Creative Laboratory | Olga Tsvetkova
Creative Laboratory of Choreography
The main focus of the laboratory is to locate/discover and manifest different approaches in the act of creating choreography. The group will detect several possibilities of translating ideas to the theatrical and non-theatrical space by the means of light, sound, body, text and movement. Every day will be dedicated to one of these topics; the group will be searching for the possibility to present the same subject/theme to the spectator through the use of different tools and mechanisms, derived from theatre, dance and visual arts. In the end of each day a work in progress will be presented followed by a discussion.
