Contemporary Dance - Axis Syllabus

Kurs with Diana Thielen

This weekly evening class offers an inquiry into the Axis Syllabus for all bodies and all levels of experience, both beginners and professionals are welcome! Using the Axis Syllabus as a reference system and tool for sincere inquiry, this class commits to research, to explore and to reflect movement patterns and creates various ways to experience and practice it. The research, which is based on biomechanics, anatomy and physics, will lead us to understand and to appreciate our bodies limitations as well as potentials! Through choreographic material, as well as through improvisation, CI, partnering and bodywork participants learn to dive into the complex human body orchestration: Let's encourage the dialogue of our body to apply these findings in mixed contemporary dance arts!
