Springback Graduate Marie Pons meets choreographers Aris Papadopoulos & Martha Pasakopoulou to talk about their Aerowaves selected work 'Touching Just' and their creative process.
‘touching.just’ is a rhythmic game dealing with the absurd, awkward and episodic meetings of two characters during their effort to interact and connect. Going through intimate and uncomfortable situations both are looking for their common ground. Just!
Launched last year in Aarhus, 'Meet The Makers' interviews bring together Spring Forward choreographers with emerging dance writers to give you a chance to dive into their creative process. The series is a chance for the Springback Academy graduates to flex their interview skills in short one to one conversations.
Springback Academy offers a unique chance for emerging dance writers to be mentored by professional critics during Spring Forward dance festival. Springback Academy experiments with forms of dance writing and adds an assured quality of debate to dance criticism online.
