Labyrinth of emptiness

Key words:

Roberta Legros Štepánková, one of the artists who attended this summer Cluster Residency in the Castle in Žďár nad Sázavou was keen to talk about her research and working process together with her partner Matthieu Legros. While talking about their work, core materials, points of departures and their collaboration we were meandering around the question how to orient and navigate the body and mind in the labyrinth of emptiness.

Spiral reports from one week long juicy entropic journey in the castle

Key words:

Six artists one scientist and one architect together with three lecturers and three guides were part of this year Interdisciplinary Incubator which took place in residency Zámek Žďár and Sázavou. During the week 11th -16th of March 2018 they were all together elaborating the notion of circulation through the scope of different fields. Sharing experiences, work in progress, political and cultural loops, conventions and transgression beyond them. What stayed was a circle without center lot of pointless traces and relations on the mind maps, touched and sweaty rooms in the castle. Here are some of the testimonies from the participants who had will to take part and came to the center of Santini’s gothic-baroque land and shared their work and themselves in the loop of this ongoing spiralling.

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. Interdisciplinary Incubator: SE.S.TA Centre for Choreographic Development, 11.3-16.3.2018, Žďár nad Sázavou.
