Book launch by Jeroen Peeters, with Jonathan Burrows and Sara Manente
Free entrance - no reservations - 7pm - P.A.R.T.S.
Drawing on his experience in the field of contemporary dance, in "And then it got legs: Notes on dance dramaturgy", Jeroen Peeters discusses principles, methods and practices that contribute to an understanding of dramaturgy as an experimental, collaborative practice and a material form of thinking.
How do you set up conditions for the work to come about? How do you create a shared ground for exploring the unfamiliar in pursuit of making sense? The book is written from practice and reflects a particular history of collaboration and conversation with various dance-makers.
"And then it got legs" is published by Varamo Press. Dance-making and dramaturgy thrive on embodied knowledge, oral transmission and a culture of commoning. This spirit guides the presentation too: choreographers Jonathan Burrows and Sara Manente will respond to the book with oral annotations, followed by a conversation with Jeroen Peeters.
You can purchase the book at the event.
