Kindling 2016

Same, Same, but Different.

This is a discussion on the DIVERSITY and QUALITY.

Does diversity discusses the differences that there are between people? Does quality mean what a "good" show and, if applicable, as do we assess it? What connection is there between these two terms or ideas? How your personal reality artist or programmer (who you are, where you are, who you work for, what is your target audience, what is the reason you are doing this, etc.) influences-t her or she affects the definition of the variety and / or quality? What our community he has to say about the diversity, inclusion and equity? Why is it the essential diversity in the development of arts for young audiences stage?

 How to make DIVERSITY the SOLUTION, not the question?

An alternative approach to "quality of debate" - Introduction to the dialogue of assessment - presentation with question period

Moderator: Henrik Kohler, Director / Teatercentrum, Denmark

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM - A Soprano

Henrik is back at Kohler IPAY Showcase to present the Danish model of dialogue of appreciation, an approach based on the model "IAN". The model "IAN" examines the interaction between intention, ability and necessity, which are the three key criteria for assessing artistic quality. The flexibility of this model can be applied to works in particular or the general operation of cultural institutions. This model can also serve as a personal evaluation framework in a process of creation or dissemination of a work.


Sharing perspectives, best practices and resources - KITCHEN TABLE

Facilitators: Erwin Maas with the winners of the Jim Rye scholarship

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM - Soprano B

For most people in the community, diversity and inclusion are not new concepts. Still, many people are positioning themselves differently in different discussions. This session "Kitchen Table" begins with the testimony of Rye stock that will tell us what they think promising avenues for diversity and inclusion, and how educational institutions are positioning them vis-à-vis diversity , equity and inclusion in the training of young professionals.

We encourage participants to share their successes, as part of their personal practice and ask questions.


Discuss and apply creative advocacy - KITCHEN TABLE

Facilitators: Rosy Simas, choreographer / artist / facilitator and Nike Jonah

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM - Soprano C

How do we define diversity, inclusion and equity in our midst? How can we draw attention to the nuances within particular communities, that diversity does not become a well capitalized, but rather a thoughtful way to work? How individuals can they models have a positive impact within an organization? How to define quality and relevance, in terms of policy, funding and geographic location?

The Critical Response Process (CRP) is a dynamic assessment process created by Liz Lerman and John Borstel company Dance Exchange (United States). Originally created to facilitate the achievement of a work in progress, this method allows respondents to pay special attention to a work, a performance or a text. Accompanied by a facilitator agent, a group answers to five questions creating an environment in which the judgment is set aside in favor of a development of personal responses to a given work.

Join Shelley Quiala, a certified facilitator (CRP), to explore the performance of the company Djuki Mala (Dancers Chookey) presented in Showcase.

Workshop views * - physical theater exercise to develop attention, presence and self-understanding

Moderator: Erwin Maas

12:30 PM - 2:00 PM - Soprano C

"Every culture is born of hybridity, interaction and confrontation. An isolated civilization, in contrast, tends to die. The experience of the other is the secret of change "(Octavio Paz).

Through a series of physical exercises and improvisations, the "Views" allow to recognize and connect with the body, voice, space and time, to develop a better transmission of stories, feelings, images, music, etc. Learn how this vocabulary and these simple methods can be applied to all the different forms of art. They allow to have a strong presence and the presence as well as part of the arts and outdoors. These drama exercises and improvisation will explore the physical consciousness and the group will provide a basic dynamic that can work with people from different formations and with different artistic practices.
