W-3 / The Art of Mediation
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2016/17
This workshop focusses on the connection between artistic and pedagogic work. Gitta Barthel introduces tools and methods from her research about pedagogic practice in choreographie within a cultural context. Useful tools like working with what is already there, interlocking, adapting, synchronizing, and evaluating will be practically explored through guided and collaborative tasks. Working with practical examples we gather experiences about the art of giving tasks, the interplay of exploration and reflexion and the unpredictability of working in educational context.
Gitta Barthel actively pursues her artistic- pedagogic- and research practice as a dancer and choreographer and lecturer in the fields of Contemporary Dance, Choreography, Dancetheatre and Aikishintaiso; 2008-2014 she worked as a researcher at Institut für Bewegungswissenschaft/Performance Studies for Prof. Dr. Gabriele Klein, University of Hamburg.
