Unexpected Dresses for Undefined Ceremonies (textile-performance LAB) 6-11 December. ReMo\/Hobelasai
About the workshop:
‘Unexpected dresses for undefined ceremonies’ is an experimental workshop where textile construction and choreographic research meet. A space to interweave ideas and generate connections based on the narrative of clothing and the potential of the body. A versatile workshop for performers, dancers, choreographers, set designers, visual artists, architects and anyone interested in the crossing of readings between body and material as a system of creation.
The experience seeks to create micro performance politics that reinforce social and cooperative identity; recognizing the practices of Neo-liberal production, subject to the creation of needs and the imposition of prices, fashions and products.
The workshop will lead to a performance at the end and has the following phases:
– Introduction to the sewing machine and manual processes of immediate textile transformation.
– Research and construction of the image on the body.
– Research and construction of the image in space, fabric and scenography.
– Physical and conceptual research.
– Creation and textual development from the garments created.
– Spatial and real-time composition; collective geometries. Development of multiple attentions.

-Improvisation patterns.
– Implementation and a performance at the last evening of the workshop.

Javier Murugarren / Hobelasai (Basque country / The Netherlands)
His work is based on choreographic experimentation, bringing movement together with textiles, sound and language. His practice is strongly rooted in the “reuse” of materials and ideas; the reinterpretation of old items, waste and concepts. His work has been shown in venues such as Royal Palace, Tropenmuseum, Stedelijk museum (netherlands). Saatchi Gallery and V&A Museum (London), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Casa Encendida (Madrid), Idans (Istanbul) and Ozora (Hungary) among many others.
He is a founding member of Instant collective (2006), an Amsterdam based improvisation group. He founded and curates studio ReMo: a performance research center in the north of Amsterdam. He is an Amnesty International activist.
