Basic Dance

  • Basic Dance was a project conceived and directed by Paz Rojo. From a solo created by/for her, I was invited to research a translation and create a presentation format of this experience, our meeting and negotiations. Together, we started the second part of this project (my solo), to understand and research what translation would mean when we talked about dance, body and movement. This phase took place in a residence in Tallinn/Estonia (June/July 2004). The show premiered at the Gasthuis Theater in Amsterdam in September 2004. Also involved in this project were playwright Robert Stein and theorist Bojana Kunst.
  • Produced by Lisa and Gasthuis theater in collaboration with Kanuti Gildi Saal, Tallinn, Estonia.
  • With the support of: Amsterdam Fonds Voor de Kunst and Fonds voor de Podium Kunsten.
  • Premiere September 23, 24 and 25, 2004 at the Gasthuistheater, Amsterdam. NL
