After a warm welcome by TANZPAKT Dresden, VILLA WIGMAN and HELLERAU, Rosalind will offer a gentle warm-up to open up the body and attune the senses. Beginning with breath work to create space in the body/mind before moving on to gentle stretches and movements influenced by her practice of Qi Gong, this 30 minute session will leave you refreshed and ready to dive into the TANZPAKT Dresden Academy. Please wear comfortable clothes, a yoga mat/and or blanket is recommended but not necessary, and enough space to lie on the floor. Please notify Rosalind if there are any special physical needs.
"Opening Thoughts on Art, Work, Money and Other Stuff"
Between networks, funding, (art) market (constraints), applications, public relations, festivals and venue confirmations, but also, for example, voluntarism and political commitment, artists move and produce nowadays. Under the pressure of time for the next deadline, there is usually no time for reflecting on one's own modes of production, for wishing for and imagining new structuring possibilities and working strategies.
On the other hand, the Sars-Cov-2 pandemic highlights many weaknesses of the system. Other solutions are more than necessary. Only, how can new solutions be designed that distance themselves from the primacy of technocracy, corporate ideology, quantity ideology, and neoliberal structures of leadership and organization? Is that even possible? And desired?
