A Reflection on Discussions at the Choreographic Forum, Czech Dance Platform 2018

Key words:

Marie Kinsky, who organised, moderated and created the concept of the Choreographic Forum held during CDP, stated that the aim of the forum was not to critically evaluate performances, but to take them as reference points to better understand how we work as artists and how we communicate with the spectator. In other words, what tools do today’s artists use to express themselves and communicate with spectators, why are these the tools in use and via what means does communication take place?

Thoughts on the Theme of Circulation

Key words:

It’s obvious that the Centre for Choreographic Development is about creative, rather than presentation, strategies. It has long concerned itself with creativity and the process of artistic creation, without emphasis on a performance or a resulting product. The aim thus becomes creative process itself, which can be used in the longer-term development of the artist’s work. SE.S.TA is aware that phenomenon of innovation is the result of investment in the individual and has long brought this neoliberal idea, which is part of the cultural and educational policies of all developed countries, to the Czech dance environment.

Zatanči mi katedrálu… …a postav mi tanec

Key words:

Na úplném začátku, kdy jsem vstoupil na, pro mě málo známou taneční palubu tohoto workshopu, jsme vymýšleli různé konstrukce a paralely mezi architekturou, prostorem a tancem. Vznikly při tom dvě krásné cesty vzájemné konfrontace těchto dvou disciplín. Jedna směřovala od architektury zaznamenané ve formě plánů a výkresů do tanečního, respektive tancem vyjádřeného prostoru a druhá šla opačným směrem, kdy jsme vytvářeli základní taneční typologii pomocí grafického záznamu primárních tanečních prvků, ze kterých se následně stavěly „architektonické“ kompozice.

Hapticality or Love

Key words:

How do we care for each other in these times of pandemic isolations? When the borders and social distancing are locking us in our own bodies forced to be detached in the small bordered units prohibiting us to meet the other. Hapticality is denied by the only contact we have through screens. We need to touch, to feel the other and through the other. In their book Undercommons  Fred Moten and Stefano Harney draw on the theory and practice of the black radical tradition as it supports, inspires, and extends contemporary social and political thought and aesthetic critique. Or as Denise Ferreira da Silva writes : "In this intimate and intense example of affected writing—writing which is always already other, with an other—Harney and Moten dare us to fall." Rereading Undercommons in isolation is to recall the hapticallity within the other.

Měnit úhel pohledu: Koučink a Choreografické fórum

Key words:

Kouč je partner. Partner, který klade otevřené otázky. Nenabízí odpovědi. Žádné rady. Setkává se s klientem / partnerem / v konkrétním případě s choreografem v bezpečném prostředí – jsou spolu tady a teď, vedou partnerský rozhovor ve sdíleném prostoru a čase. Kouč se napojuje na partnerův svět. Témata, kterým se spolu s koučem věnuje, jsou choreografky / choreografa. Kouč je expert na otázky a koučovací proces, nikoliv nutně na choreografii. Kouč podporuje partnera v rozvíjení partnerova záměru, ve formulaci partnerových cílů, v odkrývání partnerovy síly, talentu a potenciálu ve vztahu k záměrům a cílům, v rozšiřování možností a objevování možností dosud skrytých, v tom, aby možnost proměnil ve skutečnou akci.

Prostor a cirkulace pro pedagožky

Key words:

Únorová taneční pedagogická dílna (seminář) Centra choreografického rozvoje Se.S.Ta. se věnovala Prostoru a cirkulaci v něm. Svedla dohromady začínající i zkušené učitelky tance ze Základních uměleckých škol i tanečnice a choreografky – aspirantky pedagogické praxe, s francouzskou tanečnicí a pedagožkou tance Sophie Billy, tanečnicí, choreografkou a pedagožkou Mirkou Eliášovou, architektkou Dorotou Kluskou a s koučkou – tedy se mnou samotnou. Mezioborovost a mnohost zkušeností a přístupů k tématu tak byly podhoubím společně strávených dnů. Hlavními tématy byly tanec, pedagogika, prostor, cirkulace. Prostor a cirkulace z hlediska tance a jeho výuky i z hlediska architektury a koučování.

Kulatý stůl Škola tančí – KoresponDance, 9. 7. 2016

Key words:

V roce 2016 se projekt Škola tančí konal ve čtyřech základních školách ve Žďáru nad Sázavou, a to vždy formou krátkodobé spolupráce. S dětmi tak pracovaly čtyři páry složené vždy z jednoho choreografa / choreografky (Zdenka Brungot Svíteková, Jan Bárta, Barbora Látalová, Jana Bitterová) a jedné učitelky. Kombinovali umělecký a pedagogický způsob práce s dětmi. Základním rámcem projektu totiž je snaha propojit konkrétní školní předmět nebo vybrané téma, které ve třídě rezonuje, s pohybem a tancem, otevřít ho pro děti jiným způsobem, a to skrze kreativní proces.
