This is a second edition of this project and this year it will be a part of the project “Embodied ideas. Performing arts program of first avant-garde reinterpretation” which aims to develop cultural heritage of the first European avant-garde in the community of performative arts.

During everyday activities laboratory programme participants will practice dance and movement techniques. From the beginning they will take part in physical activities in public and natural spaces. On the basis of personal experience and inspirations related to different outdoor spaces and avant-garde concepts participants will develop actions, which will be incorporated into a final presentation during the International Festival Unity in Sochaczew.

Leading subject of International Laboratories of Movement and Dance will be the heritage of European avant-garde.

We will analyze the artists’ work in relation to natural spaces and social movements that took place in Central Europe, in particular in the Visegrad countries after World War I or in the interwar years. Following artists’ heritage will be inspiration for lab work: Polish sculpturer Katarzyna Kobro, Czech painter and drafter Toyen, Slovak painter and drafter Viera Kraicova and Slovak neo avant-garde artist Jana Žeblinská, Hungarian poet, novelist, painter and theoretician Lajos Kassák.
