"Space behind. Uncharted trails"...


There are two things that hinder the 'unknown' to happened:

  1. Deceptiveness of the eye-site
  2. Physical tensions

In this workshop there will be a possibility to explore in details the use eye-site characteristics and the way it help change usual trajectories into unknown trails. On the way to find courage and playfulness, we will take time for recognition, release of tensions in the body to free the inner space .

Other themes that will be addressed in the workshop are:

  • * The back space - ways, skills and images using the space behind the back and backward movement.
  • * Up side down positions.
  • * Conscious disorientation.
  • * Awakening spirals in the body and in duets
  • * Composing time, movement, space and choices.
  • * Speed in movement as a challenge - awakening concentration and attention.
  • * Letting myself not be aware of the future. Practicing movement towards the unknown.

During my travel high up in the mountains, I realized that fear and anxiety are never behind or ahead of me, they are where I am right now. My courage also awakens just when I make the step above the chimney in the mountain. When I jump from stone to stone, I find myself scared, courageous and funny. This is what this workshop is about - the novelty of each step and movement, in solo, in duet and with in a group.

Actiontheater™ Performance-Training

Actiontheater ist ein Improvisationstraining, das vom Körper ausgeht. Spontaneität, Präsenz und Spielfreude. Eine Entdeckungsreise in die Kreativität unserer Bewegung, Stimme und Sprache. Action Theater Training eröffnet spielerisch neue Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten.

Improvisationsübungen - einzeln und in der Gruppe - fördern spontanes Spiel und bewusste Gestaltung. Sie vertiefen die Fähigkeit Gefühle auszudrücken und entwickeln Stimme, Körperausdruck und Imagination.

Im Workshop werden wir Bewegungen, Worte und Sounds zu Performance-Momenten komponieren.

Jedesmal eine spannende Reise ins Unbekannte, ob mit oder ohne Worte, voll in „Action" oder ruhig, abstrakt, poetisch oder komisch.

Contact Impro meets Tango

Contango spielt mit den Möglichkeiten und Limits beider Tanzformen. Über die Analyse ihrer Stärken entwickelt sich ein Bild ihrer Qualitäten. In der zusammenführenden Rekonstruktion wird die weiche Rundheit des ContactTanzes mit der klaren Schärfe des Tango kombiniert, das Fallenlassen in verschiedenste Situationen beim Contact mit dem Rollenspiel des Tango, die Stille mit Geräuschen, Rhythmus und Musik. Elemente aus den Kampfkünsten, Physical Theatre und Bioenergetics unterstützen die neu entstehende, individuelle Expressivität.

Delicious Dancing

An Introduction into Somatic Dance Paedagogy

Contact Improvisation, Movementdevelopment and Feldenkrais® based Bodywork
In this Intensive we will focus on dancing with our Integrated Body.
Contact Improvisation is most delicious, we find, when we are truley dancing with our Integrated Body: our awakend physical, emotional and „sensory-input“-body“.
Giving and taking impulses, listening to our own needs and the rythm of the dance, riding the waves of rest and activity – all that happens easily, when our body is informed. Technical aspects, lifting, falling, sharing weight, counterpoint etc., can help us deepen into the physical possibilities.
We will offer you inner pathways that go back in time into your own movement development., reliving single steps of physical and emotional development.
From there we will enjoy dancing Contact Improvisation, and also work technically and systematically on the principles of this wonderful danceform. To offer tools and material for beginners and advanced dancers we will sometimes work in smaller groups or even individually.
On a sensory input level we can open up doorways in our dancing that might have been closed off, through awareness, touch and specific placement of information through another body.
In this intensive we invite you to „come as you are“, and dive into the magic moments of connecting with yourself and others.
