Attakkalari Center for Movement Arts, in collaboration with swissnex India, is organizing the FACETS International Choreography Residency 2017 that will be held from January 2nd to February 2nd 2017 in Bangalore. During this period, the choreographers will create works which will be premiered at the Attakkalari India Biennial 2017 scheduled between 3 and 12 February 2017.

FACETS 2017 will be a vibrant platform for exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences to explore unchartered approaches in creating movements. The FACETS 2017 showcases are spread over the 4th and 5th of February from 1.00 pm in Gurunanak Bhavan, Bangalore, and are with free entry. For other shows, tickets are available at the Attakkalari office and the Rangashankara Box Office, as well as on BookMyShow.

The Residency program will offer emerging choreographers an inter-disciplinary approach to creating original works or extending already explored ideas.

Participants will be mentored by adept and internationally acclaimed faculty to develop perspectives in a supportive and creative environment, free of financial constraints. The residents will work as a collective undergoing common technique/ skill sharing sessions and feedback forums, with production rehearsals to meet individual choreographer’s needs. This period opens up scope for group devising and course corrections.

Swiss mentors Claude and Antoine, supported by swissnex India, will be showcasing their expertise with light design at Facets. Swiss Sound Designer Marcel Zaes, supported by Pro Helvetia New Delhi, is also a mentor at FACETS. Many of Zaes’ works have been published by Tonus Music Records, Switzerland, and are internationally showcased.
