Ancient Future Solo
Workshop presentation for adolescents

How can eight, very different dance solos lead to a collective choreography? How does a creative process change when investing in togetherness and co-existence? What constitutes a team? Such are the questions raised by this performance serving as a sequel to Ancient Future Solo, the dance workshop for adolescents held by the Festival during the winter season, as part of the Open Plan initiative. If the eight teenage participants delved into Sophocles’ Antigone and Euripides’ Helen in the first nine workshop meetings, drawing on their personal aesthetics and following the rules dictating the creation of an individual work, they will now work together to create a collective original work, incorporating their idiosyncratic solos into the end result.
