Dances in little format: Pre-talk with caterina daniela mora jara & guests
This talk focuses on a three-week residency with workspacebrussels hosted by caterina daniela mora jara, which lead to the workshop On mother tongues, III reiteration and to the public programme Dances in little formatthat you can visit during Open Studios. Accompanied by Elodie Mugrefya, caterina and guests will put into perspective the questions addressed in both the workshop and programme, such as: What are the conflicts embodied in our practices? And how do we deal with them?
Elodie Mugrefya is part of Constant, a Brussels-based association that creates collaborative interdisciplinary situations engaging with the challenges of contemporary techno-life.
Dances in little format
For the past two years, dancer and researcher caterina daniela mora jara has been one of workspacebrussels’ resident artists. During the Open Studios she will round off her trajectory with a mini-festival in which she invites five other artists to share the stage with her. Dances in little format connects different dances and dance traditions: the somatic, the virtuoso, sound journeys, small movements. After a three-week research residency focused on Conflicted Embodiment, the six artists invite the public to become part of their process. From transoceanic trajectories to displacement and torsion in colonial legacies of dance experience: the performers put ‘dance’ into question and enjoy dancing for its own sake.
