CPPM OPEN CLASS: Mart Kangro
06.09.2022 at 19:00
MA in Contemporary Physical Performance Making (CPPM) is a ground-breaking course that takes postgraduate education out of the classroom and puts practical experience with world-leading makers of performance at the heart of the learning process. Students are working alongside some of the most exciting directors, choreographers, performance makers, artists and companies across the world to further their own artistic practice through active collaboration, devising and performance. It is very important to us that all those international students who study the CPPM curriculum and those world-renowned performance makers who come to Estonia to teach them in Estonia, do not just stay between the four walls of the academy. CPPM Open Class is a series of events where anyone interested can take a look at the otherwise hidden rehearsal and creative processes. At the end of each open class, interviews with the guests will also take place to reveal even more about their creative processes.
Mart Kangro is a freelance choreographer, director and dancer. In his works, he focuses on the meaningfulness of the human body and movement in theatre as semiotic space-time, and on existential issues of stage situation. His productions, of which many have come about in the Kanuti Gildi SAAL, have been performed at major festivals in more than 20 countries across Europe (Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, Steirischer Herbst in Graz, Foreign Affairs and Tanz im August in Berlin, Helsinki Festival in Helsinki, Fringe Festival in Dublin, La Bâtie in Geneva, Internationale Keuze in Rotterdam, Golden Mask in Moscow, Aerowaves in London, Lignes de Corps in Valenciennes, and more). In recent years, he has produced works where he himself is not cast (Theatre NO99 and Von Krahl Theatre, as well as in Moscow). Kangro has won many awards and other recognition for his work, both in and outside Estonia.
