After the success of the formative and creative workshop in circus and dance organized in 2016, the Mercat de les Flors and La Central del Circ propose in 2018 in collaboration with the center for movement creation and study El Graner, a new creative, experiential and formative action: an artist workshop directed by Jean-Michel Guy (FR) and Volmir Cordeiro (BR).
During two weeks, both will accompany 15 artists towards a new view of movement and contemporary circus, analysing both disciplines with the aim of learning what they are currently requiring.
This workshop is addressed to high physical commitment contemporary circus and movement artists who are interested in creating a favourable situation to investigate new circus and dance practices.
It will be held from April 9th to April 21st 2018 and will conclude with and open showing within the cycle Circ d’Ara Mateix of El Mercat de les Flors.
La Central del Circ, El Graner and Mercat de les Flors are launching this call to select 15 professional artists of circus and dance (between 7 and 8 of each discipline, contemporary circus and movement)to participate in an artist workshop forged at the crossing point between both arts, under the direction of Jean-Michel Guy, researcher, artistic counsellor and director, and Volmir Cordeiro, choreographer, dancer and researcher. This workshop will take the philosophy of a laboratory.
The period for applications to this Artist Workshop is now closed. The results will be announced from February 5, 2018.
