About the workshop:

The workshop proposes different forms of research based on various dance vocabularies und improvisation methods. The dancers will study how to bring in and develop their own vocabulary and individual style.

After the warm up (based mainly on floor work) we will start with the movement research by reducing conservative patterns.

We will continue by focusing on specific themes such as space, gravity, collision, and other topics that will be proposed during our DAILY JOURNEY. 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 information, 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 a public showing.
