BOW – Bodies of work
BOW (Bodies of Work) was an intensive training programme organized by Dance House Lemesos on October of 2019, 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 were introduced to specific creative and research tools and were 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?
The activities of the workshops were rooted in a social and geopolitical understanding of the bodies and their mobility. In this perspective, we took a look at how geographical, social, artistic boundaries are affected, transformed, through the constant shift and relocation of the bodies in a possible transnational space.
