Tennis Warm-up with Bobalik

24. 7. (Friday): 10.00 h., Stanica, Pod Rondlom
experiential discussion

 

On Friday morning come and tune into Bobalik’s tennis rhythm. At first you sway slowly, jump easily and gradually you may serve the ball (and maybe not). Step by step from sport action you will turn to  asking questions. What initially looked like a traditional warm-up will eventually become a collective insight into the dancer’s mind. Tennis saved him from burnout, now we’ll see what tennis saves you from.

Experiential discussion:

Every single performance is a unique universe existing at least for a while for each spectator, during its duration and sometimes even after. The artist has lived in it for a long time. However, no one can guarantee him / her that the viewer will share and perceive the same world as him / her. At Kiosk, we have been looking for a long time for ways how to immerse deeper in the performative world, how to understand it and grasp it rationally; physically and mentally. However, the discussions became empty for both artists and spectators. But since everyone is calling for discussions and meetings, we try to set a different concept.

We invite you to a series of three “workshops” where artists will work with the audience using the methods they use in their performances. Warming up, rehearsing, sharing parts of a show directly, or “staying” in songs. To have the opportunity to fully understand the world of the performance, through reasoning, through direct physical or mental experience.
