TRAINING AND TRANSMISSION OF CREATIVE PRACTICES

 Farm in the Cave

Farm in the cave worked with the project participants both in the rehearsal room of DOX Centre for Contemporary Art and the distinctive space of the Lucerna Palace.

 
 

Norwegian partner of the project: Roosna & Flak

Responsive body in a responsive space and with responsive sound. That is how one could capture the choreographic, dance, and research practise of the duo Roosna & Flak. Külli Roosna (EST/NOR) and Kenneth Flak (NOR) combine movement and digital technology in order to explore the human experience across layers of interconnected realities. For this purpose, Roosna & Flak developed MiniBee movement sensors that give performers the possibility to influence sound and light in real time.

 

The originally planned part of the project was Roosna & Flak’s workshop with project participants. Due to the pandemic situation, the workshop could not happen live in Prague, but the communication took place online. For the purpose of this project, Roosna & Flak created videos that can be watched here:
