Through centuries, artists consider public space also as their work field. Contemporary artists like Christo, Kurt Perschke, Dan Graham, Benjamin Verdonck and Dries Verhoeven surprise us in public parks and on the streets. At the same time Fontys Dance Academy asks her students during their yearly project to work in public space.
What is this public space we’re talking about? Do we ever think about what it really means for us? And if we see the city we are living in change, will the meaning of its public space also change? How can we take a look at today’s public space? What was it and what is it now? Where will we go? And if public space is our work field, what roles can we take as a person and an artist?
After a brief introduction by Ulrika Kinn Svensson, artistic advisor at Fontys Dance Academy and Heleen Volman, artistic director of DansBrabant, Marc Glaudemans will lead us expertly along these and other questions.
Dance Dialogues is a collaboration between Tilburg Dansstad, DansBrabant and Fontys Dance Academy. This edition is organized in the context of the Erasmus + project Inclusive Dance: The transferable skills of the Dance Artist (2014-2017).
