Spatial Scores // Embodied Fields

Dancing Architects 2020

A hearty invitation to DA20: Dancing Architects’ second summer workshop - a journey of spatial choreography, exploring the way we engage, perceive, and create space by moving

Open to all who study and work in Architecture

No prior experience in dance and choreography necessary!

An interdisciplinary exploration, the workshop will take you to a personal journey of architectural choreography. Invigorating movement sessions will awaken our spatial awareness, while playful activities experiment with architectural ideas. With individual inner motivations and senses, participants will learn to express embodied ideas through the physicality of the body and choreography in relation to people and movement; to objects and habits; to spaces and in-betweens; to the streets and urban behaviours; transcending time and space. Together, we will work towards creating shared experiences in the form of performance as an experimental architectural dialogue. Our field of operation is a beautiful self-sustainable setting amongst olive trees, and the urban streets and spaces in the White City of Ostuni, Apulia, Italy.

Spatial Scores // Embodied Fields 

 

DA20 will work with the idea of rituals and habits: every-day and repeating, and often unconscious gestures and actions that are secretly and powerfully informing and forming our environment. Questioning many aspects of life and architecture that are often taken for granted, we will move, talk, think, draw, watch, listen, write, and make; and eat and drink; then wonder and wander; to dance and to perform; and to create. Expect the infectious happiness of moving together!
