DCL – Dance Communication Lab Event
Beyond Front@ Building New Territories, D.ID Dance Identity
choreographer: Robert Clarke (UK)
Oho theatre Oberwart
Five dancers from all five co-organiser countries of Beyond Front@ Bridging New Territories (Slovenia,
Hungary, Austria, United Kingdom, Croatia) and five locally-based dancers got invited for presenting the results of a fourday long process of improvisation practice and developement, taking place in the D.ID studio in Pinkafeld. British choreographer Robert Clark leads this improvisational week. The artistic process will be developed live by the dancers in collaboration with musicians from the band M E M P L E X. The working approach of Robert Clark is based on improvisational tools and structures that enable the experience of dance itself as real-time choreography and empower the dancers to deal with its consequences.

Werkschau Artist At Resort – Term 7
TANZ*HOTEL | Resort 1020
Once the dancer’s body was considered as a solid construct, which got constantly shaped and corrected, compared to a house,e.g. wood. What happens when this house breaks down and all the developed work and trust into the trained body suddenly disappeares? The unexpected incident occurs. Realizing its own fragility. How to build up this lost confidence in oneself? Starting from beginning again: Pronation, Supination, Flexion, Extension, rotary and bending movements are therapeutic actions as well as inspiration. Aroused emotionally all those thoughts and feelings will be shared, that happened in that time out.

WITH(OUT) – Solo sketch work
LAB10 – theatre group Fourth Monkey, Leicester Square Theatre, London
Work in Progress Sharing, studios of Newington Dance Space, London
The space is seen as a memoryfield, where the body is reminiscing certain memories from the past. The pure description of the body, the thinking back and rewind of ‚how it was‘ bring the performer into states, in which the past turns to present once more.
The essence is the transformation of reminiscing and writing down memories on paper. What emotions and desires are coming up when experiencing these one last time?

Dollyolli plays with general known images of the popular culture and ideas/ interpretations about art and society, which they use but also break up and try to mimic. By using simple movements, that appear like daily gestures or desperate nonverbal tries of communication, they create grotesque movements by exageration,repetition and simplicity.
