In the frame of Oster Tanz 2017
Involving improvisation techniques as well as personal experiences, we work with our presence, choice, vision and the interplay between movement and image. Engaging these elements in the process of dance making; we open an awareness to real-time situations and narrative, ways of seeing and composing. In practice, we will look at how we relate to our physical-self and to each other through a myriad of touch, weight and proximity, signals / gestures, rhythm and resonance. Drawing fascination from relationships between people, environments and memories; these qualities can indicate choices we take alone and together within the dynamics of instant composition. The workshop engages with mindfulness and imaginative thinking, encouraging flow and bodily wisdom as a pathway to dance making and performance. Allowing precision as well as 'open ends' to come into play, we will look at how pieces emerge, and the universes they create.
