Ágnes Grélinger | Dance Matters

Peer to Peer | September 14 | 5 – 7 PM | Huset-KBH

“Dance matters” is the title for the first of the Peer to Peer conversations this fall and is facilitated by Ágnes Grélinger.

The topic for the conversation stems from life events that happened early summer of 2022 after a period of questioning: Why do I/we dance and why does it matter now, today? What is the material we are working with?

“Encountering different ways of sharing the joy, beauty, and depth of dance; its power to create universes, shared spaces of safety, reflection, and existence, I decided to invite 3 very different practitioners, who held much needed inspiration to fall in love with dancing, again.”

Grélinger has invited the peers Luca Borsos (HU), Lara Vejrup Ostan (SLO/DK), and Marie Kaae (DK) to share their experiences and thoughts about the topic.

After the conversations about why dance matters, we’ll end the event with a common ritual as an initiation for the coming season.

What is Peer to Peer?

Peer to Peer is a series of events focusing on professional sharings and conversations about dance, choreography, and its impact. You will meet colleagues in a facilitated yet casual space, where we share knowledge and are curious about what is happening in the field – and with each other.
During the season, we address different topics, and the individual events are facilitated by one or more invited artists.

We start by meeting for half an hour of informal conversation and something to drink in the café. Then we continue with presentations with invited guest(s) of the day. After the event, it is possible to continue the conversations in the café, where you can buy something to eat.

The topic and format are chosen by the invited artist in collaboration with Dansehallerne. How you choose to participate in the event is up to you.

We meet approximately twice a month, and the event is in English. You do not need to sign up – just show up. However, there is only room for 40 participants so the spots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on the evening itself.

In the autumn Peer to Peer will take place from 5-7 pm in Huset-KBH, Balsalen (1st floor next to Spisehuset), Rådhusstræde 13, 1466 Copenhagen.

Further information about the meeting will be communicated in advance on Dansehallerne’s website, Facebook and Instagram.

We regularly collect relevant topics and inspiration for the program, so feel free to send an email to producer Anna Katrine, akk@dansehallerne.dk, if you have any suggestions.
