Move!Dance!Act! - a workshop for everybody
every Tuesday from 5th of November, 19.00 until 21.00 – Ontmoetingsplek Da Costa, Kinkerstraat 42, Amsterdam
Move Dance Act is an artistic platform open to a very diverse group of people (amateurs, professionals, from different social, cultural background, age, with and without disabilities) to gather around the question “What is this body I have” and “How do I like to move”. Through a number of games and exercises around dance and theater, we will build enough trust in the group to challenge our limitations and differences, using them as a strength for creativity. We work in different contexts inside but also outside in order to look at movement and dance through different point of views: from a private and intimate action to a public and political action.
Our goal from there is to make a final project together, shared in the streets of Amsterdam. It will take the form of 4 big performative walks with different thematics (carnival, funeral, protest, march), going through the streets of Amsterdam. Each of our walk will represent a different symbol of gathering in society: Carnival, Protest, Funeral and a March.
If you are curious come and join!
For information and inscription:
The sessions will be led in English and Dutch by Alice Pons and Olivia Reschofsky, both graduated from the Theaterschool voor de kunsten in choreography and dance. Based in Amsterdam, they perform, teach and show their work in The Netherlands and Internationally. Since 2014 they are the artistic leader of Mohaproject. Moha is a familiar living element that grows everywhere, on everything in any conditions even in the most unexpected places. Using this idea as a main point of inspiration, they create performances and other artistic projects (workshop, social events, exhibition, festivals) based on the impossibilities, social and urban tensions that every places offer. It is therefor important for them to work in an inclusive way in different contexts and with different social communities.
