Boaz Barkan | Dance and somatic practice with children

Peer to Peer | November 23 | 5 – 7 PM | Huset-KBH

In this Peer to Peer, Boaz Barkan will discuss somatic practice and share his experience of creating an interactive dance performance with children inside their classroom.

Boaz Barkan has invited Anna Lea Ourø Jensen to elaborate on the process of creating and performing Blækspruttetanker, which is part of Dansehallernes KORA-program.

In the process of creating the work, we focused on articulating the connection between perception, sensation, and movement (dance), by using verbalization as a path from conventional to unconventional modes of being in the world and movement. We attempt to create space within the classroom, in which dance becomes a mode of interacting and knowing the world.

Please join us for a nice conversation.

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 guest(s) of the day. After the event, you can 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,, if you have any suggestions.
