How Do You Work Session: Mette Edvardsen

Saturday 10 November 2018, 11:00 - 16:00 hrs.
DAS Graduate School
Overhoeksplein 2
1031 KS Amsterdam

Investigating and developing your practice and work go hand in hand. We invite guests, artists and cultural practitioners to share their way of working and engage in a conversation. Join us this Saturday for the How Do You Work Session with Mette Edvardsen - performer, choreographer.

Mette Edvardsen: "There has been a return to language in aesthetic practices over the last years, and also in dance and choreographic practices, language, text and writing has developed in various forms within our art form. I am interested in language and writing as part of my artistic practice, where the writing is immanent to the work, operating within it. I am interested in language, text and writing – in choreography – not as a shift towards another discipline or art form (theatre, literature), but within my own field and practice (dance and choreography).

I work with language, not in order to produce discourse around the pieces, but as material. I am interested in how reality exists in language and how this extends into real space. I want to use language to create imaginary spaces and choreography, and I am interested in how spoken language relates the body in space."

Time: 11-16, with a break
Location: DAS Graduate School
