Kinitiras, Community Dance Residency

Kinitiras, Community Dance Residency



Flux Laboratory Athens partners with Kinitiras Artistic Network for Performing Arts
16.11-19.12.2020

Flux Laboratory Athens happily supports the Community Dance Residency with the theme ‘Transition’. Focusing on the exchange between Africa and Europe, the Residency program was initially scheduled to take place in April 2020 as part of the In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF2020). This November, it comes renewed featuring creative proposals to meet the challenges we all experience worldwide. Blaise Mangitukulu from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Emilie Vaudou from France, Patricia Woltmann from Germany and Marilena Sitaropoulou from Greece will collaborate remotely, digitally and spatially. In Athens, Berlin, London, Bukavu and Paris, communication channels will be opened with the local and international communities. The discussion will evolve around the Body and the ways different communities experience and express the notion of transition through community dance pieces. The works produced will be presented firstly in the locations where artists are based and online in November. The process, the findings, the questions that may arise, the predicaments, as well as the new proposals will be presented in December in Athens and virtually. 

Transition I Enter Communities of Body Residency is a collaboration of Kinitiras Artistic Network for Performing Arts with the Goethe-Institut Athen, the French Institute of Greece with Flux Laboratory Athens and it is realized with the kind support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund. The first part of IPFF2020 regarding the residency is realized with the kind support of J. F. Costopoulos Foundation.
