Chrono-Logics – presentation of BaNd:expanded in Riga

From August 27 till September 4 the “BaNd:expanded” atelier “CHRONO-LOGICS” for young performing art professionals from Baltic and Nordic countries is taking place in Riga. Actors, directors, dramaturgs and choreographers from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Norway, Finland and Sweden are taking part in the workshop run by Croatian dramaturg Goran Sergej Pristaš with support of his collaborator in BADco. Tomislav Medak and British theatre researcher Alan Read.

The workshop paradoxically enough started with the evaluation where participants shared their impressions on the final presentation, which had happened on September 3. The promises made and directions envisioned during this evaluation framed the one week long workshop focused on the notion of time. Throughout the workshop different concepts of time and its representation like “time after (in)completion”, “projective temporality”, “time that remains”, “operative time” “working time”, “timeless time”, “life-time”, “time-space compression” etc. were discussed. The final presentation will offer spectators to become the participants as well, taking time to communicate with the artists their knowledge about relationships between time and performance. The audience is invited to join the time flows of different directions and speed, as well as the different fragments of time.

BaNd:expanded presentation takes place on September 3, 2013 at 16.00 at Dirty Deal Teatro in Riga, Maskavas str. 12/2. Welcome!
