We will be sharing our research and practices through a workshop for movers and musicians and a performance on Saturday 21st of July in the URBAN festival in the Kreativquartier. Experience and discover a catastroflixic blend of contemporary dance and music!
*** Workshop: “Playing in new worlds” ***
A dance and music improvisation workshops based on contemporary worlds.
Saturday 21st of July, from 4 to 6pm.
Only 10€ per participant.
Registration at firstname.lastname@example.org
Open to all : movers, dancers, sounders, musicians of all levels and ability.
The Catastroflux collective invites movers and sounders to join them in an improvisation workshop exploring worlds they created for their piece “Absurd Journey”. Floriane Dardard will lead musicians into musical landscapes while Lucile Belliveau facilitates a corporal exploration of situations and emotional states. We will use the power of imagination to free ourselves and find new ways of playing instruments and of moving. We will be together in the present and rejoice in this opportunity for expression, letting go and togetherness.
*** Performance: “Absurd Journey” ***
An atmospheric and immersive contemporary performance exploring absurdity and harmony through dance and music.
Saturday 21st of June, at 8pm.
In “Absurd Journey”, we explore though dance and music our perception of the world as an absurd space, which does not follow rational or logical rules. We go on an external journey through the world and an internal journey through ourselves. We travel from one place to the same place, yet our awareness is increased. At the end of the journey, the absurdity is still there but instead of letting it overwhelm us our better self-awareness allows us to find meaning and to create human connections with ourselves and with others.
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.” ― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
Two performers create experimental music and dance in the moment, and guide you through different worlds of their own.
