Performative States through Movement


A way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body.
Human beings are constantly searching for goals and objectives that may be influenced by different physical states, which can be altered again. We are in this constant search in life to pursue or find a way to continue. There is a clear connection between finding our own path, our relationships and our daily actions. Rational control, trance, presence, resonance, stillnes, awarenes and ‘group discussions’ will be key elements to focus on during the sessions. Together with the creation process we will frame it in an actual social context. The methodology is based in different group and individual situations, tools that help the body expressing itself and beginning a journey into a physical development. During the journey it is possible to identifiy emotions and themes, who are consciously transformed in performative states, physical risk and mental practices. It is not just an improvisation; it is a conscious laboratory work using improvisation as a technical tool. The session will be combined with other movement techniques and challenging tasks.

Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € / Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de

Additionally you can join the open contemporary training 'CUERPO PRESENTE: THE INNER BEAST'
A contemporary dance technique work that seeks to activate, strengthen and raise awareness of the body in space from the bone structure, joints and the body's relationship to the floor work by researching the efficiency that provides the origin of movement. The participants are guided through warm-ups with clear mobility tasks and energy management. It uses basic principles of biomechanics, such as mechanical and physical function under concepts of structure and ergonomics with an external body and space, gravity, resistance and vectors moving in three dimensions. Ends with a physical and spatial variation – built from the accumulation of material explored, to implement the outcomes in a more complex level in terms of dynamic and memory. Alexander explores the body from different perspectives of contemporary dance techniques, and emotional states. As a support, a background in Colombian Folklore and Afro-contemporary. Creative techniques (awareness, improvisation and composition). Theatre, Qigong and Kung Fu. Alexander has taught ‘CUERPO PRESENTE: The Inner Beast’ since 2013 in Belgium, Spain, Colombia, Mexico and Germany
