Social Skills

Rental Format(s): Digital File

SOCIAL SKILLS is a composition in which a large international group of improvising dancers share a viable vision of a cooperative and imaginative future based on mutual support and spontaneous creation. Here is an environment of touch without threat, closeness without conflict, and individual expression within collective action. Highlights from the 60 DAYS WORKSHOP conducted by dancer/choreographer/pedagogue David Zambrano in his Brussels art center TIC TAC (from October through mid-December of 2019) were recorded on 16mm film. Studying this crowd-filled footage, and composing from it this concise film, provided comfort and consolation during the unexpectedly protracted times of social isolation during the Covid pandemic.
