Latvian artists in The Baltic Bubble in Tallinn

09/16/2012

In mid-September 2012, the Baltic dance platform, The Baltic Bubble, will bring to Tallinn together a selection of the most remarkable contemporary dance creators of the Baltic States with the wish to give the audience an insight to the hallmarks of the contemporary dance scene of the region today. Latvia will be represented by performance “Sarah Kane” (M?rti?š Eihe, Krist?ne Borodina, Aigars Apinis, Edgars Rubenis) and choreogrpaher Sintija Sili?a participating in residency program (both the sharing of residency results and showing of “Sarah Kane” will take place on Spetember 19).

The city will be teeming with dance artists. The Baltic Bubble takes place from September 18-20 in the frame of the Nordic dance network keðja encounter, giving the Estonian dance artists community the pleasure to host Nordic and Baltic dancers, choreographers, dance teachers, dance critics, producers-managers and other dance related people in Estonia. More information about the encounter at www.tantsuliit.ee/kedja.

The series of keðja lectures, workshops and seminar evenings will round off with a parade of riveting works by M?rti?š Eihe from Latvia, Agnija Šeiko and Jonas Sakalauskas from Lithuania, and Mart Kangro, Kenneth Flack, Krista Köster and Kristina Paškevi?ius from Estonia.

In addition to the programme of performances, the dance artists’ creative vigor will find expression in a residency. The residency brings together three choreographers, one from each Baltic State, with the aim to find out if the Baltic dance artists want to collaborate, if the regional proximity is a reason strong enough for a collaboration, and if a similar geopolitical background unites people and their thoughts. The residency takes place from 14 to 19 September and the fruit of the work will be shown to the audience on the last day.

The Baltic Bubble is organized by the dance production house STÜ (Sõltumatu Tantsu Ühendus), the Union of Estonian Dance Artists and keðja with the endorsement of the Estonian Ministry of Culture, Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture (EU Culture Programme) + Art and Culture Programme.
