Nov. 30. Sparkling Conversations: Informal conversations on dance and choreography

Sparkling Conversations: Informal conversations on dance and choreography initiated and moderated by Carima Neusser.

On November 30 we invite you who work with dance and choreography to this years third occasion of intimate dialogue evenings. These evenings start with an artist talk with artists from the international dance field, followed by questions and an open discussion. For this evening, Rasmus Ölme has been invited.

The idea is that these presentations can lead us into new topics, questions and reflections on our artistic practices and work. The initiative comes from a desire to enrich the dance field with perspectives on dance and choreography that differ from established way of talking about dance and choreography. With the dialogues, we want to create greater artistic diversity and new forms of discussion about dance.

The talks can also be seen as a response to a longing for artistic discussions that can take place collectively and that can strengthen our community as artists and open up new meetings and networks. We want to create a place for fruitful exchanges that focus on art and the artistic directly and without self-censorship. We will discuss everything from dance, choreography, process, the inexhaustible potential of our bodies, the unknown within us and life itself. We want to initiate meetings that draw inspiration from our artistic visions, desires, reflections and above all our curiosity about the body, dance and choreography.

We shape the evening together!

The talks are open to practitioners of dance and choreography and artists who work with the body and movement and take place in Weld’s studio.

After a career as a free-lance dancer, based in Brussels (BE), Rasmus Ölme founded the production unit REFUG in 2001 through which he produced and toured several works throughout Europe until 2008, as he moved back to Sweden and started a PhD in choreography at Uniarts (SE). Rasmus successfully defended the doctoral thesis From Model to Module in 2014 and in January 2015 he was appointed head of education at the Dance and Choreography program at the National Danish School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen. Subsequently (2019), he was appointed professor and acts today as head of program for the BFA in Dance and Choreography and the MFA in Choreography, as well as head of research. Currently he is running the research project An Indiscernible Zone, funded by the Danish Ministry of Culture, and preparing a new work for stage, premiering in February 2024. Parallel to the work as dancer and choreographer Rasmus has taught extensively throughout the world at festivals, companies, educations, and professional studios.
