For a period of two years, from 2019 to 2021, Urban Contemporary (JDM), Expanded Contemporary Dance, and Modern Theatre Dance departments will jointly run the Artist in Residence programme: Training the future. Context, Difference, Awareness in Dance Education
Collectively curated by the artistic directors, Gerleen Balstra, Bojana Bauer, and Angela Linssen the programme will gather students and teachers of the Academy of Theatre and Dance, a panel of international guests and Amsterdam dance community. We wish the merging of the training courses to be a process of consistent and lively exchange of content, knowledge and experiences.
The first session is taking place from Monday 7 January 2019 to Friday 11 January 2019 and focuses on the topic of talent.
To address the questions surounding this topic and move forward to the best possible practice we invite, students, educators, professional dancers, choreographers as well as theorists to think along and engage in practical experiences, through classes, workshops, discussions, conferences and more.
The guests who will work with students through classes, workshops, and discussions are:
Shailesh Bahoran, Drosha Grekhov, Judith Sánchez Ruíz, Calixto Neto, John Agesilas, Saâdia Sooyah, Mariem Guellouz, and Teana Boston-Mammah (tbc).
