Welcome to Y Choreography - the choreographic festival of HAUT.
The festival runs 25th-27th of October and here you can experience choreographers and artists share their work-in-progress pieces, run workshops, do talks as well as invite audiences into the experimental space of the artistic process. In addition to all that, we give you a taste of what is happening outside of Denmark with the international opening performance Multiverse.
This year’s festival poses the question “Y Choreography”? We do this by investigating how choreographic thinking positions itself today. Simultaneously the question works as a comment on the current situation in Copenhagen, where choreographic art is lacking space for choreographic creation and presentation. With this year’s festival, we want to promote choreographic art and therefore say “that’s why!” to the question of “Y Choreography”?
Y Choreography has been developed and curated by three choreographic artists - Linette Stamp Christensen, Simone Wierød and Naja Lee Jensen. The festival is a relaunch of the previous choreographic platform at HAUT: Young Choreographers - the Festival. While previous festivals focused solely on the young choreographers, this year’s festival will aim to create a platform driven by the synergy between young choreographers and more seasoned artists. Simultaneously the festival creates an opportunity for artistic professionals from other disciplines to share their choreographic visions as well as answers to “Y Choreography” through interdisciplinary collaborations.

Eksil is the residency for artistic development at HAUT. Here we give performing artists, who are based in Denmark, time and space to immerse themselves in artistic experiments. During this year’s Y Choreography the audience can follow two artists creating in their 24 hours of Eksil, or enjoy the culmination of one week of Eksil for three performing arts’ collectives by watching their work-in-progress showings. After each showing, there will be a Sharing Praxis conversation with the artists.
ABOUT THE WORKS
Saturday 26/10 at 10:30-12:00
Embodied Voice workshop
Stage: Lille scene
You will gain an insight into the embodied voice methods developed for the performance UUUH, which will be shown in the evening on the same day as the workshop. The workshop is framed by an interest in how gender is perceived through sound and is contextualised through a historical context of the siren.
We will practice new ways of being together through sounding, listening and moving together.
Our voice practices are founded in Lichtenberger® applied voice physiology and is a way to listen and follow the voice rather than following a pre-notion of how to sound.
Everyone is welcome and it is not required that you already have a movement and voice practice. Bring clothes you can move in.
(About the artist:) The workshop will be lead by Anna Fitoussi and Kai Merke.
Saturday 26/10 at 13:00-15:00
On nurturing work-in-progress
Stage: Lille scene
What does it mean to be an institution facilitating work-in-progress pieces? In an attempt to broaden our horizon, HAUT has invited sister organisations from abroad to share their vision on their work on the artistic process/working with artistic processes/the work with artistic processes.
(About the panel:)Among others the panel consists of representatives from Inter Arts Center Malmø and Workspacebrussels.
