Choreographic laboratory 2017

A project by RESO – Dance network Switzerland in Cooperation with Kaserne Basel and ROXY Birsfelden.

During 10 days some 20 artists will take over the Kaserne Basel and the ROXY Birsfelden. This choreographic laboratory is, in essence, an invitation to share ideas and artistic practices, and to  discuss, reflect and experiment, free from the pressure of delivering results and with no restrictions or expectations as regards the mode of production.

Informations & Registration
A choreographic laboratory is a given moment in time. A moment when artists have the opportunity to meet and work together in a welcoming environment. It acts as a «safe» structure, offering participants the opportunity and space for action, try-outs, reflection and exchange. The philosophy of the 2017 Choreo Lab is taking the time to develop and realise ideas by learning from the experiences of others and drawing on their support. Encouraged by a team of artists who have literally devoted their lives to honing their  craft  and creating their own artistic  reality, participants  will  discover tools to  scale  creative  heights  and  explore  new  and  challenging  professional avenues. With  laser-beam  sharpness,  the  2017  ChoreoLab will  delve  into  the  multifaceted world  of  movement  and  choreographic  writing. For  the  participants,  the  10-day laboratory  will  be  an  energising  and  rewarding  period  of  collaboration,  sharing  and togetherness.
