Xavier Le Roy returns to Lublin with a group of dancers and choreographers (including Saša Asentić, Jan Ritsema, Christine de Smedt), with whom he developed  z the acclaimed Low Pieces, which received raving reviews at the Theatre Confrontations festival in 2013. This time, the artist will visit Lublin working on their new piece. They will be accompanied by a group of 20 practitioners and theoreticians from around Europe, who will take part in a seminar on the politicality of contemporary choreographic practices.

 

Project curator: Marta Keil

 

The organisers are pleased to invite all interested parties to an open presentation of the piece on 8 March (7 pm) at the Centre for Culture in Lublin (Sala Widowiskowa), ul. Peowiaków 12. Free entrance cards are available at the Centre for Culture ticket office.

 

The artistic residency takes place as part of the Performative Centre, an multinational laboratory combining research and artistic practices in the fields of contemporary theatre and dance. One of the core tasks of the Centre is to build and develop discourse and critical reflection related to contemporary choreographic and performative practices. The key premise of the Centre is to create a space for free, lively dialogue liberated from market principles and academic hierarchies. 

 

The main goal of the Performative Centre is to offer artists, researchers and producers of art time and space for work free from the pressure of presentation of the ?final product.? The space of the Centre is free from compulsive production of new productions, pieces, events, premieres and presentations. Instead, the Centre offers time to develop one?s artistic and research practices, creates a space to exchange experience and supports the development of critical reflection on contemporary choreographic and performative practices in political, social and economic contexts.
