Where: Korzo Theater, Den Haag. The Netherlands

When: 18, 19, 20 July 2022

What is artistry? How do you apply artistry to movement? Are there methods to develop artistry?

Artistry is one of the most ambiguous subjects in dance, yet an integral part of being a performing artist. Over the span of three days, More Than Movement will conduct a series of collaborative and interdisciplinary masterclasses, lectures and Q&A’s, which will investigate the industry’s definition of what it means to be a professional Performing Artist. Acknowledging the many different views, each practitioner and lecturer will be uniquely addressing different aspects of how we can define, develop, apply and explore Artistry.

Goal:
Our goal is to create an open space for dialogue and collaborative learning. As an International Symposium, we hope to inspire an industry-wide dialogue which will continue to provide dancers with practical tools that help craft their artistic careers, and constantly maintain a strong level of creative agency.

AGENDA:
July 18,19,20. Each day will run from 9:30 to 17:30, including a 45-min lunch break.
Every day will consist of in-studio workshops, lectures and Q&A’s which revolve around the theme of artistry.
Optional and informal group bonding activities will be organized in the evenings.

Line Up:
– Workshop: Fay van Baar, dancer NDT1. Using creativity and the power of imagination to gain confidence in our individual sense of artistry.
– Workshop: Andrew Richardson, Actor & director. A dramaturgical study of what Artistry means through the exploration of intention and purpose.
