Blind date is a collaborative project between Codarts Rotterdam: 3rd year students of BA in dance, students of Rotterdam Conservatory BA in Composition, and students of Willem de Kooning Academie Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
“A Blind Date!” is a project in which creative dancers, composers and fashion/visual artists collaborate to investigate a common theme. The students are divided in 3 groups/teams during the creation and realization of individual pieces.
In this collaborative project each student plays an active role during the entire working process, contributing artistically, physically and participating in the production process.
The project consists of an introductory meeting followed by 9 full days of working. During this period the students are guided by a feedback-team consisting of several guest lecturers. This feedback-team comments on the process, interaction, and content. The feedback team are the lecturers and guests from the field of music, dance and visual art.
This year’s feedback team are René Uijlenhoet, Robin de Raaff, (RC Composition), Julie Muller, Karin Arink (WDKA) Sara Wiktorowicz and project leader Sanja Maier-Hasagic (Dance). The students are divided in 3 groups/teams during the creation and realization of individual pieces: 2 or more composers, 2 or more fashion designers/visual artist and a group of dancers.
The project will end with a presentation of the outcome of those 2 weeks in the ‘Theater-hall’ of Codarts on the 7 & 8 November 2019 at 19.00h.
