FOREIGN BODIES Foreign Bodies is a project initiated by 4Culture Association in cooperation with Stiftelsen WEE-Scavetta/Kipperberg Foundation (Norvegia) and Reykjavik Dance Festival (Islanda) which takes place between December 2014 – April 2016 in Bucharest/RO, Oslo/NO and Reykjavik/IS and includes workshops, coaching projects, conferences, residencies, productions and presentations of dance and film. The project is developed around the concepts of ‘foreign body’ and ‘periphery’ and arises from the partners strong intentions to contribute with their international expertise to an enhance of artistic mobility in a context in which migration it’s seen as an important phenomenon of the society. The concept of ‘periphery’ is seen from the project’s perspective both geographically and economically, through the influence that it has on the development of certain groups within the society and, also, on their access to education and culture.
