13:30 - 15:30
– a reflective talk on personal and structural change in inclusive performing arts
When: August 23 at 13:30-15:30
Over the years we have worked tirelessly to change the idea of who is allowed on stage. Drawing from experiences from both previous and existing networks, we wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on the changes that have been made during these years. What have we learned from working in inclusive dance? Have we gained new audiences or new insights, and how does the personal journey relate to the bigger picture?
Participants are Emilia Wärff (SE) – Dancer with Danskompaniet Spinn, Rani Nair (SE) – Choreographer, Malin Aghed (SE) – Skapa Manager at GöteborgsOperan and Anna Consolati (IT) – General Manager at Oriente Occidente Dance Festival. The talk is lead by Catharina Bergil – Head of unit, Performing arts, at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg. The talk is live-streamed from Vara Konserthus and is held in English.
The talk is part of the Spark Lab taking place at Vara Konserthus August 20-24.
