HAUT is thrilled to present our new format - FOCUS ON - a ‘Cross-aesthetic Workshop’ - a network-creating meeting place for the artistic disciplines in the performing arts, which are rarely in the spotlight.
We’ll test this new knowledge-sharing format when a group of international experienced light designers and their project ‘Reflecting Light’ enters the residency.
FOCUS ON is where mutual artistic exchange and inspiration can abound within the professional groups that rarely get the opportunity for artistic development. The goal is that the workshops can give the professional groups greater artistic independence and thereby motivate a higher degree of cross-aesthetic collective processes that challenge the usual work hierarchies.
The workshop-format is part of the test run supported by Bikubenfonden and The Danish National School of Performing Arts will host the workshop.
Reflecting Light is a four year artistic and collective research project funded by KASK/School of Arts, in collaboration with Kunstencentrum Buda. The goal of the project is to build and elaborate on a collective discourse amongst lighting designers and to explore ways in which this discourse can feed the conversation and collaboration within the broader performing arts field in all its diversity.
Involved in the research are:
Bram Coeman (artistic coördinator for artscentre Buda), Geert Belpaeme (performing artist), Emese Csornai (light designer), Henri Emmanule Doublier (light designer), Jan Fedinger (visual artist, designer), Tomi Humalisto (light designer, professor, researcher), Jan Maertens (light designer), Bruno Pocheron (light designer, technical director, set/sound designer), Minna Tiikainen (lightning- and set designer) and Ezra Veldhuis (visual artist, light designer, scenographer).
