30. March. 2021 08:00 (GMT) Coffee Session 
What do we know about Dance for Young Audiences and what is still a mystery? Why do we define our work as “Dance”, as opposed to “Theatre” or “Performance Art”? Is that distinction even important? Join Nicola Elliott and Alfredo Zinola for this Coffee Session as we thrash out these ideas from opposite ends of the globe. Through talking to artists from The Young Dance Network, and getting your input, we’ll be teasing out ideas on this topic and hearing different voices in preparation for a wider conference at the official launch of The Young Dance Network.
 
Format: Online via Zoom
Duration: 1,5 Hours

30. March. 2021 14:00 (GMT) Round Table Dramaturgy in Dance for Young Audiences
Contemporary Dance Art for Young Audiences is at an early stage of development. In conversations about Dance productions, colleagues often demand a conversation about quality and express the need for an exchange on dramaturgy – but it does not seem clear what exactly should be talked about. Existing reflections and discussions are limited to just a few often repeated topics, such as the “abstract vs. narration” debate, or how Dance dramaturgy links to Theatre-based dramaturgy. Working in Dance for Young Audiences means grappling with seemingly unorganised and unprocessed questions about methodology, self-image, working methods, transferability of other discipline’s bodies of knowledge, and the specifics of Dance as an Art form (can Dance be made specifically for young audiences or is dance ageless?). We want to initiate a conversation about these topics. We start with sharing our questions and our different approaches: How do you work? Are there Dance or other traditions you refer to? What is your understanding of dramaturgy? Do you need a dramaturg to work with? Doing so will help us to get to know each other and to broaden our collective perspectives.
 
Format: Online via Zoom
Duration: 45 Minutes
Moderation: Gabi Dan Droste & Sanja Frühwald
