About the project:
"Codes and languages in the relationship between
choreographers & dancers"
was an encounter series organized by choreographer Gabriella Maiorino
in the Danslab Studio.
Over the years the research done in the Danslab
studio has conjured up many ideas, thoughts and questions about the
relationship between dancers and choreographers. Danslab wanted to
take a closer look at this subject within a surrounding where perspectives
and experiences can be shared – between
choreographers, between choreographers & dancers and between dancers & dancers.
In June/July 2010 choreographer Gabriella Maiorino and her dancers invited
four other choreographers and their dancers to various research sessions
in the Danslab studio.
The invited choreographers & dancers:
Gabriella Maiorino, Valentina Campora and Cristina Leitao; Mor Shani,
Reut Shemesh and Stave Dror; Jack Gallagher and Marjolein Vogels, Tan
Temel and Sernaz Demirel; Giulia Mureddu and Hilde Elbers; Andrea Leine
and Ederson Rodrigues Xavier, Reut Gez Wang and Erik Bos
Danslab also invited several 'outsiders' - including
artists & writers
- to witness these sessions and/or take part in the encounters. Babette
Wagenvoort & Melanja Palitta used their interpretation of these research
sessions to create new work which they showed (in progress) at the SummerNest
Work in progress of this project was shown as part of ‘SummerNest’ in Nest,
DCR, Den Haag, August 7th to September 4th 2010
With video by Melanja Palitta,
drawings (another series than the ones mentioned above) & poetry: Babette

work is still in progress. Watch this space for updates.
