25 – 28 Oct 2022
Rosenberg Dance/Research Festival
In cooperation with Institute of Dance Arts (IDA)
Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität Oberösterreich, Linz (Austria)
Koordination: Rose Breuss & Damián Cortés Alberti

with international guests from Argentina, Germany, France, India, Romania, South Korea, Ukraine and USA.
A cooperation with CID – International Dance Council, Austrian Korean Cultural Year, the Austrian Science Fund FWF, Posthof Linz and Red Sapata Linz.
The spotlight of the festival, which is being held for the first time at the Anton Bruckner Private University, is on dancers from an international dance community and their current artistic research projects. Classical discourse and performance formats will be expanded by lecture performances and ateliers that reveal and discuss the theoretical foundations of dance practices. Contemporary dance proves to be a multiply networked, “nomadic” milieu that is paradigmatic for contemporary artistic creation in its historically founded but underestimated internationality.

Atelier: Shifting and Morphing. Skills of Artistic Displays: Dance, Choreography …
In cooperation with Institute of Dance Arts (IDA)
Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität Oberösterreich, Linz (Austria)
Konzept + Realisierung: Rose Breuss, Claudia Jeschke, Andreas Backoefer

The Cambridge Dictionary paraphrases the verb ‘to morph’ with “to gradually change, or change someone or something, from one thing to another”. Highlighting the metaphoric quality of the transitory as well as transient connotation of the term, the object-based ‘morphing’ brings about – as does the time-based ‘shifting’ – untried strategies and fresh artistic procedures that are operationalized as well as contextualized in the multiple (and distinct) media transformations of e.g. doing dancing and/or video art.
Thus, the laboratory format of the artistic-academic Atelier intends to understand morphing and shifting as dynamic converters of knowledge production in body/movement-related arts by embracing experiments with and strategies of agency, experience and visualization in movement research, scoring, historiography, praxeology… The Atelier asks about the peculiarity of non-discursive practices of thought in (dance) arts, their aesthetic obstinacy and their own validity.
