ChoreoComp 2022

15-20 August 2022

Charles has been selected to participate to the first edition of ChoreoComp, an intensive 6 days programme focusing on composing for dance.

“ChoreoComp is an intensive six-day course for choreographers and composers who are interested in (speed) creating movement and music with live musicians and dancers. Choreographers and composers should be able to make fast decisions, able to improvise, able to work together/communicate clearly with the musicians and dance ensemble and be practical when it comes to producing strategies.

After receiving an artistic assignment in the morning, the three composers and choreographers will pair up every two days to work out a concept. Composers will work independent on these concepts together with their musicians in their studios in Amare while the choreographers work with dancers in the dance studios.” (read more)
