The Social Network for Innovators in Motion
Just returned from Geneva from the GVA Sessions 2011.
Led by Cristian Vogel and Marlon Barrios Solano, the participants – dancers, choreographers, musicians and composers worked on the issue Dialog: Sound and Movement . The GVA Sessions 2011 offered a mixed format providing a collaborative space for different types and levels of knowledge, artists research and production. Over a seven-day period, we all worked in a self organizing and collaborative format.
July 16th and 17th 2011 : Perspectives and Frames Symposium. A two day seminar over the weekend with an international guest group of choreographers, composers and interdisciplinary artists. They dissected and discussed with the participants their recent work and practices, exploring the practical and conceptual challenges involved in the composition of choreography, music and sound. See list of speakers on GVA Sessions website.
July 18-23 2011 The performers and choreographers had morning workshops led by Marlon Barrios Solano, based on somatic, release and contact work.
