Forum dans #9 Dancing Archives with Janne-Camilla Lyster, Solveig Styve Holte, Rosalind Goldberg and Eszter Salamon
Dancing Archives is an artist talk with Janne-Camilla Lyster, Solveig Styve Holte, Rosalind Goldberg, and Eszter Salamon in conversation with Per Roar.
Forum Dans#9 Dancing Archives has two parts:
Part one (17:00-18:00)
“Two solos and a conversation based on Not Eshkol’s work” by Janne-Camilla Lyster and Solveig Styve Holte
Lyster and Holte developed both a solo based on the life and work of the Israeli choreographer Noa Eshkol during the autumn of 2022: “Time and solitude” (Lyster) and “Undying – a handwork” (Holte). The solos were created as moving objects for museum and gallery spaces and were presented at the National Museum in Oslo (18.09) and at Norrköping’s Art Museum (23-24.09) as part of the exhibition “Noa Eshkol: Rules, Theory & Passion”.
In Forum Dans #9, Holte and Lyster will present these short solos as movement objects, share information about Noa Eshkol’s life and work, and discuss the use of choreographic methods when encountering archival material and ways to document and share the solos outside their original context.
Part two (18:00-19:00)
“A conversation on Artistic Research and Archives” with Eszter Salamon, Rosalind Goldberg, Janne-Camilla Lyster, Solveig Styve Holte, and Per Roar (moderator).
This last part is a moderated conversation on the relationship between artistic research and the requirement to document and store artistic research results in a permanent form, and about the role and function of the archive and archiving in artistic research. By referring to various forms of traces that their respective artistic research projects are creating, the panelists will also discuss what artistic research may produce for future dance artists and the field.
