St. Margarethen/Burgenland, Austria, 27 August – 2 September 2012
As a new transdisciplinary artistic field of work in nature, the International ChoreoLab Austria (ICLA) combines performative training, lecture, demonstration and discussion with experts from the fields of choreography/dance, body-mind techniques, architecture, land art and botany. Performers and interested protagonists from other fields are invited to the collective unfolding of creative potential in a communicative forum taking place at the art and nature sanctuary of St. Margarethen.
As “dance of things”, LAND.body.scape_corpography mediates between the internal and external bodily spaces and provides a redefinition of modalities, investigating the living environment through the body. Corpography implies a critical process of reflection and inquiry into anthropological and socio-cultural transformations of both the individual and society. At the same time it provokes wide-ranging questions about body and environment as a complex system in constant evolution.
After a three-year successful cooperation with Danube University Krems, the International ChoreoLab Austria (ICLA), initiated by choreographer Sebastian Prantl and pianist Cecilia Li (directors of Tanz Atelier Wien) in 2009, is taking place this year in conjunction with the Symposion of European Sculptors at their headquarters in Austria. The focus of the ICLA is to foster an interdisciplinary discourse on an expanded concept of choreography, linking theoretical excursions and contextual performativity.
The participation fee amounts to EUR 500 (incl. breakfast + dinner). Due to this special community format, participants are invited to camp with their own tents on the grounds around the sculptor's house free of charge.
