The Instrument – Dance Composition & Aliveness (fully booked)

Workshop with Maya M. Carroll
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2022

Involving improvisation, choreography and the act of performance; this week-intensive welcomes us to work with our presence, responsiveness and the interplay between motion, stillness and image. These elements are activated in the process of making compositions; as we discover ways of seeing and thinking-physically, within embodied situations / narratives. Recognizing the connection between our physical – self and our relations with each other deepens; through touch, time, gesture and space. Qualities of interactions and choices we take within the dynamics of instant composition are encouraged through flow, bodily wisdom and imaginative thinking. A pathway to dance making and performance; allowing precision, playfulness and poetry come to life in our emerging pieces while witnessing the universes they create.

Following your registration, please send a short text describing your current interest and creative process (e.g what work you are involved with at the moment which connects you with this course). I will appreciate knowing a little bit about your dance journey before we meet! Kindly send your text to : contact.the.instrument@gmail.com
