Production Details / Press Releases
In 2013 Christina Ciupke and Igor Dobričić jointly initiated a research project entitled “(by)invitation”. It was experienced in a range of conceptual “choreographic” situations in different venues and the audiences were invited both personally and publicly. Christina Ciupke’s new format “Editions” which prepares and deepens artistic collaborations throws up outlines for performative ideas and situations. For “Edition#1: to dance” Christina Ciupke and the dramaturg Igor Dobričić now join forces once again in a modified and extended working process.
Christina Ciupke is a performer and choreographer based in Berlin. Since 1999 she develops projects and specific situations in collaboration with artists from dance and other fields of art. She has worked with photographer Gisela Dichert, choreographer Myriam Gourfink, composers Kasper Toeplitz, Martin Schüttler, Nirto Karsten Fischer. She maintains ongoing collaborations with choreographer Nik Haffner, Mart Kangro, filmmaker Lucy Cash, visual artist Lars ø Ramberg, composer Boris Hauf and dramaturge Igor Dobričić. From 2003 to 2004 Christina Ciupke was guest artist at the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe. in 2013 she received her MA of Choreography from the Amsterdam School of the Arts.
Igor Dobričić is based in Amsterdam. He studied dramaturgy at the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade, (former) Yugoslavia. Between 1995 and 1999 he worked as a dramaturge for the Belgrade International Theatre Festival (BITEF). Since 1999 he is living and working in Amsterdam. Between 2000 and 2004 he was a student at DasArts. Until December 2008 he was holding a position of the programme officer for the arts at the European Cultural Foundation. In that role he initiated the ALMOSTREAL project platform (www.almostreal.org). He is regularly collaborating as a dramaturge with a number of choreographers / theatre- and dance makers (Nicole Beutler, Diego Gil, Keren Levi, Katrina Brown, a.o). For the last three years he has been teaching concept development to students of the Amsterdam School for New Dance (SNDO). As a research fellow with the Amsterdam School of the Arts, Igor is realising a long-term research project called “Table Talks”. His professional interests lie in the exploration of parameters of performative action in-between different fixed production contexts (theatre and visual arts, professional and non-professional status, individual and group work, aesthetics and ethics).
