THE BEYOND DARKNESS DIALOGUES is a podcast about artistic practice and artistic research, hosted by Nanna Hanfgarn Jensen and Nadja Mattioli.
We want to share our conversations with performers, artists and practitioners who are inspiring us during our creative BD investigations. We believe that it is important to provide more accessible sources about artistic practices as well as encourage artists to share their ideas, questions and findings with each other.
We release new episodes once a month, usually around the 15th, and the dialogues are between 1 to 1,5 hours long. Listen to our conversations here:
Our first season dialogue partners are:
Thomas Eisenhardt, choreographer and artistic director of Aaben Dans
Anouk van Dijk, choreographer and founder of countertechnique
Annika Kompart, dancer and choreographer
Michael Breiner, light designer and teacher
Melissa Ugolini, dancer and movement artist
What we want to offer our listeners is open access to our conversations with artists and scientists who inspire our research, our practice, our art. With this, we want to create a platform for knowledge-exchange within the performing arts, a peek behind the scenes of our work, as well as inspire others to be curious about the research and discoveries within our field. We also hope that our dialogues will help connect more artists with each other to join in conversation and collaborations.
