When artistic career and parenting unite

A two-day event for professionals dedicated to how you as an artist unite being a parent and having a professional artistic career. Is it possible to give your children a steady and safe everyday life combined with the unstable situation artists often finds themselves in?

Perhaps you are experiencing a dilemma when the next residency requires you to be away from your children for four weeks in a row while you are in the studio to immerse yourself. The children’s everyday life continues at home, and you can not always take an active part in it. Issues such as these will be addressed with Parent Hood at Edison, September 20th and 21st 2020.

Online workshop: Practices of Touch in a Time of Plague

Theatre Institute, Warsaw / PL / 29th of June & 2nd of July 2020

During the workshop, Renata Piotrowska-Auffret will propose performative and movement practices of touch, closeness and needs of the body. During the time of pandemia, the touch became a threat.

This situation opens space for new experiments and questions arond the notions of practising, performing and choreographing touch. 

How a practice of touch can became a practice of resistance? How to activate body to move through the touch in an online situation? How the relation between movement and words is changing in the frame of online workshop? What is a virtual performative and choreographic potential of touch?
