International ChoreoLab Austria

The International ChoreoLab Austria (ICLA) was initiated in 2009 by the choreographer Sebastian Prantl and the pianist Cecilia Li, who are artistic directors of Tanz Atelier Wien. Its objective is art-based research in the interface of body, mind and nature. The ICLA aims to lift choreography out of the confines of stage production and to expand it to the field of quotidian sequences of movement, knowledge production and cultural techniques of body and mind.

Protagonists from various fields of arts and sciences are being invited to step in an active exchange with one another. The ICLA is designed to stimulate the exchange of expertise beyond the confines of single disciplines and to create a space where new synergies can emerge.

24 July – 5 August 2016 in St. Margarethen/Burgenland and Vienna

The International ChoreoLab 2016 titled ‘BODYHOOD_NARRATIVE & composition’ focuses on the universal stories born of immanent stillness and their implementation into performance.

“BODYHOOD” stands for contemplation, anchorage and origin. The ChoreoLab opens a discourse concerning the multiplicity of storytelling and its return to a corporeal origin; whether as diverse idioms of dance vocabulary or as manifold forms of verbal expression (speech, poetry, song) – a narrative is always present.
