The Instrument: Transfiguring Space (Waiting list)

Live Workshop with Maya M. Carroll
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2021

Stemming from respective view-points through which our bodies perform movement and action in space; the workshop addresses our physical awareness, orientation and imagination, while creating spatial layers in dance composition. Attentive towards flow and precision, the work encourages vibrant listening through an introspective sense of space and place. Extended further; interior and exterior spaces where dances are performed and acknowledged with deepened appreciation. Through objects, gravity, proximity and atmosphere we observe how environments are conceived and perceived and how  s p a c e  plays a significant role in our composition. The work draws its fascination from performance, visual arts, architecture, cinema, humans and their surroundings, theater and choreographic narratives.

The workshop is aimed for movers; dancers and performers who wish to engage with instant composition at a high level. Movement / dance background experience is required. 

Please note: The workshop will only take place live in the studio. The number of participants will be limited according to the then current hygiene measures. More detailed information about the measures will be continuously updated on the website and communicated by e-mail shortly before the workshop starts.
