The ArchiveLab first edition will take place place between May 13th and 18th 2024, in Cologne, in the frame of CircusDanceFestival, in collaboration with Deutsches Tanzarchiv Köln.

The term “archive” is understood as collection of different materials from the past and present (such as physical practices, theoretical texts, visual documents and also objects), which relate to the field of performing arts.
During the laboratory you will have time and space to engage with, reflect on and react to the corpus of material. By participating you will develop your own artistic and/or reflective approach and make it productive for your future practice, furthermore you will expand your physical and discursive knowledge. The laboratory closes with a presentation of the individual research results.

The ArchiveLab is led by Dr. Mirjam Hildbrand and Dr. des. Johanna Hilari, both Dramaturges and Dance/Theatre Researchers from Switzerland. They bring vast experience in interweaving methods and methodologies of critical theory with artistic practices and processes.
