“When you watch performances of Farm in the Cave, you don’t know whether you experience dance, theater, or concert. But one thing is clear - this is contemporary performing art” /Assen Assenov, Director of One Dance Week International Festival/
Farm in the Cave studio is known for its specific method of working with a performer. That is characteristic for personal engagement, immersion in the subject, musicality and high dynamics. The company has become a platform for intense professional development for exceptional dancers, actors, musicians and performers from many countries. Ensemble developed its unique practises of working with expression of the contemporary performer, which transcends the borders between the art of movement, music, and acting.
In each of their long-term projects members of Farm in the Cave focused on researching current social issues and searched for different ways of how to embody them on stage. However, working with the physical score still remains the pivotal point of individual creative process.
The workshop will introduce participants to various ways of creating the physical score. We will focus on the relationship between the inner structure and the outer composition of action - between rhythm and meaning, as well as between living presence and precise fixing of elements. It will inspire participants in their daily practice, thus leading them from training to creation. It will also strive to offer an individual approach with respect to the momentary dispositions of each participant.
The workshop will be led by ensemble's artistic director and choreographer Viliam Dočolomanský, as well as members of Farm in the Cave, Hana Varadzinová and Eliška Vavříková, who have led numerous workshops both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
The workshop is open to students, and professionals of different performing arts, as well as any interested participants without previous professional experience. If overbooked, participants will be selected according to their motivation letters and CV/resume.
Workshop is part of the a new project of Farm in the Cave, Online Hero, supported by EEA Grants, the Ministery of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Magistrate of the Capital City of Prague.
