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.
