OPEN CALL: COACHING RESIDENCIES FOR CHOREOGRAPHERS 2018

Jean Gaudin (FR), Tomeo Verges (ES), Jean-Christophe Paré (FR)

Date of event23th – 31st August 2018 |  Place of eventPrague

International choreographic residencies under the guidance of experienced and world-renowned coaches. We are currently accepting applications for the eleventh year.

About the project

Choreographers come to the residencies with their own projects, which they want to develop during the stay in cooperation with an experienced artist (coach). The goal of the residence is not the formation of the dancers, nor the aesthetic aspect of the expression, but gaining new points of view on their own creative work, space and the possibility to deepen their individual elements or to seek new ways of expressing the artistic intention. The whole residence has the form of a dialogue of choreographers and coaches who direct them.

The participating choreographers use as material for work within the residential projects they currently work on. The coaches will see the original material on a previously sent video so that they can get to understand the choreographers’ inner worlds and their ways of perception. During the residence, participants analyze individual elements of choreographies and define their content. In co-operation with their coaches they again identify the important things and new directions for development.

The residence takes ten days and, apart from the intensive coaching of the choreographers, it also includes lecture after-hours and final work in progress, presentations of the working process in the residence to the public. The goal from Work in progress is not to present a final product or an individual choreography, but a stage of the creative process.

You can read more about the tenth year of the Residency in the enclosed summary.

Artistic coaching during residential workshops brings participants a shift in thinking about artistic creation and its process.
