The P.O.R.C.H. Synthesis Module gathers knowledgeable practitioners and choreographers to offer their perspective on movement and on the role that performance and choreography plays in the here and now. It’s a focused place for research, both for art-making and for communal living. There is space given to widen, soften, refine one’s dance; there is room for making good use of one another as witnesses, audience, playmates; there is space in the studio, in the garden, in the forest, in the water. Mariia Bakalo developed her creative, communicative and coproducing habits through taking part in this educational Synthesis Module.
Besides particular knowledge, skills, methods and approaches in art I got many real social contacts with colleagues from different countries, which could lead to a more complete understanding of the place of art in the world.
