Thomas Kampe: The Art of Making Choices: Feldenkrais Methode® und Improvisation

Balance, Bewegungsfluss, Aufmerksamkeit, Bezugnehmen - Themen aus der Feldenkrais Methode bieten den Ausgangspunkt für detaillierte Improvisationen, spannende Tanz-Situationen und selbstbestimmte, von innen erfahrene Bewegungs-Experimente. In diesem Improvisations Workshop werden wir am drei-dimensionalen Bewegungspotenzial des Beckens und der Rippen arbeiten, als Ankerpunkt für dynamisches und zentriertes Tanzen. Die Feldenkrais Methode bietet spielerische Lernansätze durch systemische Bewegungsexperimente an, die unsere eigene Bewusstheit, Autonomie, Phantasie, und Empathie anregen und herausfordern. Durch detaillierte Auseinandersetzung mit unserer Körper- und Raum-Wahrnehmung, lernen wir neue Bewegungsmuster zu entdecken um kreative und dynamische Beziehungen mit der Welt zu formen. Daraus entwickeln wir Solo-, Duet- und Gruppen-Improvisationen. Wir benutzen Feldenkrais 'Bewusstheit durch Bewegung'® und 'Funktionale Integration®' als Disorientierungs- und Übungs -Praktiken, um durch Beobachtung und Berührungs-Partnerarbeit tanzkünstlerische Fragen zu stellen.

Ulla Mäkinen: Softening to awaken, strengthening to follow through

Releasing unnecessary tension to find freedom and functionality of movement, but also to open the senses to discover what is in and around ourselves. Finding states of soft strength, where we can be present in the dance and follow through what is happening - in movement patterns both solo and in contact. Following through is not only the physical pattern, it is also the focus and the journey what we create together, the improvisation. This journey is about the love of dance, and committing to it.
In the workshop we will play with different exercises both solo and in contact dance, using imagery and anatomical starting points to bring us in different states and to inspire and teach us about ourselves and the dancing.

Vega: FROM INSIDE OUT - Performative qualities in Contactimprovisation

Performance. Contactimprovisation. Composition. Dance.

Seeing. Being seen. Doing. Choosing. Being. Presence.

All are big themes, what do they mean for each of us? For me?

Dance and expression are arising from inside out - from feeling and sensing, from energy, from authenticity - being in the moment, and feeling what is true in it. Following our curiosity and inspiration.

I am interested in this stretchable area between unknown and known, intuition and technique. Structure and emotion. How to bring us in this blessed state of flow, where we become one with our dance, and our body knows how it needs to move.

In this intensive we bring light on such improvisational qualities as space, time, rhythm, composition in contactimprovisation. We´ll touch and re-visit as well basic principles and techniques of contact as our shared language and vocabulary. We will play with tools of breathing in and out from contact, creating playful sphere of listening, where surprises and choices can lead us into adventure!

"...I am drawing my inspirations from contact improvisation, authentic movement- and voice, BMC, meditation, breathing-techniques... For me it is important to root the expression and movement into your inner energetical state, and emotional body. From inside out. Finding the balance between being and doing, technique and sensing-feeling-intuition... Staying connected to the source and flow, but within structures. All the elements can grow together, opposites feeding each others.

I Love dancing and kissing, I love fighting and feeling the fire, I love honesty and authenticity, spontaneity and extremes. Flow and Intuition. Listening the moment, waiting in stillness. Flying like a dream in the air.
