Immateriality: Choreography as an Expanded Concept

Immateriality: Choreography as an Expanded Concept

Application Deadline: Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Time: 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Location: Nelson Studio, University Club

This workshop is for any and all makers of performance – choreography, theater, action etc.

Wrestle with impossibility. Spangberg’s work is intentionally disruptive and/or playful with what we expect dance & theater to be: the complicated (side)effects of experimentation, even working through boredom and obscurity, reference and confusion.

A rare opportunity, not to be missed.

Marten Spangberg is a performance-related artist living and working in Stockholm. His interests concern choreography in an expanded field, something that he has approached through experimental practices and creative process in multiplicity of formats and expressions. He has been active on stage as performer and creator since 1994, and has since 1999 created his own choreographies, from solos to larger scale works, which has toured internationally. He has collaboratored with, among others, Xavier Le Roy, Christine De Smedt/Les Ballets C de la B. With the architect Tor Lindstrand he initiated International Festival, an interdisciplinary practice merging architecture and choreography/performance. From 1996 – 2005 Spangberg organized and curated festivals in Sweden and internationally. He initiated the network organization INPEX in 2006. He has thorough experience in teaching both theory and practice. He is since 2008 director for the MA program in choreography at the Univ. of Dance in Stockholm.

This event is sponsored by the Graduate Group in Performance Studies, the Davis Humanities Institute, the Departments of Art, Design and Theatre and Dance
