Noa & Snow, a gentle experiment between the everyday and the event

Noa & Snow is a choreographic event during which the audience is given the possibility to write. It is a proposition to discover the everydayness of both practices in a way that complicates the notion of the everyday itself. A writing atelier becomes a performance, a choreographic studio turns into a poem. Conceived as a choreographic social experiment, Noa & Snow gently allows rather than guides, it implicates rather than explicates.

The project aims at exploring the capacities of poetry to ignite imagination across several writing modes and genres in order to shed some light on the possible articulations between performance practices and writing practices.
