VIENNA, Austria, June 6, 2011 -

- Interdisciplinary Seminar on Theory and Practice of Celerity, Duration
and Space

The International ChoreoLab Austria (ICLA) - a cooperation project of
Danube University Krems with Tanz Atelier Wien - invites dancers,
choreographers as well as protagonists from various disciplines to
participate in the seminar "(E)MOTION FREQUENCY_deceleration". Focusing on an
expanded understanding of choreography, which links theoretical excursions
and performative training, it will take place from August 27th to September
in the heart of Europe.

Interdisciplinarity between Science, Art and Culture

Created by choreographer and dancer Sebastian Prantl - director of Tanz
Atelier Wien - the concept deals with the challenge of an adaptable seminar
structure. Being the first education in Austria in the field of choreography,
ICLA uses the synergy of two institutions to question the mechanisms of
knowledge transfer and fill a relevant gap in the education system.

In the face of 21st century society, which is shaped by constant
acceleration, this year's module will map out a new outlook on choreographic
framework conditions. Among other things, lectures, discussions and bodywork
will raise the issue of how substantial changes in dealing with time can be
achieved in the sense of deceleration, and what the role of the performative
arts and science will be.

Renowned International Faculty

In addition to choreographers and artists the renowned faculty includes
experts from the fields of architecture, sociology, pedagogy, movement
studies, communication and media theory. Focusing on a current issue,
founding protagonist of Japanese butoh Yoshito Ohno will travel to Austria to
celebrate deceleration. Directed by Sebastian Prantl, the seminar takes place
at the unique atmosphere of the campus of Danube University Krems.
