Last stop: Bologna
As part of the residency in Bologna, the artists will work on the concept of Male Gaze, which often influences the aesthetics of paintings, television, films, and advertisings through a demiurgic and objectifying male gaze. The goal is to think about a visual and representation form that integrates masculine and feminine elements, both from the point of view of those acting in the stage and those who are viewing a show. With the guidance of mentor Daniel Kok, the outcomes of the creative process will be presented to the festival audience through an open rehearsal.
The project consists of several work sessions in which choreographers from different countries will share their opinions and experiences: Roberta Racis and Fabio Novembrini (Italy), Daniel Kok (Singapore), Jereh Leung (Singapore), Albert Garcia (Macau) and January Low (Malaysia).
