    Shifting the Eye

    Anna Nowicka

    The process of dance that combines intuitive ways of creating with conscious, choreographic decisions, empowering performers to connect with their dreaming as a legible source of knowledge and the foundation for creativity.  It is a practice of an on-going becoming, moving playfully between real and imagined, between doing and observing, expanding an awareness of the endless flow of impulses, able to choose which one to follow, form and embody. By ‘shifting the eye’ simultaneously within and outside oneself, one notices the focus of attention. In following it, engaging with it and expanding it through the body, we will discover and work with the creative potential of every moment. The practice is aiming at unfolding the body into a multi-layered, ever flowing, response-able entity, available to the continuous emergence of sensations, feelings and images, curiously creating from what currently is. Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € / Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the open contemporary training The class will focus on making the body open, available and responsive. We will bridge the intense physical work with imagery exercises, learning to navigate between concrete movement tasks, bodily experiences and images. The dance practice will be an in-depth exploration of basic physical principles of weight, effort, direction, time and space. From a place of deep relaxation and unfolding, participants will flow between a number of exercises working with physical, emotional and mental bodies, with the aim of broadening movement choices. This will be explored in solo/group research, and through partner/hands on work, introducing the presence of an observer. Open training: Mo & Wed18:15- 19:45 Fee: For people joining the Performance Project: 105 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 95 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 €

    Between spaces, between bodies – Frontiers and Bridges

    Delimitating spaces, creating borders, defining identity, differentiating, comparing, opposing, unifying, connecting, interacting, migrating, grounding, strengthening, solidarizing… As much as frontiers and bridges can separate or unite, belonging to a group of people to create identity can be both liberating and alienating. In this performance project we will investigate group dynamics and spatial interactions in relationship to the individual and to the audience. Using contact skills, unison and group listening, we will construct, transform, and deconstruct bridges and barriers, shifting frontiers in space, drawing floor patterns, either framing the audience or the individual. Drawing from personal stories from the dancers, communication will then take place, or not, between the framed bodies. Inspired by Marie’s latest piece L’Art et la manière, we will as a group go through the devising process in a playful investigating mode, improvising and creating movement material.   Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € / Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the open contemporary training The training integrates creativity with technique to allow participants to develop their relationship with their physical, emotional, creative and social body. Starting form a single anatomical-poetical reference, the class will shift perspective from the body in isolation, to the body in space, to the body as a group. The class will mix exploratory tasks with set material working with shifting weight, spirals, movement quality, dynamics and floor work, to engage the whole body as a physical instrument within a poetical landscape.

    Cross The Borders Of Our Border (fully booked)

    Sonia Rodriguez

    We receive a lot external impulses every day which is influencing our dance .They manifest in different ways depending on the context, space and our identity. The main objective in this performance project is to find the “Authentic” movement starting from how we feel in the present moment. Rediscover and enhance all qualities of movement and their intention. Therefore I invite dancers and movers who want to experiment and transform old patterns. It will be an evolving process: We will bring our attention to more complex phrases, combining different energetic qualities and different levels. All this under the topic of “ To cross the borders of our border”. The first objective will be working on our presence without fear. This will allow us to get closer to our feelings and inspiration, and being able to share it within the group. Secondly we will go through an intense physical work to explore bodily experience, to find images and our own strategies to perform. Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € / Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the open contemporary training We will start with a technical class to work the perception of the body as layers, with different sensations and emotional states, emphasizes the body ́s natural alignments and movements, between doing and observing the flow of impulses. We will work on different sequences, focusing our attention in which energy, which space, movement dynamic and speed we use in our dance. Open training: Mo & Wed18:15-19:45 Fee: For people joining the Performance Project: 105 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 95 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 € vimeo.com soniarodriguez

    Hearts <3

    Martha Hincapié Charry

    Hearts <3 opens a space to meet in an intimate an close dialogue, where we´ll make, through movement, a reflection about our bodies and their actual state. The project will consider the notion of constant change in aspects related to the creation process and the final objective: the performance itself. In this context we´ll find a comfortable place for our traditions and habits and look over them to find something new. We´ll meet in our commonplaces with their breaks and well enrich them with self-control, transformation and transgression. The work concentrates on perception and the investigation of playful mechanics, mixing personality, technique skills and listening of the body in a constant dialogue between the interior, the exterior and the contex: space, bodies and time. The body and the subjective relationship between general and individual humanness is presented in this project. Jean-luc Nancy introduced the concept of the “being-with”: a body is always in the first instance connected to other bodies, hence to other people: for something to be, this something must also be perceived, apprehended, experienced. Being has to be embodied…in bodies and through bodies. Bodies are not stable entities, neither the world we are living in. HEARTS <3 will open spaces for subjective notions about the relationship between self, society and body, performing as a group, experiencing collective power and dancing duets or solos, developing a choreographie that convey the feeling of a stage piece. The final showing will be followed by an open-air physical encounter. Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € | Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the open contemporary training The concept of discovery in this training will constantly move us towards a broader understanding of different systems and dynamics of ever changing movement qualities that we will investigate, providing a framework to rise awarness in our bodies and to promote natural movement from our core. Through improvisation exercises we´ll train the alertness of mind and body and thereby gain more freedom of movement and confidence. We´ll approach a full body experience, a dialogue in movement, with images and exercises that shift the ways in which we experience our bodies as we move working with choreographed phrases. It is about the limits and possibilities of working in relationship with the environment, relying on each other, connecting with our senses, our weight and space/time feeling, activating and encouraging deep listening of the body. The physical result is a state of continuous observation that in this training will look for ways to constantly take us away from habits and open up solidified patterns of movement. Mo & Wed 18:15-19:45 | Fee: For people joining the performance project: 110 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 100 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 €
