In Residence – Nielsson Conversations III / fig. 41.b motivations -

14.12.2015 - 14.12.2015

Dearest! The Nielson Collectieve would like to invite you to the Conversation!
We would like to have a cross institutional conversation about taste and implication in art/dance. This will be a non-formal workshop concerning performance trends, taste, and content of the dance community in dresden. The evening, beginning with a lecture/performance from Joseph Hernandez, invites participants to get to the heart of the matter, whatever that may be. All kinds of submissions/liasons are welcome.

Monday, December 14, thing starts at 7.30pm


The Nielsson Conversations I/II is a series that will attempt to implement and create theory about collaboration. With the fictive character J. Nielsson for a guide, artists are invited to investigate their own narratives, and to create new ones, as well as to examine the space where that overlaps. One of Nielsson’s first tenants is that “space” holds the key to our human design. Through dance, tension, and close documentation, the Nielsson Conversations aim to create installations and performances that know themselves, and that take their places among a network of always more complicated narrative. see here:

all parts hosted by:
Joseph Hernandez, current dancer with the Semperoper Ballett, created his first piece (We, Tender) for the Royal Ballet of Flander’s “Coupe Maison” series in 2012. He went on to create two works for Les Ballets De Monte Carlo; Sawdust and Rust (2013), and Persistent Sequence (2014). He founded the Nielsson Collective with installation artists Yannick Cosso and Jordan Pallages in 2012, focusing their work on the research of narrative and collaboration, and the place these concepts have in contemporary art.
