Out of the Ordinary
From 2021 to 2024 ICK will collaborate intensively with Artist Associate Eric Minh Cuong Castaing and his company SHONEN. In order to explore professional, amateur and out-of-the-ordinary bodies in all their diversity, the Vietnamese/French visual artist and choreographer will develop three research projects from which performances, installations and films will emerge.
All three projects are being developed in France and the Netherlands, as much as possible in cooperation with local care institutions and special schools. Each project is accompanied by a specific workshop programme. ICK documents the knowledge acquired during the creative processes with vulnerable target groups. Researchers at the MA Dance Therapy in Rotterdam are creating a model for better physical interaction between the target group and, for example, family members and care providers.
The projects are categorised as follows:
- Forme(s) de Vie. Performance and exhibition with dancers and adults with loss of mobility.
- L'Age D'Or. Film and performance with dancers and children with physical disabilities.
- Infante. Choreographic piece at the intersection of dance, concert and video art, with children between 7 and 12 years old.
