workshop with Claudel Doucet
We are inviting artists to apply for a "distanced" workshop of internationally performing contemporary circus artist Claudel Doucet.
Considering the impossibility of leading the Balcony project as initially planned in June 2020, Cirkuliacija proposes to split the workshop in 2 parts. A first part would be articulated via "distanced" means (internet, zoom, etc) in June 2020. The second part of the creation, involving a live workshop leading to a performance will take place in the next edition of Cirkuliacija in the spring 2021.
𝗖𝗶𝗿𝗸𝘂𝗹𝗶𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗷𝗮 𝗶𝘀 𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿:
- circus artists
- parkourists, breakdancers
- actors and actresses
- slam poets
- you name it.
⚫️ HELLO - HOW ARE YOU (SOMETHING DID HAPPEN) - working title
JUNE 1st to 14th 2020
This "distanced workshop" will invite the participants through conversations and individual exercises to articulate their relationship to memory and commemoration. Conducted over 2 weeks, the group will engage together for about 1h/day via video conference and then have different practical exercises to explore individually. This project will lead to individual projects that will share a connection to be discovered. The format of the outcome is open.
As a preparation for the live workshop and performance that will take place in Vilijampole next year, we will gather information and impressions related to the specific history of this space.
Through guided physical improv, writing exercises, walks, runs, audio recordings, photography, video, etc. we will discover together how we can explore themes of perplexity, grief/resilience, healing/forgetting, reconciliation/forgiveness, grace/heaviness and memory/duty, in the specific context of our current situation.
About the lecturer:
Claudel is an artist whose career was fostered in the culture of contemporary circus. She researches risk in bodies and presences to weaken facades and explores the forces that stretch, between violence and tenderness. She looks at the ineffable, the delicate and the vertigo which in turn unites us or confines us to solitude. Her often site-specific and always interdisciplinary projects explore intimacy long to create new forms of communities.
