CHOREO LAB 2013 Zürich/WarsaW

- cities & dance -

The influence of an urban environment on the work of a choreographer and vice a versa.

Maria Stoklosa has been invited as an artistic coach at the CHOREOLAB - international choreography workshop. 

The project provides space for communication, development of methods and dance material as well as rehearsal and performance situations in different local contexts. It offers four choreographers and 20 dancers based in Poland and Switzerland, during two weeks the opportunity to work in two European cities: Zurich (Tanzhaus Zürich) and Warsaw (Centrum w Ruchu). The choreographers and coaches work for one week in each city with a group of 10 local dancers who can experience and share different working methods.

The choreographers and dancers are curated and coached by Maria Stoklosa and Andrea Boll (artistic director of Tanzhaus Zürich). Both partners are responsible for the organization of «Choreo-Lab Warsaw - Zurich 2013» in their house, including organizing the presentation, open discussion and evaluation at the end of the week.

Thomas Lehmen is a German dancer and choreographer, famous for his unconventional projects. This time he is making a motor ride around Europe and Asia. During the trip, he offers ‘A piece for You’ (Ein stuck fur Dich) for a single artist selected during the stopovers in each country. Each ‘piece’ will be made by direct cooperation with the artists taking part in the experiment. The ‘piece’ will be accessible for the viewers who wish to see it. In Warsaw Thomas Lehmen is meeting Maria Stokłosa. The project has been planned for three years. During this period, Lehmen will visit not only Warsaw, but also Bulgaria, India or Australia. The artist, who often uses elements of language and conceptual working methods, in his show ‘mono subjects’ presented during Cialo/Umysł (Body/Mind Festival) in 2001 had already asked the question about the difference between the audience and the performer, out of the theatrical and dance convention.

Concept: Thomas Lehmen
Performance: Thomas Lehmen and Marysia Stokłosa
Project supported by Joint Adventures, Nationales Performance Netz Kunststiftung NRW Pact Zollverein
