TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that besides the physical praxis, includes evening lectures, video screenings, and performances. It’s the metaphor of aiming at something – to expose and engage ourselves in physical investigations and conceptual challenges that can foster creativity and encourage discoveries.

Where: Vitlycke – Center for Performing Arts, Tanumshede, Sweden

When: April / May / June / August / September (2019)

TOWARDS see pedagogy as a continuous intellectual provocation, an occasion for inspiration through paradoxes and awakenings and as a desire to overturn common sense and question what we have learned.

TOWARDS offers the occasion to explore the work of renowned international artists, gaining an insight into their practice and methodologies as well the philosophical and poetic worlds that trigger their creative research.
The project started in August 2018 with Julyen Hamilton’s workshop, ‘Making Dances – compositional and poetic richness’.
In 2019, the workshops will be organized in three blocks of two weeks. Each week will include:
– a lecture for sharing theoretical reflections
– evening video screenings
– a final performative event

TOWARDS is curated by Francesco Scavetta and organized by Vitlycke – Centre for Performing Arts, in collaboration with Sekoia – Artes Performativas.
