About the workshop:
Even though it is no audition,
the workshop is part of the research phase for the new production which will
premiere in the beginning of December 2019 in Vienna. The workshop could be an
opportunity to join this production.
The workshop proposes different forms of research based on
various dance vocabularies und improvisation methods. The dancers will
learn how to bring in and develop their own vocabulary and individual style.
After the warm up (which is a mix of contemporary movement and
floor work), we will set off towards a path where we reduce patterns and
conservative forms of technique and styles.
We will continue the movement research by focusing on specific
themes such as space, gravity, collision, and other topics that will be
proposed during the class. We will apply these ideas firstly
to solo dance material and follow this with group work, which will focus on
different formations (duo, trio and larger groups). Here we will also work with
contact improvisation and partnering.
Continuing, we will combine the previously created material and
feed it with new energy, adding something more each time in the so-called
“choreographic engine”. Through this application and the distribution of a
number of fixed set movements, we will compose and generate new choreographic
aspects and images.
The workshop will end with public showings.
