Conflict Resolution, Choreographic Practice, and the Creation of Participatory Events / Workshop / Dana Caspersen / Bratislava
13. october 2019 / 10.00 – 12.00 a.m.
Study innovative strategies with Dana Caspersen, conflict specialist, award-winning performer, and author of Changing the Conversation: The 17 Principles of Conflict Resolution, and The MichaelDouglas Kollektiv, whose focus includes research on collaborative art production and the development of collective creation methods in the performance context.
What moves? How does it move? Why does it move? In this interactive workshop, participants will engage with Caspersen’s work integrating practices from conflict resolution and choreography in the creation of participatory events. Using tools from this practice, participants will gain hands-on experience in creating new, physically-based models for communication, reflection and exchange. No dance experience or physical skill required.
