Somatic Performance Lab



Sponsored by the BLZT (Bavarian State Association for Contemporary Dance) and the Cultural Office Fürth, it will take place for the second time at the Kulturforum Fürth, this time from April 12-16.

The Lab enables research of a university nature that is not related to studies. Actors from the field of performing and visual arts are invited to come into contact together over five days on the topic of "Form and Freedom". Experts from the fields of body-mind centering, contemporary dance, imagination of dreams and atmospheric composition feed specific expertise (with: Dr. Christian Meier, Anna Nowicka, David Bloom, Barbara Bess). In dialogue, this evolves into a collaborative final public performance over the course of the Lab.

The special location - the large columned hall of the Kulturforum Fürth - serves as a limited space within the infinity of the universe. A magical space in which the artistic process becomes visible and shareable. Also a free space for exchange and enjoyable togetherness of artists and guests.

The Lab is aimed at performers, visual artists, dancers who are interested in an intensive and professional exploration of the body in movement as an instrument.
