ABOUT THE PROJECT
With the support of the glossary work and the interactive MoveApp launched thanks to the “Close Distance” program by Pro Helvetia, CocoonDance follows with RUNthrough its assiduous search for the „Unthought Body“.
"RUNthrough" is an educational, artistic research and production project at the same time. In this research and exchange project, CocoonDance will cooperate with new groups and distribute this dialogue of their multi-week collaboration from outside the walls of the theatres back into them as an artistic result.
The starting point will be a wide variety of encounters with different “bodies”, professional dancers meet amateurs, folklore, sport clubs. In various residencies, the participants develop together try-outs that are performed on site.
The aim is to explore new work techniques, to enter into a dialogue that broadens one's own perspective to the undiscovered. Diversity and joint artistic interplay are the top priority. These encounters will not only become the driving force behind the gestures of this new project but will also expand the glossary work and finally open us up to other ways of moving, where idiosyncrasies, qualities of individual bodies and perspectives come together creating a lively and powerful mesh. The artistic result on stage include all these qualities but pushed to the limits through the skills of professional performers.
