GVA SESSIONS 11 // CALL FOR APPLICATIONS Summer 11, Geneva, Switzerland

GVA Sessions 2011 Dialog: Sound and Movement July 16th - 23rd 2011

GVA Sessions is an interdisciplinary research and international exchange platform organized by the Gilles Jobin Company, geared to respond to the ever changing artistic environment of the performing arts, primarily contemporary dance, music and related creative technologies.

The GVA Sessions 2011 we will be focusing on exploring one of the longest established collaborative partnerships in the performing arts: that between choreographer and composer, choreography and music. This year, it will offer a mixed format providing a collaborative space for different types and levels of knowledge, artists research and production.

Since 2007, the GVA Sessions have led knowledge exchange gatherings inviting international creative arts practitioners to Geneva (Switzerland) with the goal to share their artistic inquiry, think  and create together, in an informal collaborative yet rigorous setting.
GVA Sessions is offered to the selected participants through a grant. More infomation on the website of the Cie Gilles Jobin.

 

The GVA Sessions 2011 will take place in Geneva in July as an eight days seminar-workshop. It offers to the participants a hybrid collaborative format that will have two intersecting instances:

 

1. Perspectives and Frames International Seminar : July 16  - 17   2011
We will start a two day seminar over the weekend with an international guest group of choreographers, composers and interdisciplinary artists who will dissect and discuss with participants their recent work and practices, exploring the practical and conceptual challenges involved in the composition of choreography, music and sound.

Myriam Gurfink (France)
Cindy Van Acker (Switzerland)
Ariella Vidach (Italy/Switzerland)

and more... stay tuned
