The last BaNd:expanded atelier approaching

Three years have almost passed, and the last one of six BaNd:expanded ateliers for young performing arts professionals from Baltic and Nordic countries will take place in Latvia from August 27 till September 4, 2013. Altogether 34 artists are now part of the BaNd:expanded network.

Moderated by members of performance collective BADco. Goran Sergej Pristaš and Tomislav Medak, this atelier will focus the logics and logistics of temporality in performing arts and artistic labour in general.

Goran Sergej Pristaš explains: ‘While different temporal structures are always represented in spatial terms, the lab will start from a presumption that theatre is always temporal mode of representation of spatial manifestations. Instead of a final performance the aim of the lab is to create a complex temporal diagram of encounters, swerves and spatial relations in BaNd:expanded. Throughout the workshop we will disscuss 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.’

The first part of the atelier (27.-31.08.) will take place in the recreation centre “Bruveri” in Sigulda. The last days of the atelier will coincide with the International Festival of Contemporary Theatre “Homo Novus”, and the participants will have the opportunity to see performances, meet artists and present the outcome of the BaNd:expanded atelier during the festival.
