Rory Pilgrim – danceWEB Scholarship Programme
Visual artist Rory Pilgrim received a Grant for International Development of Talent by the Mondriaan Fund for his participation in the danceWEB Scholarship Programme 2016 in Vienna. This programme will take place in the context of ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival. The programme will fill six weeks and consists of workshops, seminars and lectures. Tino Seghal and his are in charge. Pilgrim hopes by participating in the programme to learn from this artist working with performance and dance, particularly within the context of visual art. The artistic practice of Pilgrim is primarily based on speech, singing and the potency of the human voice. However, the role of the body has become increasingly important.
