BARCO Dance collection is a project curated and performed by Dinis Machado. This is a collection of dances developed by choreographers invited by Dinis. Dinis’ brief for the choreographers was to consider that the space where the dances happen is not the room performed in but the space of the body itself.
Over the duration of his residency at Metal Dinis has invited 3 choreographers, including Rebecka Stillman, to work with him to add to the collection of ten dances. Rebecka is encouraging Dinis to gaze to his past or existing dance knowledge and find the unfamiliar space within or beside it. This one-hour workshop with Rebecka will share some of the methods she used with Dinis and take inspiration from his solos.
