- one day express lab
One Day Express Lab is a research programme (part of In Contact With programme) that started at the Dance House Lemesos in 2010 and it was initiated by Alexis Vassiliou.
The initial concept of One Day Express Lab is the invitation of two people from different artistic and/or scientific disciplines in order to meet for just one day, research a topic of their choice and present the outcome in a public presentation at the end of the day.
In 2018, the programme changed its structure and eight artists (from different backgrounds) are invited to work in duets. The outcome of the research is presented by the four duets to the public simultaneously at the end of the day.
The meetings held were attended by:
BOW – Bodies of Work
BOW – Bodies Of Work is a five-day intensive training program organized by Dance House Lemesos, supported by the Cultural Services-Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and developed in collaboration with BJCEM – Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean.
During the workshop, participants will be introduced to specific creative and research tools and will be encouraged to developed artistic discourses that allow to articulate the question of embodiment: how social bodies, labouring bodies, political bodies which are put “to work” in performance are able to mirror the complex relationships between subjectivities in motion and their environments.
