It is very important to keep dance and music relationship alive as human touch. Because this knowledge is very easy to disappear - musician and dancer need practice together, to share together. Other-ways we jump into world of new technology, touching the screens and forget to listen-touch this space created together and it can happen that we exist parallel but in different universe.
Participators from Tallinn University were Katre Sabbal, Kärt Kurvits, Sandra Pōld, Nastasia Masalova, Tuuli Pruul, Tuuliki Villand and you can read feedback to workshop from their Raport. Students visit was supported by “Explorations and Collaborations in the Arts / The ECA Network” mobility grants.
