Word Lab | Creative Labs 2017


Creative labs are based on process work in integrated transdisciplinary artistic activities. We imagine 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.

Word Lab


14.08 - 18.08.2017 I 10.00 - 15.00 I Place: Centrum Konferencyjne - Młyńska 12

21.08 - 25.08.2017 I 16.30- 21.30 I Place: Polish Dance Theater (Ballet School in Poznań, room No. 6)


The Word Lab is a two-week series of classes focused around the practice of writing and recognizing the space of contemporary dance.

The first part of meetings leaded by Anna Królica will include an introduction to dance knowledge, a panorama of the Polish scenic landscape and the profiles of leading artists. Discussing dance reconstructions by re-mixes, we will learn about different strategies for choreographic practice.

An important part of the meetings will be the analysis of selected video recordings of dance performances, writing about them and looking for the right texts, expanding the interpretation possibilities.

The second week of Word Lab leaded by Mateusz Szymanówka will be devoted to empathy in practice. On the example of several performances by Polish choreographers the participants will discuss about the essence of dance dramaturgy and the role of the playwright's participation in creating works without the use of text. In addition, the program includes instant writing and the use of feedback methods for writing about dance and performance.
