways of managing them – what is physical space and how can it be shaped to meet the needs of a certain way of working and a certain community?

The discussion will be moderated by Tjaša Pureber.
