EDN Atelier “The missing link” at Hellerau Dresden · Program

20 – 22 MAY 2016

During the festival “Projeto Brasil”, we will have an Atelier which focuses on new models of artistic work in the frame of community work an today’s shared economy values. Presentations and discussions will present different models of transnational co-productions and networks. Having Brazilian artist Lia Rodrigues, whose dance center is located in the biggest favela of Rio de Janeiro, as well as Daniel Lie, a fine artist who makes installations with fruits and natural materials which decay and rot over the time of the exhibition, will enrich the Atelier and its focus.

Being at the Festspielhaus Hellerau, created more than 100 years ago as a “laboratory of modernity”, combining work with community life and nature, seems like the best spot to have a transnational dialogue between Europe and Latin America about dance, dancehouses, cooperations, artistic projects, visions.

One of the main themes of the project is perspectivism: How to transform yourself in order to see the world from another perspective? Another key question will be a discussion about the differenciation between price and value. This Atelier offers the possibility to invite some key figures from the performing arts from Latin America to Dresden to meet and discuss with EDN members and other networks, sharing practices, similarities and differences.
