The Choreographic Forum is a moderated discussion of experts and enthusiasts of dance, performance and contemporary art, held as part of the international festival 4+4 Days in Motion.
The discussion focuses on a specific topic based on the dance and performative aspects of performances in dialogue with contemporary art. Through discussions, we seek to understand and reflect the themes and phenomena that influence artists’ thinking and artistic production. And in this way, to enrich the collective knowledge of our dynamically developing field. The chosen topic for this year is “The role of the maker vs. The role of the audience”.
Discussions will be led by experts:
Irene Filiberti (dance critic and artistic advisor working for Centre Pompidou, FR), Markéta Fantová (scenographer and artistic director of PQ, CZ), Linus Gratte (curator of Performing Art and programer for public for Centre Pompidou, FR), and other guests.
Discussions will be held in English.
For whom the event is intended:
(1) Professional public: dance professionals – active dancers, choreographers, dance teachers, dance students, dance critics and journalists, curators, theoreticians, artists and theoreticians from diverse disciplines – visual artists, architects, scenographers, etc.
(2) Other public: audience interested in understanding contemporary choreography and contemporary arts.
