WORKSHOP WITH PEEPING TOM
MONDAY, 26th of August
Kl. 1O.OO – 13.OO
Venue: STARS, Algade 84, Vordingborg
Teacher is Brandon Lagaert.
In collaboration with Waves Festival 2019 we offer this unique chance to work with one of the dancers from the international renowned dance/theatre company Peeping Tom. The equilibristic and creative dancers are admired for their original technique and the strong images they create in the hyper realistic universes of the performances.
In this workshop you get the opportunity to immerse yourself in the work of Peeping Tom as well as discover the particular techniques used by Peeping Tom performers. In addition, participants will learn about Peeping Tom’s particular (hyperrealistic) aesthetics. The choreographers depict a universe in which the prevailing logic of time, space and atmosphere is questioned, always with a strong focus on the dark side of the individual and the community.
The workshop is targeted semiprofessional and professional dancers and is on a high level.
Artist talk: THE ARTISTIC UNIVERSE OF... PEEPING TOM
14.OO – 15.OO
Moderated by national theatre critic Monna Dithmer.
The artist talk aims at going in depth with the vision and creation method of Peeping Tom and especially the performance Kind (Child). Kind is the third part of a family trilogy succeeding Vader (father) from 2014 and Moeder (Mother) from 2016.
The basis for Kind is the perspective of the child and children’s internal and external world. The choreographers investigate how a child’s perspective changes as it grows and develops itself on its way to adolescence and adulthood, with all the associated choices, pressures, fears, doubts and physical changes, and how this translates into gestures and body language.
The two performances included in the all-day experience is, of course, Kind by Peeping Tom and The Time Being 2.O by Cantabile 2 – the organizer of Waves Festival since 1987. Both are part of the Waves Festival Programme.
