Inclusion in dance art will be the theme of the 5th event of the Slovak-Norwegian Cultural Matching initiative. The part of the event will be a live stream of the performance “Mirage”.
Norwegian director and choreographer Tine Fossmo research inclusion through contemporary dance and will talk about the international project Allegiance and the performances called “exclusion: RACISM” and “exclusion: MENTAL HEALTH”. Choreographer Katarína Rampáčková will talk about her experience with the inclusion through the performance Mirage, which arose from the cooperation of Košice’s PST – Space of Contemporary Dance and the Finnish dance company Kaaos Company. Mirage is inspired by the works of the Catalan artist Joan Miró. Joan Miró + image = MIRAGE. Dancers Georgie Goater, Siiri Tiilka with Down syndrome, and Noora Västinen with a physical disability will perform there. The co-organizer of the online stream within the Move festival is Kino Úsmev.
