A fog of blurry realities

Key words:

In order to obscure the journey we will meander in labyrinth of circles within circles by spiralling the time. Eleonora Siarava is a choreographer, performer, researcher and artistic director of Per_Dance platform of choreographic research (www.per-dance.com). Currently, she is a PhD Candidate at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki-Department of Theatre researching The multiple meaning in Abstract Dance: The choreographic synthesis and the possibilities provided by Perception Theories. In this context she studies the work of Oskar Sclemmer, Merce Cunningham, William Forsythe, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Mette Ingvartsen et.al. Her research refers to the relationship between aesthetic forms, experiental awareness and the notion of atmosphere, the connection between cognitive principles, moving patterns and kinesthetic empathy. Eleonora was one of the participants in Incubator 2019 in the Castle Žďár nad Sázavou and shares here her vibrant memories of the castle journey.

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.

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.

Performing Community in Curves

Key words:

At the end of September 2019, SE.S.TA Centre for Choreographic Development in collaboration with Prague City Gallery presented the installation Pavillon Fuller in the form of a performance. Pavillon Fuller performs the interaction of dance, space and architecture. It investigates their relationship through a simple installation built of wood and a light rope system, which remains in the Troja Palace gardens as part of the exhibitions and as an invitation to dialogue and encounter. Pavillon Fuller references the work of Richard Buckminster Fuller, architect and the founding father of tensegrity, the principle applied in the Pavillon’s construction. What does choreographer and dancer Jordi Galí, creator of the project, have to say about Pavillon Fuller and other subjects?
