- Amarre - festival
Amarre is a programme that explores presence through a series of performative works and encounters designed to conjure specific thoughts and sensations. The programme will be two-fold: a study group and practitioners participating or connected to the programme; and a public gathering with performances and workshops.
“Through contemporary choreography and dance, Amarre will delve into modes of embodiment; exploring the different ways we materialise somatic forms of knowledge and bring forward bodily textures and intensities. Together, we will think about the haptic as a deeply felt and visceral register, a vital zone of experimentation as well as a kind of rehearsal that amplifies the social histories ingrained in our bodies.” Andrea Rodrigo
Amarre is curated by Andrea Rodrigo, an independent curator from Spain invited to do a program from MDT.
The detailed program will be released later this year.
