Dear Festival and Friends | Αfterthoughts | Programme’s Working Group
Kυριακή 01.10 | 17:00 (60’)
@ Δημοτικό Κέντρο Τεχνών – Αποθήκες Παπαδάκη
The context programme “Dear festival and friends…” curated and facilitated by Rodia Vomvolou (dance dramaturg, researcher) and Betina Panagiotara (dance theorist, dramaturg), proposes the activation of critical thinking and writing around Open House festival and its performances. Starting from the festival’s curatorial choice of hosting works by artists who identify as women, and using letter writing as a basic working method, the programme aims to reflect critically on the performances and to provide a different kind of contextualization to the festival and its participants. How can we think, discuss and write critically together using the practice of letter writing as a tool to process the reactions/thoughts that the works trigger and how does the curatorial gaze of the festival relate to that of the spectators?
