Side Step 2020 | Lecture: Michiel Vandevelde
Michiel Vandevelde writes:
“In this lecture I will delve into three central notions for my work: reappropriation, layering and alienation. My intent is to reveal the choreographic process of my works through these notions and expand them through rewriting those central notions into other words. As a side note I will also address my curatorial practice in relation to my choreographic work.”
