Performance Projects

The performance projects are open for all who are interested in intensive training and a rehearsing process. The aim is to get a clearer insight into artistic research and performing. The contemporary training on Monday and Wednesday is open for everybody. Movement experience required.

    Shape of Moving Waves - the Group Experience (fully booked)

    Giacomo Mattogno, Enrico Paglialunga

    This performance project invites you to join an interactive group experience through movement, sound, and space. “For physics, the sound is an oscillation (a movement in space) made by particles (atoms and molecules) and generated by a music source“; we are constantly surrounded by a multitude of different sounds that generates a never-ending vibration-movement of particles that we are not able to see. Together with the live electronic music by the composer Giacomo Mattogno (Junction to Humanity), we investigate a possible representation of the sound’s physics and its propagation in air, through a movement performance. A grid on the floor, associated with different sound parameters, suggest information for the movement orientation in space, the intensity, the speed, dynamics, and qualities. Taking actively-physically part of the artistic research and the creation process, from the abstract to the practical you get the chance to approach your own body language in an experimental approach, working with sounds, images, drawings, individual-group exercises. Movement and musical tasks are used as a common vocabulary; we explore themes such as dancing in a group, dancing as a couple, listening to sounds in the dark, generating sounds through dancing, questioning the emotional impact-influence of sound on movement. The live music, besides improving the individual musical skills, becomes a fundamental element for the analysis of the sound’s physics. Three are the keywords in this project: movement, sound, playground.

    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 €
