International Training Course of Choreographic Coaching - APPEAL

Given by experienced foreign choreographers: Jean Gaudin, Jean-Christophe Paré, Dominique Rebaud (FR)

Date of event22. - 28. 8. 2014 |  Place of eventPRAGUE

The training course wants to open new ways of research and elaboration of elements already used in the choreographer's work, all of this based on the choreographers' previous work. The whole course is designed as a dialogue between choreographers and experienced artists (“coaches”) who guide the former in their work.


Participating choreographers will create something for the opportunity of the course or will elaborate on an extract of an already existing choreography (15 minutes maximum) that will serve as a basis for the work during the training course. The coaches will see the basic material on a video recording beforehand so that they can get acquainted with the inner world of each choreographer and understand their way of perception before the beginning of the training course.
During the training course the participants will analyse individual elements of their choreographies, try to define these and, together with their coaches, re-identify what is important and what could be further developed. The results of their work will be presented within a public work in progress. The goal isn't to present a final product or a whole choreography but rather a phase of a creative process.

The training course is designed for professional dancers and choreographers.

Price: 180 EURO
