This masterclass will provide an opportunity to approach the repertoire of the choreographer and director, Gisèle Vienne and discover her work from the materials of her new creation CROWD.

Between motion and cinematographic writing: a new choreographic language offers an excellent possibility to discover Vienne’s work through the materials of Crowd: stillness, living picture, still motion and disassembled movement.

In connection with the performances at Dansens hus, Dansalliansen arranges a meeting with the choreographer assisted by her choreographic assistant Nuria Guiu Sagarra.
