Do you remember that time we were together and danced this or that dance? (try-out) by Clara Amaral
7 – 10 December 2017
In conversation with
Lana Čoporda, Loïc Perela, Magda Widlak, Ofir Yudilevitch, Serge Amoussou-guenou, and Yang Zhen
Learned by heart by
Clara Amaral and Loïc Perela
To remember a dance by remembering the counts, the space, the feeling. Also, the sweat, the steps and context; to remember the memory of what we remember dancing, the ones that we danced with or imagined while dancing. To remember a dance that we never really danced. Dancing as a fake title, an imagination, fantasy and fiction.
This performance presents a publication. Instead of the printed form, this
publication was learned by heart by two performers and it is transmitted through an embodied memory. The publication will be delivered in one on one session with the duration of 30 minutes each.
Timeslots to be announced!
Studied Choreography at the SNDO (2009-2013).
Currently doing a Master at the Dutch Art Institute in Arnhem.
Clara Amaral worked consistently and faithfully with language since her studies at the SNDO.
After graduating Clara Amaral dived in the universe of objects, specifically the relation between electronic objects and the female body. The work Low Tech was the result of this research.
With her most recent works- A Lecture in II parts and Do you remember that time we were together and danced this or that dance? Clara Amaral returns to language.
Currently while writing and thinking Clara Amaral is interested in the flow of relations between theory and literature and how to practice permeability between both. In Amsterdam her work has been presented in Frascati and Dansmakers.
