Tools for Tomorrow brings together dancers and researchers to look at the ways we acquire knowledge as a result of cultural patterns and how we can develop tools to transform this knowledge. A dialogue between Aly Ahmed Talaat’s research on ownership and authorship, If Copy Then Value, and Brazilian Choreographer Gustavo Ciriaco’s Yesterday's Tomorrows, learning performative platform, the project aims to explore how diverse modes of copying impact our personality of movement. Through a series of observation and dialogue sessions with Egypt-based dancers, the project aims to create experimental copying methods, freeing ideas from the confines of copyright and allowing further development by different owners.
