DANS FUNK 3.0

15 - 17 November 2021

DansFunk 3.0 har som syfte att lyfta den inkluderande scenkonstens betydelse för danskonstens utveckling och ge fler dansare och koreografer med funktionsvariationer möjlighet att utvecklas konstnärligt inom dans.

Under DansFunk 3.0 presenteras ett program som består av internationellt hyllade gästspel, workshoppar, rundabordssamtal, danssnack mm där du får möta dansare och koreografer med och utan funktionsvariationer från Storbritannien, Italien, Grekland, Nederländerna och Sverige. Inom ramen för festivalen arrangeras även den internationella konferensen Beyond Access där vi tittar på olika faktorer och kulturpolitiska strategier som faktiskt gör skillnad både nationellt och internationellt för att skapa en större mångfald av kroppar och identiteter på scen.

Framför allt belyser vi frågan om hur vi skapar möjligheter för att få fler koreografer och dansare med funktionsvariationer att skapa och utvecklas konstnärligt på egna villkor.

Workshoparna är ett samarbete mellan Danscentrum Syd, Skånes Dansteater och Dansalliansen.

Dan Daw has worked with numerous companies around the world. Blurring the divide between theatre and dance, all work Dan commissions through his company Dan Daw Creative Projects, becomes a part of a series of attempts. With his work proposing that “success” and “failure” could possibly be the same thing, he plays, in different ways, with audience expectation in connection to his body’s deviating functionality. Since 2014, Dan has worked as Associate Director to support Sydney-based Artistic Director Sarah-Vyne Vassallo to commission, develop and produce new work by and with disabled and non-disabled artists. He plays a key advisory role in the development and delivery of Murmuration’s artistic programs and community activities Unspoken/Spoken by Fin Walker. Photo of Dan Daw by Camilla Greenwell, 2018

Tanja Erhart, born in Tyrol/Austria, studied in Vienna and graduated her MA as a cultural and social anthropologist in 2012. She specialised in dance, performance and disability studies. Meanwhile she also trained as a contemporary dancer with AXIS Dance Company (USA), Candoco Dance Company (UK), Adam Benjamin, Sonja Browne, Vera Rebl, Michael Turinsky and other artists in Vienna. In 2014 Tanja joined Candoco as a professional dancer for three years. She toured, performed and taught inclusive dance practice in countries like the UK, Switzerland, South Korea, Mexico, Africa and many more. Currently Tanja is a disabled, independent dance artist and cultural scientist based in London exploring her interests of physical, emotional, mental well-being as well as the interconnectedness of being an artist and a citizen of the world.

Claire Cunningham  is a performer and creator of multi-disciplinary performance based in Glasgow, Scotland. A recent Factory Artist with Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Germany she is also an Affiliate Artist with The Place, London.

One of the UK’s most acclaimed and internationally renowned disabled artists, Cunningham’s work is often rooted in the study and use/misuse of her crutches and the exploration of the potential of her own specific physicality with a conscious rejection of traditional dance techniques (developed for non- disabled bodies).  This runs alongside a deep interest in the lived experience of disability and its implications not only as a choreographer but also in terms of societal notions of knowledge, value, connection and interdependence.

Festivalen pågår den 11-21 november 2021 på Skånes Dansteater i Malmö.

Den internationella konferensen ligger den 18 november på Skånes Dansteater. Välkommen till dansteatern eller ta del av den via streaming.
