DANCE DRAMATURGY - Workshop with FREYA VASS-RHEE

“Did you ever observe to whom the accidents happen? In the field of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind,” said Louis Pasteur. Like empirical research, dramaturgical thinking arises from linear processes of reasoning but also from welcoming and working with the unexpected, the uninvited, and the inexplicably intriguing. In this workshop, we will cultivate the skills of observation and association, extrapolation and emergent interpretation, and direct and oblique research and suggestion. In doing so, we will be exploring the ways in which the mind can be prepared for, and productively evaluate and learn from, the valued accidents of devised dance dramaturgy.

The WILLIAM FORSYTHE Conversation, November 20, 16.00-19.00, is part of the workshop program. 

FREYA VASS-RHEE, dramaturg

Freya Vass-Rhee is a Lecturer in Drama and Theatre at the University of Kent. Her primary research interests are in cognitive dance studies, visuo-sonority in dance, dance dramaturgy, performativity, and arts-sciences interdisciplinarity. As a dramaturg, she has collaborated with choreographer William Forsythe on over a dozen works (2006-2013), as well as freelancing with other choreographers including David Dawson. A participant in the interdisciplinary Dance Engaging Science Workgroup under the auspices of The Forsythe Company's Motion Bank project, Vass-Rhee is currently collaborating with cognitive scientists on experimental dance research designs.


NB! The workshop is in connection with the Conversation about Performing Arts with William Forsythe and the Exhibition Forsythe – in Company with Others at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Clik her for more info.
