The first ‘Facilitated OPENLAB’ of 2019 will be:
Moveo Ergo Sum
with Antonio de la Fe.
This session will take place on Friday 25 January, 10 am-1 pm at Chisenhale Dance Space’s Research Studio.
Moving is a kind of thinking and thinking is a kind of moving. They both happen in different combinations of simultaneity and quasi-simultaneity, combinations of sequentiality and possibly, even in instances of isolation. Always intertwined but with different patterns and yet always expressions of enactive ways of being and being present.
Antonio de la Fe will bring to the room their long-lasting interest in the performing state while dancing as an action of presence and some of the strategies they’ve been using for the last couple of years to achieve and work on this.
You can expect moving, being still, thinking, talking, writing and in different orders and combinations in time and space.
OPENLAB sessions are open to any performers: dancers, musicians, actors and anyone interested in presence and awareness in performance.
The facilitators of OPENLAB are also participants “in” the session and participants can propose their ideas for a future session. If you’d like to know more about this, come to one of our sessions or email Antonio de la Fe.
The OPENLAB sessions alternate between ‘White Canvas’ and ‘Facilated OL’ sessions. You can see the full programme for the Spring Term 2019 here.
The sessions function on a pay-what-you-can contribution basis to cover expenses and as an incentive for the facilitator of the session. We suggest a contribution of £7 for the 3-hour long sessions (‘Facilitated OL’ sessions) and of £5 for the 2-hour long ones (‘White Canvas’). Cash only.
