“E-Motional: rethinking dance” is an artist and manager-driven initiative, dedicated to exchange, research and artistic collaboration, co-production and touring, and audience development at European level. As the title shows, the guiding idea of the programme is re-thinking of artistic practices and formats and finding the right language in development of new artistic contents in the field of contemporary dance.
Between 2013-2015, the proposed activities include: reflection-oriented encounters for groups of dance professionals, interdisciplinary artistic residencies, sharing formats for artistic processes, co-production of new works and performance programming, professional development opportunities for dance writers and journalists, and dedicated programmes for general audience, including regular dance classes, movie screenings, artist talks and lectures. The new E-Motional programme is born from the experience of the E-Motional Bodies & Cities project developed between 2011-2013 (visit archive in the menu).
E-Motional promotes an interdisciplinary approach and includes opportunities for dance professionals as well as professionals coming from all movement-based or connected disciplines from the entire EU (visual arts, new media, music, theatre, etc.) in Bucharest, Riga, Porto, Bacau & Luxembourg.
“E-Motional: rethinking dance” is created and organised by Gabriela Tudor Foundation (Bucharest), as project leader, in collaboration with the Association of Professional Dance Choreographers of Latvia (Riga), Fabrica de Movimentos (Porto) and “George Apostu” Cultural Centre (Bacau), in association with Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois – TROIS C-L (Luxembourg) and “George Enescu” National Museum (Bucharest).
