Der Pre-Workshop wird zu gleichen Teilen von Ka und Thomas unterrichtet.

 

Ka Rustler - Emergence of Form

The Philosopher and neuroscientist Alva Noë states that if we want to understand the conscious mind, we need to take a wider view of the whole organism interacting with its environment and hence create consciousness. While we move and dance we constantly receive information from our internal and external world, an environment that shapes and is shaped by our experience. Consciousness and awareness is a state in which cells have equal chance for expression and receptivity.

How we perceive, filter, use, reject and accept influences our instantaneous composition and how we create our environment and emerge into form.

Thomas Kampe - The Art of Connecting

In this workshop we will use The Feldenkrais Method® as a resource for Contact Improvisation practice. The Feldenkrais Method offers a relational perspective on movement, perception, and on being in the world. It aims to support our ability to discover new skills and to develop a heightened somatic authority with ease. Through ‘Awareness through Movement’® lessons and through touch-based ‘Functional Integration’® practices we will explore a refined dialogic movement potential in relationship with others, to find freedom and creativity in our movement choices as improvised dancers.

Ka Rustler - Folding and Unfolding

Perception of touch and movement are the first senses to develop. From our vginning our cells communicate, correspond and develop in continuous movement: migrating, folding and unfolding, expanding, spiralling and creating space in specific time parameters. I perceive in Contact Improvisation all these various phases of our early development are inherent and exemplary modelled.

Each day we will dive into one aspect of our cellular landscape venturing into unknown territory with various structures and strategies for embodied exploration into Contact Improvisation. Working from the cellular expanding out we will examine how we inhabit new realms of consciousness offering diverse layers to our movement qualities, perception and movement action. With the meeting of any two forces a third is automatically created moving in multidimensional direction.

Thomas Kampe - Wide Open Dancing: The Feldenkrais Method and Contact Improvisation

In this workshop we will draw on gentle and playful learning processes based on The Feldenkrais Method® to support our shared dance practice. We will focus on developing an increased and fluid coordination of our core, and on fine-tuning our ability to relate creatively to our living environment. This workshop will also explore the creative use of vision and seeing, and some basic upside down skills – handstands and assisted back-flips - to increase the three–dimensional range of our CI-dancing. The Feldenkrais Method makes use of two approaches, ‘Awareness through Movement®’(ATM) and ‘Functional Integration®’(FI) to facilitate conditions from which ‘awareness’ and possibilities for new ways of moving can be cultivated. This is achieved through non-corrective, pleasurable and structured inquiries in empathic, improvisational dialogues.

Der Workshop findet entweder im Wasser oder im Studio statt.
Er bietet die Möglichkeit Tanz und Contact-Improvisation spielerisch im Element Wasser bzw das Wasserelement im Studio zu erforschen. Wir spielen mit den unterschiedlichen Qualitäten des Wassers, erforschen die Dynamik der Schwerkraft ,..... lassen uns treiben, sinken, tauchen unter ...... 

Dieser Tanz ist geprägt durch das Fließen, das Bewegen lassen, das Loslassen, die Balance zwischen passiv und aktiv, führen und folgen. Aber auch die Nähe-Distanz, die Sinnlichkeit, sowie Partnerarbeit-Solo-Gruppe, u.a

Nach anfänglich klar strukturierter Anleitung öffnet sich der "Tanz" immer mehr in ein freies Spiel unterschiedlichster Interaktionen.

Dieser Workshop ist eine Einladung gewohnte CONTACT Sichtweisen los zu lassen und einzutauschen gegen ein spontane, aus dem Moment geschöpftes Sein, im "Hier und Jetzt".

Benno Enderlein

Mich interessiert CI als Forschungsraum. CI ist das Zentrum der Studie. Hauptsächlich geht es mir um Bewusstseinsarbeit, die diese Tanzform von Anfang an in sich verankert hatte (sieh z.B. Magnesium). Hier können wir so viele schöne, lustvolle, inspirierende Begegnungen haben, mit uns selber und mit anderen. All diese Begegnungen reflektieren auf überraschende und spielerische Weise unser Leben und unsere Gewohnheiten. Was kann es köstlicheres geben als auf so leichte und gleichzeitig tiefe Weise das Leben zu erfahren? Und ….. wie kann diese Erfahrung als TANZ erlebt werden?
Benno studierte 1989 bis 1993 am "European Dance Development Center" der Hochschule Arnheim(NL). Seit dem ist er Vollzeit Tänzer und Tanzpädagoge sowie Organisator von CI Events. Außerdem praktiziert er seit 1991 Shiatsu als Behandlungsform sowie in Kombination mit CI. Weitere Interessens- und Unterrichtsfelder sind: Water-Contact, Contango und Contact & Tantra sowie die Organisation von Delphinreisen.
Ihn interessieren Bewusstseinsschulungen und Meditationstechniken, im speziellen ADVAITA-Bewusstsein und Lichtarbeit.
Er ist Mit-gründer und -organisator des internationalen Contactfestivals Freiburg.

Nighttime jungle

presence perception performance workshop 

Although it is not possible to plan for transformational moments, we can choose to enter into the realm of mystery. Through humorous lightness and provocative intensity, deep body sensing and expansive imagination engagement, we practice bending our attentiveness towards the resonant present moment. In this unfolding landscape between knowing and not knowing, with our awareness heightened and consciousness expanded, the potential for transformation lives.

This workshop is for all adventurers who want to explore diverse improvisational states of mind, body & voice, and question their assumptions about their performance attitude.

Be prepared for perception-bending & assumption-altering encounters and to to be challenged and annoyed. 

Be prepared for serious amounts of playful fun and enjoying full-on collaboration within a community of equals.

Riding the bull home

improvisation for challenging times 

Okay!  ~ You’ve stayed open and available, worked hard to follow as much as lead, been careful to neither push nor pull, and voilà: Material has been born, themes have developed and an overarching narrative is emerging…

Now What?  ~ What does is take to reach the final part of your journey? How do you Ride the Bull Home?

In this workshop we’ll explore how to bring our improvisational material Home, looking for end-making in the final chapter—perhaps even in the very last moments—and practice committing to a resolution. We’ll discover how the searching for an organic closure is often an illusion, an unfulfilled desire—regardless of how much it is a natural human longing—and investigate how this impacts our performance attitude and audience relationship.

Flowing fluids

Our body consists of around 70-80 % of different kinds of fluids like blood, lymph, cellular,.... It is is a system of communication and transformation as the fluids flow through the whole body and transform from one to another. Connecting to the fluids we feel and express what is and we are able to flow with sudden changes without putting extra stress into our system. We are able to find balance between rest and activity. 

Contact Improvisation for tall and small

Contact Improvisation is an inclusive dance form, nevertheless it seems not to be a common practice for adult persons to dance with their or other kids. Why it is challenging for adults and kids dancing together? Different height, different weight, different knowledge...How can we use the principles of CI to create a dialogue between young and old without the kid is telling what the parent has to do or jumping on him/her or the adult using his/her authority to again teach the child the form. How can we find dialogue and improvisation? In this class we are exploring the democracy of this dance form, dealing with the difference in age, heights, weight, knowledge and understanding. We are embracing the differences in inviting patience to listen to and learn and grow with each other. It is a try out how we can dance and play together.

Contact Improvisation ist eine inklusive Tanzform, nichtsdestotrotz ist es nicht sehr normal, dass Erwachsene mit ihren Kindern tanzen. Wieso ist es so herausfordernd, dass Große und Kleine miteinander tanzen? Verschiedene Größe, anderes Gewicht, unterschiedlicher Wissensstand....wie können wir die Prinzipien von Contact Improvisation nutzen, um einen Dialog zwischen Großen und Kleinen zu schaffen ohne dass die Erwachsenen den Kindern sagen, was zu tun ist und umgekehrt. Wie können wir Dialog und Improvisation finden? In diesem Unterricht erforschen wir die Demokratie dieser Tanzform. We gehen mit Unterschiedlichkeiten um, umarmen diese und suchen nach gemeinsamen Tänzen und Spielen. Diese Klasse ist ein Start dafür, wie gemeinsames tanzen möglich ist.

Especially I am researching in the field of somatic based on Body-Mind Centering, how to use that as a tool for teaching movement and dance as well how it enriches creating performances. In Berlin I am teaching regular classes and workshops about Embodied anatomy based on Body-Mind Centering, Contact Improvisation and Authentic Movement. I am organizing jams, researches and workshops for adults. Especially since my daughter was born in 2008 I am exploring dancing and communicating through dance with her. Since than I am creating spaces for adults and kids to dance and be together. More infos you can find on: www. Heikekuhlmann.net

My Plevis floating and flying

My pelvis as a light and floating moveable structure, which connects me to the ground and supports me flying? Exploring the functional anatomy of the pelvis with images and hands on practice - alone and with a partner, can offer a new way to move my center down and up, light and grounded. This class offers you a way to embody your personal anatomy, guiding you into Contact dances.
