This edition choreographer Goran Turnesk presents his work on his exploration of the difference between dance and sport. Jan Klug presents work in which he tries to find answers to questions like: Do I really want to create a solo performance? Which form should it tak? And Pras Anand presents his research on the creation of new services for 21st century citizens.
Goran Turnsek – I Forgive You
Goran is an independent choreographer and dancer. He studied theater dance in The Theaterschool Amsterdam and communication and design management in INHOLLAND, Rotterdam. He was a member of Rogie&Company for three years and dance group Krisztina de Châtel for 4 years. As a dancer he is currently collaborating with Giulia Mureddu. In I Forgive You, Goran explores the difference between dance and sport. The beauty of movement in sport can be so presented that it can result in dance instead. Goran will present a competition without a final result within a sportive dance.
Jan Klug – Boiling Down
Jan is a composer and media designer with extensive experience in the use of computers and programming as creative tools for the creation of music performances and live video. Jan has developed a particular interest in the possibilities of creative computer programming and as a composer and media designer, he has worked on several projects in dance, theater and film. During the past few years, he has planned to combine his past collaborative projects into a solo performance. In ‘Boiling Down’ he will try to find answers to questions like: Do I really want to create a solo performance? Which form should it take? And do I have enough arms for this?
