Workshop Fabian Wixe – ‘The Importance of Doing’
I propose a week workshop mixing morning training with afternoons full of improvisation and composition, a work session in which you can learn new techniques and apply them immediately.
I am looking for dancers and performers who wish to develop their skills and spend a week exploring their own physicality in relation to a group.
Where: Au Brana Cultural Centre, France
When: 4-8th of May 2020
Deadline for applications: May 10th 2020
This work session will be dedicated to technical and physical training; a mix of Flying Low (DZ) and other floor work. I will also propose choreographic material with a focus on increasing speed and precision.
I want to explore listening through the physical work, listening to the group and to oneself within a group, and how energy can be re-cycled and shared. To run with your heart rather than with your feet (they will follow).
We will also work through improvisation and composition; moving together, creating a space where we practice, explore, perform and ‘fail’ without judging ourselves or others. The environment will be one in which we can be inspired and inspire each other, a place to see each other and to let ourselves be seen.
In terms of compositional work I will share methods of working used and developed within the productions ‘Birds (come back to bones)’ and ‘New Sites’.
The methods aim to remove the need for inspiration in order to be able to work, to give you tools to bypass your own sense of judgement in the creative process and to use what you know to shape what you don’t know yet.
