In this series of workshops with dance dramaturg Guy Cools, participants will be provided with the practical tools and exercises to reflect upon, to evaluate and eventually to transform their creative process.

Using the cross, circle and labyrinth as graphic symbols, you will discuss the essential polarities of the creative process: perception, formation, intuition, experience. In the workshop you will focus on perception (what to look for), articulation (how to express oneself best in order to get what you are looking for) and interdisciplinary practices (looking at how artists work in other disciplines and finding creative ‘translations’ of this toward your own practice). Through practical and physical exercises, you will explore how dramaturgy/the dramaturge can contribute to this process as witness, dialogue partner and ‘editor’. You will focus amongst others on the editing process and the importance of rhythm and transitions inside this process. The workshop will be combined with individual coaching sessions, looking at the participants own work.

The final goal of the workshop is to gain a different, renewed perspective of one’s own creative and choreographic process and methodologies.
