Dealing with the void
In this peer to peer Ella Östlund, newly entered into the freelance dance scene, invites to an informal conversation with Quim Bigas Bassart and Lara Ostan Vejrup about unemployment. The invitation strands from a need to speak aloud about the void that unemployment, or other lack of institutional affirmation, seems to create for many in the free art field – namely the field of dance and choreography. The conversation will attempt to surf the emotional, structural and psychological implications of these voids in our working lives. How do we live with art in the void? Where are the challenges? How are we doing? An invitation for peers to come and converse, and hopefully share strategies and tools to deal with the void.
Peer to Peer is a series of artist-driven conversations focusing on professional sharings about dance, choreography, and its impact. You will meet colleagues in a facilitated yet casual space. Peer to Peer is about getting closer to your community and being curious about what is happening in the field – and with each other.
The invited artists will set the different topics and facilitate the conversations. The specific program for each event will be announced during the season.
We start by meeting for half an hour of informal chat and something to drink. Then we continue with the facilitated part by the invited guest(s) of the day. After the event, it is possible to hang out and continue the conversations.
This season Peer to Peer takes place at Huset-KBH (Balsalen), Rådmandsstræde 13, 1466 Copenhagen K, 1st floor beside Spisehuset
The topic and format are chosen by the invited artist in collaboration with Dansehallerne. How you choose to participate in the conversations 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.
