Short description of the workshops:

F a r a h S a l e h – Unfolding your archives
This workshop will begin every day with a morning class, exploring different body parts, looking into their articulations, connections and movement initiations. After establishing the body-mind awareness, during the rest of the day we will search for a common understanding of what gestures and bodily archives are, investigating ways of digging into our personal archives and making them accessible for others.

S e r g e A i m é C o u l i b a l y – The political body
For Serge Aimé, dancing is a commitment, an urge and a need. All his work starts from this basis, both his creations as his workshops. He has developed a taste and talent for the transmission of his art. By questioning the responsibility as performing artist and the power of a vocabulary that makes sense, Serge Aimé will open up together with the participants an original creativity to develop powerful contemporary dance.

S a l m a A t a y a & Y a z a t I w i d a t – Contemporary choreographic practices in duos
Taking the theme of the love-hate relationship between friends as a basis, this workshop is a research about how to define our relationship to the body of the other? About what we can create using the relations we have with other people? With exercises and tools that will push our physical and routine-like boundaries over and over again, this workshop aims at breaking habits when moving and creating. The workshop focuses on working with body-mind fullness and working with other people’s bodies, on how to translate ideas into emotional physical experiences.

H i l d e g a r d D e V u y s t – Starting a new creation
This workshop is meant for people who want to create their own work in a collaborative way, with performers making their own material. In this workshop Hildegard will take the participants to the very beginning of creation: starting from a concrete short story, during five days they will experience, develop and research a virtual first week of a new creation. In this workshop, Hildegard De Vuyst is using her experience built up as dramaturg at les ballets C de la B for already more than 20 years.

k a b i n e t k (Joke Laureyns & Kwint Manshoven) – Unpolished encounters
The encounter and the collaboration between children and adult dancers is a central theme in the work of kabinet k. In this workshop adults and children will work together to discover to specific dance language of kabinet k, a language that at one moment is contemplative, minimalistic, visual and then tilts over to raw, brutal and exuberant energy.
