PHYSICAL DRAMATURGY #4 LOVE & AFFECTION // JANUARY 27 – 28 I 2018 // tanzhaus nrw Düsseldorf

The annual symposium for creatives and students from related practical and theoretical branches of study pursues the idea that reflection on and in dance always carries roots in practical physicality – and that theory and practice have always gone hand in hand.
In Lectures, performances and workshops during this fourth edition of Physical Dramaturgy, titled “Love & Affection”, choreographer Yasmeen Godder among others, is delving into the quest for the space taken up by the concept of “affective labour” in the arts. At the same time, the question how the arts can offer an exemplary field of negotiation for current social tendencies, is up for discussion.

WORKSHOP 1 Yasmeen Godder
In her workshop Yasmeen Godder will share some of the practices and ways of working which led her to her latest creations Simple Action and Common Emotions. Starting the process from a personal need or impulse the participants will develop and perform different actions and play within them in different contexts, looking at their potential therapeutic, performative and choreographic possibilities.

WORKSHOP 2 Sabine Cmelniski
Sabine will share her project „Friends with benefits“ in the workshop. It is a research that took/takes and will, seemingly, take different forms of life. The basic and recurrent movement is to collect a multiplicity of connected works, practices and researches and transform them into an elastic web of affects in flow.It is weaving the threads of crossed artistic processes, absorbing the intersections and developing what may appear at those meeting points.
It is curating affinities, practicing professional friendship and choreographing the intersubjectivity’s dance.
