Michael Löhr

My class develops from plain and pure body-work / work-out exercises, through short floor- and standing combinations into more complex choreographic sequences. Some of the basic principles which are constantly worked with are: finding, strengthening and shifting the center, being on and off balance, resting and exploding into space, moving expansively and taking risks. The class is very physical, energetic and athletic but it also focuses on increasing the physical awareness in order to work within a frame in which one can push his individual limits but keep the body safe. It‘s an essential part of the class to discover and make full use of the logic that underlies every movement phrase. Based on that understanding I want to encourage the participants to play with quality, musicality and dynamics and strengthen their individual expression as a performer.

Michael Löhr studied contemporary dance at the Cologne University of Music and Dance and subsequently received a scholarship to visit the annual summer academy in Kyoto, Japan. As a performer he has been involved in various projects including collaborations with Ahn Eun-Me Company, Emanuel Gat Dance, Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg, Tanztheater Bielefeld, Unterwegstheater Heidelberg and has performed at numerous dance festivals around the world. In addition, he works as choreographic assistant of Emanuel Gat and is regularly invited to teach contemporary classes or workshops for institutions such as Ballet National de Marseille, Candoco Dance Company, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Polish National Ballet, Potsdamer Tanztage, PVC Freiburg, Tanz im August, Tanzhaus NRW and Unterwegstheater Heidelberg. www.mlcontemporary.com
