Title: ‘Digital Dance’
Point – Space
Material – intangible
Alone – Team

What do we define as digital dance?
How is digital movement translated in the physical body?
How does the human body understand it outside a screen?

Triggered by the above differences, and looking for their meeting points, we will focus on how can this subject matter of the digital imagery can produce movement material.

We will study ‘digital motion’ and how this can become a three dimensional body, without the technological means, involving the physical body and its power and beauty only.

Exploring individual movement researching, volumes, speeds and letting them lead into unknown grounds, finding our connections or disconnections with the space and with each other, not necessarily in physical contact.

We will also work closely with music and sound, and how this can create a common word of communication.

Due to the ‘building together’ nature of the workshop, total availability is required.
