Dance day in your nosebag


The project ‘Dance day in your nosebag’ will make choreographers of contemporary dance to survey the everyday movements of representatives of different professions in their natural environment, observing, registering, dancing and exercising together. Habitual gestures and movements will turn into material of choreographic phrases, which the viewers will be able to watch as a mini performance. April 29 will see eruption of such performances all around Riga, in attempt to dedicate the whole day to non-stop dancing. These events will be co-ordinated and a map of proceedings – prepared in order to turn this action into a publicly enjoyable process.
