LAKE Studio Berlin’s reflective forum is returning for a new season of engagements on the threshold between dance and thought, practice and theory, where doing is pondering and thought always is in action.
Four weekends will be dedicated to four choreographers and their specific interests, interlacing hands-on work in the studio with online statements and dialogues with activists, scholars, artists and curators. The program brings forth different perspectives on practice, practice as something simultaneously self-referential and active transformative forms of participation with the world.
The focus artists, who will be present through their practices but not in person (with the exception of Cristina Rizzo), function as a generator for exchange and conversation, grounding reflection, staying close to practice yet allowing for critical positions.
