Arkadi Zaides
Border Choreographies

Chrysa Parkinson
Disorienting Front

WITHIN PRACTICE  är en sju dagars mötesplats mellan professionella dansare och studenter från DOCH och en intresserad publik. Symposiet fokuserar på praktik och praktiker utifrån utövarens perspektiv genom bl.a. workshoppar och publika presentationer.
Begreppet praktik(er) är vanligt förekommande inom dans och koreografi idag, en del skulle t o m säga att det är övermättat. Begreppet praktik kan ge möjlighet att gå bortom projektifieringen av konsten och istället insistera på andra långsiktiga sätt att arbeta på. Praktik kan erbjuda sätt att generera koreografi och rörelser, att träna/repetera (to practice).

I Within practice vill vi lyfta det inneboende experimenterandet och insisterandet som praktiker har, och erbjuda en plats för praktiserande, samtal och konstnärspresentationer och fortsätta bygga gemenskaper mellan utövare.

Workshoppar, presentationer, open source, dans och samtal.
I inbjudningarna till konstnärerna Caroline Byström, Alice Chauchat, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Chrysa Parkinson, Salvador Sanchis och Arkadi Zaideshar samtalet om deras praktiker stått i centrum. Varje konstnär i Within Practice kommer att göra sex workshoppar under fyra dagar för att sedan göra en publik presentation. Dessa presenteras nu i Eric Ericsonhallen för deltagarna och allmän publik kvällarna 11, 12, 13 Oktober. 

Within Practice är ett samarbete mellan Säfsten Production och Institutionen för dans på DOCH/Stockholms konstnärliga högskola.
Genomförs med stöd av Kulturrådet, Stockholm Stad och Konstnärsnämnden.


Arkadi Zaides
PRESENTATION Border Choreographies

In this talk Choreographer Arkadi Zaides will discuss two of his recent works. Both focus on borders as spaces that generate movement and provoke ethics. With the use of documentary materials, a specific choreography is identified in the proximity of borders. As a performer Arkadi embodies the ones who are in power. In Archive (2014) he embodies the gestures of Israeli settlers in the West Bank and in TALOS (2017) he becomes a spokesman of an EU funded project that aims to replace human border guards with robots. Questions of participation and responsibility arise as the stage mirrors the practices and the power relations which constitute the border.

Arkadi Zaides was both in 1979 inּ Belorussia, former USSR, and immigrated to Israel in 1990. He currently lives and works between Brussels (BE) and Lyon (FR). Zaides’ work examines the ways in which political and social contexts effect the physical body and constitute choreography. He holds a Master’s degree from the Amsterdam Master Of Choreography program at the Theater School (NL). He has been awarded the Emelie Zola Price for performing Arts (2013) and the Kurt Jooss Award (2010). Besides his artistic practice Zaides continuously develops platforms to promote contemporary discourse of performance making, such as “Violence of Inscriptions” with dramaturge and researcher Sandra Noeth, “Moves Without Bordes” in close collaboration with Goethe Institut Israel and “New Dance Project” in Jerusalem with choreographer Anat Danieli. Besides his own choreographic work is also continuously involved in the process of many colleagues and artists. During 1999–2004 Zaides was part of the Batsheva Ensemble and the Batsheva Dance Company, both led by artistic director Ohad Naharin.


Chrysa Parkinson 
PRESENTATION Disorienting Front

A performance practice consisting of a collection of voiced statements around and about the experience of front. The creation and performance of this text is an ongoing practice of facing fronts, some current, some ancient, some mine, some not. The collection of statements draws from poetry, science fiction, theory, fantasy, jokes, anecdotes and old dictionaries.
The practice is performed in English with a duration of about 40 minutes.

Chrysa Parkinson is a dancer living in Stockholm. She has been performing and teaching internationally since 1985. Her artistic research is focused on the performer’s experiential authorship. Chrysa’s writing, films and interviews have been published and distributed internationally. She is a Professor of Dance and the Director of the New Performative Practices MFA program at DOCH/Uniarts in Stockholm.
