The playing body by Scott Jennings

8/12/2023 – 10/12/2023

Η χρονιά 2023 για τα intensive workshops του studio Choroskinisirythmos δεν θα μπορούσε να κλείσει πιο όμορφα.
Μια νέα συνεργασία, ένας καταπληκτικός καλλιτέχνης που θα έχουμε την χαρά να γνωρίσουμε την δουλειά του, ένα απίθανο εντατικό τριήμερο.
@Scott Jennings -γνωστός από τις συνεργασίες του με Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson, Dimitris Papaioannou, Robert Wilson, Alexandra Waierstall, Maxine Doyle και πολλούς ακόμα.

The playing body

Inspired by a range of forms and practices, the bulk of my work is rooted somewhere between dance and theatre. I am to inspire creativity through noticing, questioning, acting and reacting. I believe that dance and theatre really become whole when exploring what it means to be human. I often use games, tasks, scenarios and improvisations to access and enhance the way we communicate and understand each other. I try to bring the mundane, or the everyday gesture, into conversation with the dramatic and the abstract. I hope to bring a sense of child-like fascination, sensitivity and possibility to the world around us.
All workshops are lead with a clear structure but I am heavily inspired by those who are sharing the space with me.
