Learn more about the events:
Laboratory of Movement[Laboratorium ruchu] is a project realised as part of the European Capital of Culture 2016 programme (curator: Adam Kamiński). It brings together many institutions and communities, including the Impart 2016 Festival Office, Institute of Music and Dance, Centrum Inicjatyw Artystycznych [Centre of Artistic Initiatives], Wroclaw Mime Theatre, Momentum Association of Creative Initiative, ARTEO Association, as well as a range of ensembles and individual artists, dance theoreticians and critics, and organisations dealing with the culture of movement in its broadest sense. The project is to conclude in 2016.
Laboratory of Movement is an appeal to Wroclaw’s common imagination: the dancing activities, lectures, performances, and improvised dancing in urban spaces will trigger new interpretations of Wrocław’s past and present, and suggest new ways of approaching the art of motion, of urban space, and of urban choreography. The project’s objective is also to explore new areas embraced by contemporary choreography and dance theatre, propagating the work of Pina Bausch and Henryk Tomaszewski, two great personalities linked with Wrocław in different ways. The Laboratory aims to build an open platform for artists originating in different cultures and utilising expressive artistic language.
