What is BAU Lab?
BAU Lab focuses on expanding artistic practice through interdisciplinary
collaborations. It explores at the highest level the collaboration between the
independent performing arts and other disciplines such as music, technology,
visual arts or architecture. Using a structured working process, professionals
engage in intensive discussions, share their expertise and experiment. All of this
under the supervision of experts.
Ropes Aligned and Isabel Cordeiro
The focus of this year's masterclass is gravity, both as a subject and as a physical
experience. By interweaving reading sessions on the subject and movement
sessions in suspension, we aim to create the conditions for participants to
establish their personal and bodily relationship to gravity.
Our starting point will be the first attempts to understand gravity by the Greek
philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC). Aristotle claimed that the four elements -
earth, water, air and fire - gravitate towards the centre of the universe according
to their weight. The centre of the universe, conveniently located beneath his feet.
Moving away from Aristotle's geocentric view of the universe, we ask participants
to venture into an unknown space. To redefine and construct a new space by
subjecting it to their own interpretation.
BAU Lab '23 takes place under the guidance of vertical dancers Ropes Aligned
(Suzanne de Bekker and Natasja Bode) and visual artist Isabel Cordeiro.
BAU Lab runs with a max of 16 participants.
