A Blind Date? 2010

Put a choreographer and a composer together and instruct them to make a presentation within two weeks, from scratch, based on a theme. That is, in short, the purpose of the yearly workshop called A Blind Date? This is also organised this year.

The participating choreographers and composers are students from Rotterdam Dance Academy and Utrecht School of Music and Technology. For Rotterdam Dance Academy the fourth-year students of the Bachelor of Dance programme, specialisation Choreography take part: Gizem Bilgen, Rita Soeiro, Guillermo Blinker and Chun-ho Lam.

The students work in groups. During the workshop are a few miniperformances before a so called feedback team, which consists of guest teachers. This team judges the interaction between the students and the contents of the productions, among others. With the presentation on February 11 2010 in the Theaterzaal of the Codarts building at Kruisplein the students conclude the workshop.

Augusto Meijer collaborated with Guillermo Blinker.
This years theme was “contemporarily”.
What if a person got caught up in a loop, somewhere between his life and death? This idea is explored and exposed in a 12 minute performance.
Above this tekst, you can watch a short excerpt from the performance.
