Staging an Ordinary Day
What is an everyday experience? Can it be grasped into text or theater? The artist duo Sander Breure and Witte van Hulzen will give a presentation about their performance at Utrecht Central Station titled How can we know the dancer from the dance?. This presentation will provide a short training for participants to go outside and make their own detailed observations of theatrical events in everyday life. The results of these observations, in text, video and performances, will be shared afterwards. Breure & Van Hulzen

What is Training the Senses?
Knowledge is not only acquired visually at schools through language and text books. Learning involves all of our senses: we learn by listening, tasting, smelling, touching – and even by using our intuition. Through Training the Senses participants explore and discover a new vocabulary for all their senses and a new way to transmit experience and acquire knowledge. Training the Senses is an ongoing series organised by Marres, that avoids any division between speakers/performance and the audience. Everyone is welcome to join.
The Training the Senses program is financially supported by the Overvoorde Gordon Foundation – Pauwhof Fonds.
