Where:
Milvus Artistic Research Center, Gladeholm, Kivik 27735

What:

“Reflective Nebula”, with choreographer Peter Mills, is both an educational and artistic exploration of community.

Inclusion in a community shapes what one values and the choices one makes. A focus on the movements that shape these communities, micro and macro, can better inform us how and where our value is formed and shaped. “Reflective Nebula” is a two-part project hosted by Rachel Tess and Milvus Artistic Research Center in Kivik. The project employs reflective choreographic practices during encounters with specific communities to demonstrate how community functions and reveal how systems of value are produced.

During the 2 hour encounter we will dialogue over a simple meal served on site at MARC. After dinner we will perform creative tasks in a fast paced playful manner. We will work together, sharing a creative task or outcome and then copy each other with an emphasis on creativity itself, rather than form or skill. The exploration is guided by different means: verbal, kinesics, written and audio. We dance, act, paint, write, dream, observe, and respond. We spend time following different paths of creativity, asking ourselves “Where do we want to go?” and “What interests us?”

This encounter will be followed by a 48 hour performance in January, 2015 by Peter Mills and collaborators. We are pleased to invite you to see the beginnings of a creative process, and to engage in a project where your participation directly influences the choreographic outcome. Please join us for this unique opportunity.
