More Than Movement

Dates 18, 19 20 July
Practitioners Fay van Baar, Ève-Marie Dalcourt, Alexander Ekman, Ben van Gelder, Catherine Moore, Andrew Richardson, Risa Steinberg
Duration 3 days

A three-day symposium for professional dancers which explores artistry in dance through multidisciplinary lectures, workshops and Q&A’s.

What is artistry? How do you apply artistry to movement? Are there methods to develop artistry?

Artistry is one of the most ambiguous subjects in dance, yet an integral part of being a performing artist. Over the span of three days, More Than Movement will conduct a series of collaborative and interdisciplinary masterclasses, lectures and Q&A’s, which will investigate the industry's definition of what it means to be a professional Performing Artist. Acknowledging the many different views, each practitioner and lecturer will be uniquely addressing different aspects of how we can define, develop, apply and explore Artistry.

Our goal is to create an open space for dialogue and collaborative learning. As an International Symposium, we hope to inspire an industry-wide dialogue which will continue to provide dancers with practical tools that help craft their artistic careers, and constantly maintain a strong level of creative agency.
