Unlimited access to culture and the arts

10 December 2014
19:00-21:00
Upper Stage
What is dance and who is a dancer? An open discussion on the active participation of people with disabilities in culture.
Free admission
What new challenges does bodily difference pose for choreographers and dancers? How do the established narratives change in a context of this sort? In the end, what is dance and who is a dancer? To what degree should we rethink the terms we use to analyze and interpret dance works?
 
Apart from the international dance festival “Unlimited Access” that will bring the programme to an end in February 2015, the 2014-15 season features a public discussion devoted to issues relating to aesthetics and creative practices.
 
“Unlimited Access” is a programme of actions and workshops for people with and without disabilities which was staged in the summer of 2013 in four countries: the UK, Portugal, Croatia and Greece. Its aim: to develop best practices in the commissioning, creating and staging of performing arts events involving people with disabilities.
