Mindora Duchamp will teach improvisational and choreographic composition to deepen our awareness and explore our technical potential as well as our imaginative impulses in order to create an uninhibited process of dynamic energy-flow with intensity of feeling.

Based on the principle of release work technique the workshop will provide the pathways to develop and coordinate movement with dialogue/sound/storytelling/game
The aim is to exchange and share our experiences in time and space interactively with each other and the public.

Mindora is an international, independent choreographer since 1988. She is based in Berlin since 2015 and has created a choreography with four dancers -The Rough Romantics and a solo improvisation, I’m a Pisces. Both works have been showcased
in Berlin/Paris/Hamburg. Mindora has taught and trained dancers her own method at the Tanzfabriik Uferstudio over the last two years.

Mindoras Arbeit umfasst Design, Performance, Szenografie und Choreografie. Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie an der LSCD, dem Laban Dance Center und der Arts Educational in London. Gründete sie die Company MINDORA mit dem Ziel ihr Wissen an die jüngere Generation weiterzugeben und die starren Regeln klassischer Tanzausbildungen sowie Genregrenzen aufzubrechen. Zu Mindoras Lehrern für Anatomic Release Technique und Kontaktimprovisation gehörten Steve Paxton, Patricia Kuypers und David Hamilton.
