[festival] LocoMotion 3: Space for Dialogue / October 15-23 / Skopje


October 15-23

Youth Cultural Centre (YCC) - Quay Dimitar Vlahov bb, 1000 Skopje, Macedonia
State Music and Ballet School Center Ilija Nikolovski Luj (DMBUC) - Pitu Guli 1, 1000 Skopje, Macedonia

Locomotion 3 under the title ‘Space for dialogue’ this year emphasizes the need for discourse on the scene between authors, actors, stage, public as well as those who come to a decision for the development of the arts. There is a need for a dialogue. This dialogue will allow critical reflection of the current circumstances in which art is orginised and produced. In addition it’ll consider how the festivals format can intervene in its improvement.

This year programme contains several aspects such as collaboration (the pre-event [T.I.M.E.] on October 6th and the Movework - talk-shop on dance and dramaturgy from October 15th to 20th); education for young dancers from the State Music and Ballet School Centre Ilija Nikolovski-Luj and the Faculty for Ballet Pedagogy/Department for Contemporary Dance (the workshop held by Maud Liardon on October 15th ), regional and international programme (the performance MOVE-AS/Stories of the Body 4 from Slovenia, ARNICA 9CH (my life as a dancer) from Switzerland on October 16th, and Surprised body from Norway/Italy on October 20th) and the special programme dedicated to young Macedonian authors on October 23rd in which we as programme editors were not trying to select but to provide a platform where these young authors could present their latest works to the audience.
