12noon-6pm: open rehearsal / 7.30pm: ‘Offshore in Bilbao (A Rehearsal) performance / La Fundición, Bilbao (Francisco Maciá, 1–3) / The rehearsal is preceded by a workshop at Bulegoa z/b on Monday 23 October.
Sitting somewhere between a happening, an occupation, a programmation and a book synopsis, Cally Spooner will be presenting a rehearsal at the BAD Dance Festival in Bilbao for a project that will later premiere in November 2017 at Playground festival in Leuven. Since 2015 Cally Spooner has been probing the connections between social, economic, biological and neuronal organisation, thereby coming closer to staging a question: how to imagine new conditions and terms for a performing company, a corporate company or the company of ohers per se, in 2017?
At the BAD Dance Festival in Bilbao Spooner will be bringing core members of the company to run a public rehearsal and a workshop, followed by a live rehearsal. Through readings, body movements and music, they will endeavour to understand how they might remain close, and yet independently un-synced.
Cally Spooner’s presentation in Bilbao is produced in collaboration with the Bilbao BAD Festival
