About the workshop:

Even though it is NOT an 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 and 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.

*Additional costs:
Accommodation (single/double bedrooms in shared apartments for up to 5 people):
Accommodation € 150 per person for the whole period.
