About Moving Landscapes…
The artistic language of kabinet k has a playful, energetic, yet subtle power. In the frame of their recent creations, the choreographer of the company, Joke Laureyns, will share an insight in the dance vocabulary of kabinet k. This workshop is a playful encounter between the choreographer and the participants, revealing some aspects of how they work with different generations on stage and how a creation takes shape. What is at stake? It’s about dance in its purest and most essential form: the articulation of the moving body.
“The aim is to enlarge our choreographic skills, and to make our work more transparent for whatever audience, both children and adults. It's not about making things more simple, it's about a search for the most essential; the very pure heart of what we would like to communicate as an artist. We can only refer to our own way of handling and making choices as kabinet k, and in the workshop we'd like to share our experiences with the participants.
Our concrete starting point is a series of 'physical exercises' as we do in creating, as well as in workshops with children or adults. Most of these tasks or exercises were designed to understand movement 'from within'. We want to play with these tasks with the participants and let every one create small results, based on that common starting point.
As the results might be different, every individual will become more aware of the potential within his or her own work to present it for young audiences. It is about installing some keys to make it possible to read a piece, to make it easier to watch these abstract landscapes on stage.” (Joke Laureyns)
