FACETS Residency, Bangalore/India
Marcel Zaes has been invited by Pro Helvetia India to participate as a mentor for composition/sound in FACETS.
FACETS International Choreography Residency programme, organised by Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, Bengaluru will offer emerging choreographers, primarily from South Asia, an inter-disciplinary approach to develop new work and/or further develop their existing work. The participants will undergo a five-week long intense training while being mentored by adept and internationally acclaimed experts including choreographers, light designers, composers, theatre directors and digital artists. The residency will work as a collective with common technique/ skill sharing sessions, feedback forums, with production rehearsals to meet each choreographer's individual needs. This presents the scope for group devising during this period.
FACETS 2017 will be held from 2 January to 2 February 2017 in Bengaluru, India. During the Residency the choreographers will create/ develop original dance pieces be premiered at the Attakkalari India Biennial 2017 (3 to 12 February, 2017) that follows FACETS 2017. In addition to general public and dance enthusiasts, the attendees of the festival will include international delegates comprising of festival directors, presenters and the media.
Some selected works from the Residency might be considered for further development and/or for performances in other Indian cities.
