Movement Lab | CREATIVE LABS 2017
Creative labs are based on process work in integrated transdisciplinary artistic activities. We envisage the labs as a space to acquire new competences, to pursue artistic explorations, to gain new skills and knowledge. This project is an attempt to open up to a new model of the functioning of culture, where shared practice is often research and/or lab work.
21.08. - 25/08/2017 | 11.30-13.30 Venue: Polish Dance Theater
During the Movement Lab with Anna Konjetzky participants will undergo physical and choreographic dance training combined with research around the subject of god and gods. Research will be focused on looking for and confronting the universum's representations, relations to it and normativized social movements, gestures and states related to the confession of religion.
The laboratory is addressed to movers, dancers and choreographers at least at an intermediate level.
Leading: Anna KONJETZKY
choreographer / artist
She studied in Brussels and in Berlin: contemporary dance, bodyweather and dance based on the method of Jacques Lecoq (ÉCOLE LASSAAD – International School of Theatre). Since 2005 she has been creating performances and dance installations in which the questioning and organization of space plays a key role. Her works were shown, among others during such festivals as Spielart, Dance, Tanzwerkstatt Munchen, Unidram Potsdam, Tanztage Regensburg and Danse Balsa Marni Bruxelles (and the Abdrücke dance installation she created was invited to participate in the Tanzplattform Deutschland in 2012). In the years 2005-2008 she also worked as an assistant to choreographer Wanda Golonka in Schauspiel in Frankfurt am Main. Konjetzky is a laureate of many awards and scholarships - she received, among others (along with Germaine Acogny from Senegal) dance scholarship of the State Department in Berlin (2006) and a scholarship from the city of Munich (2011). In 2009 she won the Operare competition organized by the Contemporary Opera in Berlin. In the same year, prepared by her - for the dancer Sahra Huby - solo (Elephantengedächtnis) was considered the best German dance solo presented during the Euro-Scene festival in Leipzig. In 2014, Anna Konjetzky was awarded the Förderpreis Tanz der Landeshauptstadt München. She was also nominated for the George Tabori Preis award, and from 2012 to 2014 she participates in the Global City - Local City project as one of the fifteen European artists. Currently - thanks to the three-year financial support of the city of Munich - she works as an artist-resident at Muffathalle München.
