“Ayam’s work was an exciting experience that brought me elements and exercises for my own performance studies and practice as an arts teacher. Every meeting was introduced with some proposal, more or less structured around an idea, a metaphor, or a specific relation within our own bodies or with the spaces/objects/other bodies. This allowed me to persist (or quit) pathways of movements, trying to shape them, or define their origins, enlarging their meaning as they slowly gained more depth. We also explored translations between artistic languages as we moved our bodies and imitated sounds, approaching the senses in unexpected, playful ways”
„Thank you for these amazing classes. I feel my body so much more conscious, I feel like I have so much more control over my body movements and even emotions, while dancing.
I‘m honored to be able to attend at your classes“
„Connect, disconnecting.. Ayam’s classes gives me the freedom to give, share and take from each other beautiful moments using the body, senses and the voice. I surprise myself in every class and this free body gives me the control also about the space“
Maddi Fuente Ubani
„I watched the class video and I LOVED IT. will integrate that into my morning routine.
Your way of perception and combining different aspects,levels,dimensions really resonates. Also great verbalization of your practice and sensations,very relaxed, focused and synesthetic“
Kathryna Li de Leon
“Thank you for today’s session. By the end I felt really nurtured and excited to learn more of what my body and voice can create”
I am a multidisciplinary artist working with body, voice and sound to create open environments where each element can take the main role. By using improvisation and instant composition, I create from momentary inputs. The base is to share, not to show. My art is an open invitation into my own inner process. While I remain a free channel, there is a real chance for true transformation to take place.
I make performance art, music, and i hold space for transformational processes.
I write songs, poems, and improvise poetry in motion.
I facilitate sound journeys, dance journeys, concerts, performances and empowering voice circles where i like to be in an eye level with all.
I offer workshops, classes and perform in festivals and gathering around Germany and Europe.
As a choreographer and maker i created and presented pieces: : Lost & found ( 2014 werkstatbuhne 003 – 2014), Chromatic Fieleds (2015 60 minutes performance series Mime Centrum), and directed the piece “How long is now” that was presented three times : “commonground” Tanzfabrik Berlin, “Soundance” Festival Dock11, and “Now festival” – (Verlin 2017-2018), and “Be Coming Through” that was presented in “Commonground” Tanzfabrik Berlin.
