10.00 - 12.00 hrs € 10,-
For this workshop Vera Tussing will give several short insights into her choreographic practice on tactility, consent and collectivity. She will invite the participants both to explore physically as well as engage in discussions. All explorations will be done in accordance with the current safety guidance.
28/11 Workshop Creative when Limited by Astrit Ismaili.
10.00 - 16.00 hrs € 15,-
Note: the dates has changed. From 28 & 29/11 to 28/11 only. The price changed as well to € 15,-. ‘Creative when Limited’ is a two days workshop that focuses on the possible becoming states that the body can achieve within restrictive situations. Adding restrictions to the body will directly affect the movement, but will also extend the possibilities to explore new ways of interacting with the space and the other parts of their body that aren’t limited. The limitation will be the starting point of the workshop, but the main focus will be invested in the freedom that you can find within limitation. The workshop is part of Astrits recent performance project ‘MISS’ which deals with the same topic. An important element of the project is reflecting on particular historical events that directly relate with the notion of the workshop.

You are very much welcome at the closing presentation of BAU AIR². Choreographer Vera Tussing and performance artist Astrit Ismaili dedicated the past few weeks to research, experiment and in-depth conversations. For a month they worked in the studios of BAU on the further development of their current project. Astrit researched the functioning of a new wearable instrument for part two of his opera MISS and Vera delved deeper into the meaning of touch and closeness in (dance) performances for her upcoming book. In the final presentation they show their work with film, part of a performance, a manifesto and an interactive reading of some research texts.
Astrit is accompanied by sound designer Michele Abolaffio and filmmaker Ana Plowden. Vera is supported by many of her colleagues at distance including Elvira Crois, Yoh Morishita, Ben McEwen, Michael Picknett, JS Rafaeli and Julia Rubies Subiro. Afterwards, a substantive discussion takes place under the guidance of Charmy Rose.
