3-Days Workshop Flow Acrobatic with Kenan Dinkelmann during the Frei Art Festival 2021

Where: Studio Pro Arte, Freiburg, Germany

When: 13.09.21 – 15.09.21 – 3 Days

Flow Acrobatics Drawing inspiration from martial arts and yoga, the warm-up of this workshop has the
purpose of tuning dancers into a clear and subtle state of body and mind before they expand into their
practice and execution of movement phrases. Challenging postures alongside movement flow with circular
motions and spirals will be introduced in order to provide better awareness, while strengthening the body –
especially the wrists and legs. The warm-up is followed by a series of movement patterns which help us to
explore the mechanics of the spine. With the introduction of dynamics such as balancing, stabilizing, falling,
rolling, flipping and melting down, we will work towards maintaining flow without holding unnecessary
tension. The patterns will increase in complexity and then be linked together into longer sequences with
acrobatic elements.
The main part of the seminar consists of high energy movement phrases based on Kenan’s choreographic
work, which is influenced by various backgrounds such as Capoeira, Judo, Release-Technic and
Breakdance. Improvisational tasks, carried out either alone or with partners, will be present during the
whole workshop in order for us to explore the movement material from different viewpoints.

3-Days Workshop // 9:30-12:15h
At Studio Pro Arte / Freiburg/ Germany
