The Spring Lab – Last edition of CHOREOLAB.EU of this season – took place in Berlin between 26 May and June 1st.
The third lab of the season was inspirational for everyone. The participants where challenged and challenging; and the peer to peer setting we aimed for in the first place became a fact: the channels of communication were guided and organized to avoid falling in endless discussions, but nonetheless there was space for everyone to take the lead and share their interests and the questions they were facing in their present day and time.
Actually, one of the great rewards of this lab was receiving the overall feedback that a couple of days more would have been ideal to deepen into the questions and experiences lived during the sessions!
The guided labs brought us in touch with many a different concept:
Next to the labs, the pedagogical sessions and playgrounds opened up space for debates and exchange amongst participants and choreographers alike: Everyone could share his or her question and each of us had something to offer as well. Teams were organized, and off we went. Even though time was of the essence and we had the feeling of it not being enough, several topics where addressed: different methodologies and approaches to solo and group work, different ways to communicate with a group of dancers as a dance makers, how to compose a piece based on a very personal and intimate memory and emotion, and have the essence of it still remain in the final work without falling in the obvious, etc.
The overall feeling was of success, we as organizers are happy with the feedback we received and look forward to the set up of the next season!
