International ChoreoLab Austria 2016BODYHOOD_NARRATIVE & composition

24 July – 5 August 2016 in St. Margarethen/Burgenland and Vienna

The International ChoreoLab 2016 titled ‘BODYHOOD_NARRATIVE & composition’ focuses on the universal stories born of immanent stillness and their implementation into performance.

The “BODYHOOD” stands for contemplation, anchorage and origin. The ChoreoLab opens a discourse concerning the multiplicity of storytelling and its return to a corporeal origin; whether as diverse idioms of dance vocabulary or as manifold forms of verbal expression (speech, poetry, song) – a narrative is always present.

The Art and Nature Sanctuary at St. Margarethen/Burgenland in Austria and its unique Sculptors’ House, will serve as ICLA’s opening location: “CountryLab”. The magnificent Pannonian landscape offers an ideal, open structure for a multi-faceted research.

Tanz Atelier Wien functions as the office and “CityLab” for ICLA 2016.
