Starting with an overview and the highlights in the evolution of dance – from Greek drama and Aristophanes to Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and Keith Haring's dancing figures – this new workshop invites you to explore the intersection of the visual arts and dance, creating a different art piece each time, inspired by a dance-themed artwork.
The Birds: The language of birds
July is dedicated to Aristophanes and his comedy The Birds, which narrates the tale of two friends who leave Athens in pursuit of a new city. They find it in Nubicuculia, the land of birds.Drawing inspiration from Aristophanes’ play, we will explore the symbolism of birds in painting and dance, and use it to create our own art using common, everyday materials.
