Project —

During my stay in Faber I will do double work: investigation and dance critic. My intention is to investigate the concept of nature present in the choreographic proposals of residents. This notion, recurrent in modern and contemporary dance, tends to correspond with great philosophical ideas, such as the release of the classical canon or the return of the lost nature. The research work will lead a seminar, a conference and an academic paper. At the same time, I would like to share the choreographic experience of residents interviewing them and disseminating their work in specialised press..
