From 24th November to 2nd December, 2006, 20 dancers, four choreographers and visual artists from Asia and Europe participated in Pointe to Point’s 4th Asia-Europe Dance Forum in Warsaw, Poland. Over this period, the choreographers’ experience during the studio visit was shared with the group of dancers in the creation and recreation of artistic work in dance and visual arts. Simon Dove (The Netherlands/UK) provided mentorship for this group of young artists as this year’s Pointe to Point Artistic Director.
New inspirations and discoveries between two artistic disciplines: dance and visual arts were the focal point of this exchange. Divided into two phases, the initial stage will be a meeting between prominent and accomplished visual artists and young choreographers. Existing works by Anne Rochette (France), Ibrahim Hussein (Malaysia), Benedicto “Bencab” Cabrera (Philippines) and Jose de Guimaraes (Portugal) will be the source of inspiration for the young choreographers: Bruno Pradet (France), Chiyo Ogino (Japan), Alden Lugnasin (Philippines) and Paulina Wycichowska (Poland). The reaction/interaction served as the inter-disciplinary reflection and refraction employing the two media.
