I love to accompany dancers in their selfexpression.
In different contac festivals I played the violin and I play in the
Munic-Tango-Banda.

I work as a free lance musician, violin teacher and music therapist. Sound is the most importat element of my work in its multiple facets, colours and its subtle connection to sentiments and feelings.

 


 

Klaus Donarski is a Freiburg based musician, contact dancer, graphic designer and photographer.

He loves to play contact festivals and jams and hosts music/singing/dance/healing spaces.
Coming from music production and DJing he made his way through many musical traditions, always searching for what is touching and finding nourishment in the magic of sound and silence. Toning, Mantra and Nada Yoga as pure, reduced and essential forms of music became inspiring practices.

At least the combination of music and dance improvisation is steady drawing his attention to further explore the dynamics of sound and silence, movement and stillness, connection, inner and outer awareness, relation, flow, harmony, chaos, contradiction and surprise. He is focusing on opening space for the experience of participating conscious in our creative living energy field, from which the movement of the body as well as the sound comes. Klaus uses presence, resonance and openness applied on piano, guitar and voice to empower and sustain space for this movement, a vivid process of giving and receiving on many levels – improvisation as a basic human gift of communication, healing and joy.

Klaus will interweave our Dance journey with his heartfelt & tuned in soundscapes. A seasoned musician at Contact festivals in Europe, he knows just how to tune into the Dancer's field & flow, complementing it beautifully with his music.


"It is always refreshing and surprising to create sound atmospheres together with other musicians. As a percussionist, it is particularly exciting to improvise ~ to allow soundscapes to emerge in the moment; with feeling, flowing and at the same time accentuated. I play Congas, Djembe, Waterdrums, Ravedrum, Ngoni and small percussions".

I´m Sophia (30), born in Koblenz. Since my childhood, I play the Flute traverse and I love to move, to climb and to dance. I studied music and dance pedagogy (Elementare Musik- und Tanzpädagogik) at the Carl-Orff-Intitut in Salzburg.
During this time I discovered Contact Improvisation. My experience from acrobatics helped me a lot to get into Contact Dance easily .
I also learned to play different percussion instruments and learned for myself a little bit guitar for playing and singing Mantras.
In my first years of playing the Flute, I focused more on classical music, I played in an orchester and in different musical projects and different ensembles.
In the last ten years I started to improvise a lot; I really love to play worldmusic together with other musicians; my favorite music is Latino Music, Tango, Salsa, Gipsy or whatever my fingers are dancing on my flute;-)

Many years I´ve been a member of a youth circus, where I learned partneracrobatics, juggling and also played in the circus band in our shows.
The last two years I worked in a kids and youth circus „Rambazotti“ in Kassel.
This summer I followed my heart and moved to Freiburg. Here I am still arriving, teaching the flute and circus groups. I´m organising my own acrobatic-workshops and I´m developing an acrobatic dance performance together with my boyfriend and preparing a cello flute project.
