1 nov: DCIntro

1 november kl 18.30-20.30

DCIntro ska verka som en utforskande plattform för dansområdet där dansare och koreografer har möjlighet att testa idéer, få feedback på sitt arbete, knyta kontakter med andra verksamma aktörer och även möta potentiella arbetsgivare och medarbetare. DCIntro erbjuder en öppen mötes- och visningsplats för branschens verksamma och medlemmarnas konstnärliga behov som inte grundas på ett konstnärligt urval eller fast format. DCIntro skapas och utformas av de medverkande och det som presenteras! DCIntro äger rum i Danscentrum Stockholms stora studio på Jungfrugatan 7b.

DCIntro – ett mycket uppskattat evenemang bland både medverkande och besökare. Fokus ligger på feedback och ett samtal mellan utförare och betraktare modereras av Anna Grip efter visningen av kvällens koreografier eller idéerna till koreografiska verk som presenterats.

Kvällens program:

1. Tiny Dances
Work-in-progress (approx 12-15 minutes)
Performed, filmed and edited by Janessa Clark
info@janessaclark.com

Tiny Dances, 100 of them. Taken from the point of view of the voyeur, Tiny Dances provide a lens into the private and the personal, a sort of one-to-one performance based on a remote intimacy.  These mini video-dances activate secrets and confessions sent in the form of anonymous letters from all over the world, creating physical archival existences for intercepted transmissions. Contemplating what we traces we leave behind when we depart, this project investigates both ephemerality and immortality. I’ll tell your secrets, but only because you give me permission.

For DC Intro 10 and 20  Tiny Dances will be presented in order to start to understand how these dance videos can impact a spectator. Is it important that they know that the movement comes from people’s secrets? Is it distracting or limiting to have recognizable music in them or is there more impact in hearing the letters’ contents read during the videos? Does the choice of using small confined spaces translate to the spectator as a metaphor for our inner personal space, the chambers we hold our secrets in?  The Tiny Dances can be shown in several formats (playing simultaneously, playing on separate screens, posting the actual letter next to the Tiny Dance that is created) that will be explored.

2. Darvish Dance (Mavlevia)
Work-in-progress (approx 10 min)

A poetic physical performance, based on Jalaluddin Rumi book The Masnavi, and his poet. This project still in the research process. This research physically about Mevlevia (Darvish) Sufi dance, Jalaluddin Rumi, the founder of the Mevlevi order in the thirteenth century says ‘’The dancing dervishes represent the solar system and the planets that revolve around the sun. At the same time that they are immersed in their own microcosmos, they create new worlds and make contact with eternity.’’ Throw the whirling spiritual dance (Mavlevia) or Sema, arabic word means ‘hearing deeply, Rumi has institutionalized an ecstatic dance as part of the education of the disciples to forget the present and become united with the lover in infinity.

In this research I will dive into this smallest movement throw the (power dance), whirling movements, based on the technic of (Mevlevia), in attempt to own and sympathize with idea of connecting to the solar system movements, in a meditational term, eventually will allow the additional of new physical details and create and develop new type of dancing movements. using the body in responding to the soul by just thinking, ‘’by doing the power dance on your own affect the world!’’

Work-in-progress (approx 10 min)

The nature of pattern är ett nytt arbete som kretsar omkring idén att hela vårt liv består av olika mönster – mönster av rörelser, färger, former, ljud, känslor, vanor, tankar, kroppar etc etc.. sprungen ur en kurs som pågått under hösten ”The Life of Objects” ett samarbete med dharmaläraren Rachel Fuller aka Vajradharsini.

På DCIntro kommer en alldeles ny idé som har kläckts att ta form och testas, video + en kroppskör som möts för första gången den 1 november när idén ska testas + danscentrums stora studio.

Pattern as a transmitter of beauty.

We can never see nature as more beautiful than a beautiful pattern. If we see nature as beautiful, then we are, in a sense, seeing it in patterns. Pattern is the crystallization of beauty. To understand beauty and to understand pattern are aspects of the same thing.

…it is pattern that first puts us in touch with the beauty of things; it is the transmitter of beauty. Trough pattern we learn howe to look at nature. Without pattern, man´s view of nature world be far more vague and equivocal than it is. Pattern contains the nature of nature.

Beauty is the transformation of the world into pattern.

6. Kiran
Work-in-progress (approx 10 min)
We:R Performance Collective/Choreographers: Rebecca Björling (SE), Rebecca Rosier (UK)
Performed by Rebecca Rosier

Kiran is an excerpt from Love Too Much, a stage work currently under construction, based on true stories of female experience, as told through interviews with people around the world. This particular piece is centered around an interview with Kiran Gandhi – a touring musician, Harvard graduate and feminist activist. The interview focuses around her memorable marathon run, in which she bled freely during her period, both for her own comfort, and as an act of protest against menstrual stigma.

The work is designed to be slow and meditative – focused, steady and strong – the same qualities required for running a marathon, say, or undertaking an act of radical feminist activism.

Earlier this year the International Studio Grant Stockholm was handed to the We:R Performance Collective giving us access to the studio in Iaspis for a two week period (25/09-08/10). During these two weeks, we worked on our production Love Too Much, a dance-theatre work that explores the female experience using contemporary dance and verbatim theatre techniques. The piece that we are showing was created during this period.
