Wednesday 10 April, 19:00
Lecture: A communist island and a universal being

In this lecture, Judith Sanchez will share her journey, from leaving a communist island in early 1990 to moving to New York in late 1999, relocating to Berlin in a time of chaos on immigration and global popularity.

Friday 12 April, 19:00
Performance: “Encaje” and “Indefinite unfolding”

“Encaje” is a piece about hypocrisy, inspired by the body of work of writer Anaïs Nin, that focus on two concepts: the ‘diary’ and the ‘radio’. Just as the novelist describes her life as ‘indescribable’ – as it changes every day, being her prone to different moods and unable to fully fathom her true self – Judith recaptures the snapshot contents of an archive of her own days approaching dance like a ‘diary of movement’.

“Indefinite unfolding” is an improvisation performance with Judith Sanchez and live music by Henrik Olsson. On their joint search for correspondence, music and dance develop ideas, motives, each of them suggesting to the other in a state of indefinite listening and alertness. An abstract communication, as the undercurrent of a conversation, that becomes apparent through the gradual unfolding of intermittent silences: the taking time to take-in.

TOWARDS

TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that include physical praxis, evening lectures, video screenings and live performances. It’s the metaphor of aiming at something — to expose and engage ourselves in physical investigations and conceptual challenges that can foster creativity and encourage discoveries. TOWARDS sees pedagogy as a continuous intellectual provocation, an occasion for inspiration through paradoxes and awakenings and as a desire to overturn common sense and question what we have learned.

TOWARDS offers the occasion to explore the work of renowned international artists, gaining an insight into their practice and methodologies as well the philosophical and poetic worlds that trigger their creative research.

The project started in August 2018 with Julyen Hamilton’s workshop: Making Dances – Compositional and Poetic Richness.

In 2019, the workshops will be organised in three blocks of two weeks. Each week will include:
– a lecture for sharing theoretical reflections
– evening video screenings
– a final performative event
