MEET THE CHOREOGRAPHERS
with: Gloria Höckner, Venetsiana Kalampaliki, Clarissa Sacchelli
Hosted by: Eva Broberg
Gloria Höckner, Venetsiana Kalampaliki and Clarissa Sacchelli have been in Hamburg for eight months to work and research. The productions that are the result of this time only represent a part of their work and form one public glimpse into their interests. The event Meet the choreographers gives professionals a chance to catch another insight into their methods and past, present and future works. After ten minutes presentations - shaped and choreographed by the artists - there will be time for questions.
This event is only for professionals. You can register here.
is an artist working in and on dance. She has been developing her projects moving between choreographic pieces, performances, publications and educational activities, whilst also working in collaboration with other artists. Her practice has been informed by the experience of living and working predominantly in the Latin-American context. She holds an MA in Dance from Trinity Laban (UK) and a postgraduate diploma in Semiotics from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (BR).
During her residency at K3, Clarissa proposes to explore the concept of care as a speculative choreographic practice. She is interested in what happens to the body and to dance when we pay attention to the question of how to care. Searching for bodies that defy gravity, neither vertical nor horizontal, that are leaning themselves to others in a vulnerable position. She will investigate how a practice based on being out of one’s own axis is capable of bringing people and other beings together in an interdependent relation.
(they/them) deals with the relationship of the body to technology and power-structures. They explores the principle of hacking and the potential of glitch - disturbances in the system. Gloria's pieces have been performed at festivals such as Performing Arts Festival Berlin, Balance Club / Culture Festival Leipzig, and Out Now! Bremen. After studying Theatre, Film and Media and Performance Studies, Gloria was invited to residencies at Seoul Dance Center, K3 (Limited Edition) and Nave in Santiago de Chile.
As part of a transdisciplinary research process during the residency at K3, which links digital and analogue practices, Gloria appropriates surveillance technologies and systems that use ‘artificial intelligence’ to ‘recognise’ human emotions in order to develop alternative bodies, images and narratives. Their research touches upon questions of self-determination about one‘s own body and the data that is produced by it.
is a dancer and choreographer based in Athens. She is a graduate of the School of Economics and Political Sciences of the University of Athens and the Greek National School of Dance and continues her research with a Master in Fine Arts at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Her collaborations extend in the fields of contemporary dance, digital and visual arts, performance and disability arts alongside the development of her personal artistic practice. Her latest project Re-call was presented at the 7th New Choreographers Festival of the Onassis Stegi, the Holland Dance Festival and is currently on tour.
During her K3 residency, Venetsiana aims to develop methodologies that consider accessibility from the beginning of an artistic process and make use of the specific aesthetic qualities. Observing links between accessibility, the city and the cultural scene in terms of participation, she will focus on the urban area in order to become familiar with the variety of needs and desires of mixed audience members.
