thecarrierbag festival is a dance and choreography festival, that emphasizes how we gather around an artwork. It’s an ongoing artistic research between choreographer Emilia Gasiorek and choreographer/musician Karis Zidore actualized in the shape of a festival. The research moves between three layers – more or less visible – that are present when experiencing an artwork; the context and conditions in which a work is made, the live situation where a work is experienced, and a work as an object in itself.
The festival has taken place in 2017 and 2019. The third iteration will take place in june 2023 at Fabrikken for Kunst og Design, through Dansehallernes program.
