Surviving Dance –
Kunst-Wirtschaft-Politik | 2011

A production by Angela Guerreiro

SURVIVING DANCE – art, economy and politics’ is a platform for reflection and discussion upon social and work conditions for artists and the role they play in society. The Project engages artists, cultural and governmental institutions, non-artists and citizens in order to discuss about the role of dance and its general conditions within a social, economical and political span.

SURVIVING DANCE – art, economy and politics’ starts with a mini residency of four week with six Hamburg choreographers, Antoine Effroy, Danielle Brown, Uta Engel, Anja Winterhalter, Irina Virkulina and Ursina Tossi which are asked to create short choreographies at K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie | Tanzplan Hamburg from April to May 2011 with mentoring by Claude Jansen and Angela Guerreiro. Results will be presented under the frame of the final Symposium on the 20th and 21st May 2011.

An essential part of the project are the three working groups these are meetings between the resident choreographers, dance institutions, cultural centers, residency infrastructures, cultural managers, organizations, associations, economy and politic departments, labor offices and the Hamburg fellow-citizens with the aim to develop critical comments, visions and results to be presented and discussed at the final Symposium.
