Giving dance a touch of drama

The Cyprus Centre of the International Theatre Institute and Dance House Lemesos continues their educational and research work by hosting Belgian dramatist, dance critic and educator Guy Cools in a two-day creative workshop under the title The Dramaturgy in contemporary dance, which will take place on December 15 and 16.

The weekend will include a participatory workshop on the dramaturgy of dance and the creative process.

The workshop will provide participants with practical tools and exercises to transform and develop their creative process. Through activities and physical exercises, the way in which dramaturgy or the dramatist can contribute to the creative process as a viewer, as an interlocutor and as a ‘curator’ will be explored.

Following the above thematic, the workshop will focus on the recruitment, teaching and the interdisciplinary practices of the creative process of dance. The eight-hour experiential workshop will discuss current trends in contemporary dance, with the ultimate aim of acquiring a different, renewed perspective of the creative process and of the choreographic methodology. The workshop is addressed to dance, theatre and general performing arts professionals.
