fall lab 2017 - basel
in october 2017 choreolab europe organizes a 4-day spring lab in basel, where advanced and professional dancers, movers, dancing choreographers and dance students can participate.
in this lab choreolab europe collaborates with guest choreographers lillian stillwell, pablo sansalvador, sandra kramerová and the dance collective bufo makmal. the artistic team of choreolab europe (sanne clifford, anja gallagher and jordi ribot thunnissen) will be part of the labs, playgrounds and lectures as well.
this team of choreographers & collaborators will share insights and their artistic research approaches on their selected topics.
lillian stillwell (lab)
explorations on how dance and music can be integrated to communicate content with a multi-disciplinary approach. the music of mozart will be the basis for the movement material, which will then be exploited for its story-telling potential. together with invited guest collaborators tom ryser (director) and martin o. (singer).
pablo sansalvador (lab)
on how specific human qualities of the seven virtues and deadly sins can be represented through movement and detailed body language. "we will create a melting pot that uses choreographic and design thinking techniques and methodologies to initiate the creative process"
sandra kramerova (lab)
her research includes exploration of athletics, resistance-based movement quality and stamina-driven action. a dance language influenced by sports imagery will shape itself into choreographic scores according to the participants´creative visions and artistic perspectives.
Bufo Makmal (workshop)
held by rosie terry toogood and margarita kennedy. "we will welcome the participants to allow there own way of movement to flow. we will share possibilities how to access this, to enhance it and to feel more self power in the own physicality."

what participants say about the labs:
read this blog by Ruby to get a vast experience overview of the fall lab in basel 2017.
choreolab was a good chance for getting out of my comfort zone while getting to know other professionals and artists. I enjoyed the atmosphere and appreciate very much the tools and techniques learnt. I also experienced the chance to try out some experiments in the playground, which opened new territories of research. looking forward to the next one.

I am very grateful for participating in choreolab. it was really for me a 'revitalizing' experience in many aspects. I am 100% positive about it.

choreolab is a safe space to begin your choreographic explorations. to share thoughts and knowledge and to play with choreography with different types of movers.
