OPEN FLR 2017
Christopher Evans, Shumpei Nemoto, Sebastien Perrault, Dorotea Saykaly
OpenFLR 2017 is an intensive dance lab in which three internationally acclaimed choreographers (Christopher Evans, Shumpei Nemoto and Sebastien Perrault) and an emerging talent (*update 15th March 2017: OpenFLR Young Talent is Dorotea Saykaly) will work with recent graduates and professional dancers for two weeks. It will take place in Florence, from the 6th till the 23rd of July 2017.
During this time, each choreographer will devise a new piece for the participants.
After an initial day of meet and greet and professional seminars, for the following four days each choreographer will lead a half-day workshop, for her/him to get to know the participants and viceversa. Each choreographer will then select the participants she/he wishes to work with for the creative process, that will take place until the final presentation.
Throughout the workshop, participants will be offered two daily warm-up classes to prepare to work with the choreographers (techniques and teachers TBA). The warm-up classes are also open to professional dancers/ recent graduates who are not participating to the creative processes.
OpenFLR 2017 will culminate in a final presentation, held in Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea on the 23rd July 2017, and open to the public.
