12 / The Instrument – Composition and Choreography
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2014/15
We will focus on handling composition in a present moment by balancing between our physical vocabulary and our listening to dynamics and activity around us. Improvising with form, rhythm, touch and resonance; we will tune the body through our physiology, imagination and ability to enjoy the making of dance. Our movement will be looked at through the eye of 'dance-writing' and choreography, inviting performative states as we work with directions and tasks independently and at a high level.
