The last year and a half has encouraged many artists to experiment with new ways of collaborating- often at the intersection of multiple disciplines, practices, and time zones. Join us as artists reflect on the demands and possibilities of such experimentation.
Silvia Carderelli-Gronau, a Movement Artist, teamed up with Computer Scientist Swen E. Gaudl to develop a sound-based framework that enables dancers to move and improvise with each other from different locations, creating a network of presence, connection and touch beyond the visual sphere. You can read more about their project, Sonic Dancer, here.
In this workshop, we trace Silvia and Swen’s journey of making Sonic Dancer: were they supported in negotiating the uncertainty in innovation? How did they navigate any frictions arising in their interdisciplinary collaboration? How could this experimental project be sustained through finding application in wider contexts?
Following artist reflections, the conversation will be opened to the audience.
