IMPACT09 invites artists, practitioners, theoreticians and advanced students from the areas of dance, theatre, art, new media and architecture to take part in a symposium which explores artistic strategies and critical methods in equal terms of practice and theoretical reflection and discussion.
Romeo Castellucci, artistic director of the theatre company Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, challenges perceptions and questions the human condition in overwhelming physical imagery that is at once magical, haunting and taboo breaking. Architects Ana Dzokic and Marc Neelen / STEALTH.unlimited make interaction between people, urban space and social phenomena visible and sketch visions for future architecture. Berlin make sensitive, insightful and precisely researched documentary-like city portraits which cast a revealing look at society today.

Présentation Essais

La formation Essais allie le développement d’une pratique artistique autonome à un travail de recherche avec des artistes invités. L’année est ainsi ponctuée de sessions d’ateliers menées par ces artistes (Lia Rodrigues en janvier 2009, Akira Kasai en avril 2009) et de temps de recherches personnelles. Les essayistes sont guidés tout au long de leur formation par les artistes chorégraphiques Jennifer Lacey et Nuno Bizarro.

Les neufs essayistes de cette troisième promotion entament cet automne une dernière phase de travail d’un mois avec Vincent Dupont, comédien de formation puis chorégraphe explorant une « dramaturgie de la perception ». Il a créé Incantus en résidence de création au CNDC en 2007.

Cette dernière session de travail avec Vincent Dupont aboutira, après un temps de recherches personnelles, à une dernière école ouverte les 14 et 15 décembre 2009.

The Essais programme allies the development of an autonomous artistic practice to work in research with guest artists who help laying out and structuring their own work. The year is split into different segments including workshops with these guest artists (Lia Rodrigues en January 2009, Akira Kasai in April 2009) as well as time for personal research. The essay-ists are guided during these research periods and throughout the programme by the choreographic artists Jennifer Lacey and Nuno Bizarro.

The nine “essay-ists” of this third class will this fall work for their final work session for a month, with Vincent Dupont, who trained as an actor but is also a choreographer exploring a “dramaturgy of perception.” During a creative residency at the CNDC in 2007, he createdIncantus.

This final work session with Vincent Dupont will culminate, after another personal research period, to an “open school” event onDecember 14 and 15, 2009.
