In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017
The performance collective Lower Left will be teaching a week-long intensive, that consists of the two workshops Re:Wire into CI in the morning and Ensemble Thinking (ET) in the afternooon. ET is a system of collaborative compositional practices developed by Lower Left. It offers dynamic tools for creating dances in groups, solos and with a partner by breaking habitual patterns and opening opportunities for expression. ET is open to anyone, regardless of background, aesthetics, or physical capabilities.
People of diverse physicalities are very welcome. Unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users.

21.7. Performance with Andrew Wass/Lower Left
Originally formed in 1994 in San Diego, Lower Left Performance Collective is dedicated to the spontaneous combustion inherent in the collaborative process. Choosing to rely on the combined artistic vitality of its members in both artistic and organizational aspects, Lower Left’s collective model and the resulting innovation and openness have become their trademark. Lower Left’s choreographic work deals with personal, social and political issues using original movement vocabulary that is created collaboratively as well as individually. Performance works range from technical, highly physical dances to complex theatrical multimedia dance plays. Performances travel across the spectrum of deliberation, from the highly predetermined to the spontaneously composed. Lower Left members live in three different time zones on two different continents. Margaret Paek - Appleton, WI, Nina Martin - Marfa and Fort Worth, TX, Leslie Scates - Houston, Texas ; Shelley Senter - New York; Andrew Wass and Kelly Dalrymple-Wass - Berlin.
