    Oyster Spiel

    Billie Hanne

    The performance project ‘Oyster Spiel’ commits to dance & speech. When dance allows the sensual, imaginative and affective powers of speech, then the aesthetic value of language can be witnessed and experienced through the body moving. Here the specificity of each movement aligns with words being abstracted from their natural context. This way words redeem their primal meaning, their energetic force, and the body can be seen afresh. Namely from the perspective of this most vital human component: our capacity to speak. This leads to refined choreography, detailed phrasing and precise compositional work. Here dance is given a rare dimension and depth, which requires the core of the body to strengthen so its contours can soften and be newly defined in space and time.  On a practical level, initially, time will be invested to individual technical work and exploration. This means going into anatomic imagery and through simple exercises bringing speech into one’s dancing vocabulary. Clear instruction and guidance creates a safe framework to do so. Individual work is followed by compositional work, which gives room to placing one’s material beside that of others. We watch and do, watch and do and this way the dynamics of dance-speech-space work will become clear and weave the fabric of a piece that can be presented.  Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € | Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the contemporary class Mon & Wed 18:15-19:45 "The Complex Phrase" deals with constructing and deconstructing a phrase. Here movements individuate and each action is allowed to be crude, pertinent and natural. The moves are rich in themselves and various. Combined they work effectively when they align body with space. Speed, texture, depth, power, sensuality, opening and strengthening, spatial intuition and dynamics are examples of elements that can come into focus. This class is for people with movement experience wanting to further their experience. Fee: For people joining the performance project: 110 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 100 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 €

    The Skin of the Space

    Enrico L'Abbate aka Rilaben

    This performance project wants to focus on the presence through the quality of our movement. We will use ideas developed from postmodern dance practice till today through release and improvisation research. In order to reach to an unity of intention and freedom. SKIN as a concept, will be a metaphor for our intuition, a layer of opacity that covers our body, but also a surface that defines volumes. It transmits perceptions, and drives us until the walls of the architectural SPACE/a physical perimeter. We will research the relation between body and structure, transition between different movement, and different ideas. Crossing a space/time, in which reality and abstraction will become our unique way of being here and now, in a condensation of past and future. Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € | Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de Additionally you can join the contemporary class: It is a class based on Alwin Nikolais post body system, suitable for people in all stages of their dance development. The class includes elements of diverse techniques such as pilates, feldenkrais, body-mind centering, release and improvisation research. We develop a warm up and a mind/body awareness asking ourselves which qualities can we develop between time space and motion. Through dance we like to release and expand our range of tolerance and possibilities.  Mon & Wed 18:15-19:45 | Fee: For people joining the performance project: 110 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 100 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 €
