Professional Training with Michael Langeneckert

  • Thu 21.09.2017 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte 6 €, 10er-Karte 35 €, Monatskarte 50 €

For his contemporary training, Michael Langeneckert draws from 30 years of experience as a professional dancer, choreographer and head trainer. His classes combine release technique, bodywork, improvisation and conditioning. The floor work technique is preceded by warming-up the body on multiple levels. This then advances into defined variations. The focus then shifts to the development of physical intensity and complex movement sequences in space. Central element of the training is the continuous flow of movement and building a connection to beats and energetic sounds, which support the physical body. This is a technical dance training oriented on current tendencies in contemporary dance.

Michael Langeneckert works as a rehearsal director at the Staatstheater Mainz since 2015. He received his training as a dancer in Freiburg and has since worked as a freelancer both at multiple municipal and state theatres in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. He most recently worked with choreographers such as e.g. Sharon Eyal, Johannes Wieland, Club Guy and Roni, Guy Nader and Maria Campos, Koen Augustijnen, Garry Stewart. In Freiburg, he directed his own independent dance company Rebound Prod from 2001 until 2007. He choreographed numerous pieces for his company and was also guest choreographer at various theatres in different formats. As a teacher for contemporary dance, he has taught theatre companies across Germany, at independent centres such as the Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Marameo Berlin, K3 Hamburg as well as in Holland, Austria, Hungary and Switzerland.

It is a combination of the Indian Classical Kathak Dance, Folk and Contemporary Movement Vocabulary. It has lot of powerful footwork, hand combinations, rhythms and spins.
Class starts with Meditative posture and Asanas (Asana is a specific posture which strengthens Mind and Body). We continue to conditioning the body through Yoga and movement and it includes body toning and Martial arts exercises which are later incorporated into the movement phrase.
Playing with momentum, suspension and dynamic floor routines (which combines speed and centrifugal energy). It also combines floor exploration with antigravity falls, recovery, agile partnering and strength based technique which allows the individual to discover organic body rhythms and floor connections. Participates can expect to learn certain Indian classical Mudras from the dance form of Kathak & Bharatnatyam which can be incorporated in to the final phrase.
Classes will be focused on – Speed, musicality, strength, moving in the space, rhythm, emotions, different movement vocabulary Phrases, movement precision and efficiency. After more than 9 years as a close follower of David Zambrano, I will share a number of phrases which experiments on the flying low principles.

Narendra Patil is the first Indian contemporary dancer who has got scholarship and has studied under David Zambrano as a part of a 30 days intensive workshop of “Flying Low” and “Passing Through” technique in Berlin, Germany, 2014. He was one of the 45 dancers amongst 489 applicants around the world to be selected. Again he got selected for EXIN for 30 days Flying Low and Passing Through intensives which was conducted in Madrid, Spain September 2016.

Using the body as our instrument is the daily practice of a dancer, but how to add vocal expression to our performing? How to feed voice or text back into our bodies as inspiration for movement? This workshop opens the toolbox to using voice in improvised performance, for dancers or movers in the performing and circus arts: skills that can also be transferred to the creation of set performance material. Inspired by Al Wunder’s Theatre of the Ordinary, Ruth Zaporah’s Action Theater and the work of Andrew Morrish, this workshop promotes an experiential way of learning. Participants discover what they like doing, what they like seeing and take responsibility for developing their own style of theatrical self-presentation.

What about jumping?
This class is inspired by the human capacity to jump, to lift off, to propel and to land. How does this sensation live as an energetic dynamic in the body? We begin with a gentle warm-up inspired by somatic and release techniques where breath serves as a fundamental support and movement ease is encouraged through body alignment. The class progresses in space emphasizing a sense of weight, rebound, momentum and spatial dynamics inspired through the act of jumping. Phrase material is then layered together to create a frame to explore these elements. The aim is to ignite a sense of vitality in the body that is continuous and alive.

As a dancer, performer and teaching artist, Ilana Reynold’s influences are based in Afro-Brazilian dance/Capeoira, release techniques, somatic practices and dance improvisation. She began her BA in dance at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst/USA and finished her studies at Escola da Fundaçao de Dança in Salvador, Brazil. Between 2004 and 2012, Ilana danced professionally with Brazilian choreographer Augusto Soledade in Miami, FL. She toured nationally and internationally with the company as a dancer, rehearsal director, repertory teacher and worked extensively with children. In 2008 Ilana received two artistic scholarships through the State of Florida to work with choreographer Christine Brunel in Essen, Germany. Deeply inspired by their exchange, she moved to Germany in 2012. Within a year, she co-founded Lake Studios Berlin, an artist initiated rehearsal/performance/production space, where she has produced and curated works of her own and others. She continues to teach contemporary dance approaches to students and professionals in Germany and abroad. For the past two years she tours her latest collaborative work LIEGEN 0 with performer Philipe Rives in street performance festivals around Europe. Currently Ilana is studying for her Master’s Degree in contemporary dance education at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende und Kunst in Frankfurt am Main and is an awarded scholar of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes.

Ideas are discarded. Plans are cancelled. Projects prove to be unfeasible. In Makulatur Frankfurt director Ksenia Ravvina and choreographer Kristina Veit focus on the artistically peripheral, the creative surplus, which normally lies outside our line of vision. For this, they called upon their artistic colleagues to allow them to use ideas and concepts, which did not make it beyond the bottom drawer. With the help of architect Jan Wind the artist duo are creating an installation – on the basis of the submitted material – in which hidden parts of the creative processes are turned into a spatial experience. On the basis of this installation, they will develop a piece in winter 2017, which will be shown at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Staatstheater Darmstadt.

  • 19 Euro | erm. 9€ Tickets

The tension grows almost unbearable as ten performers from Bruno Beltrão’s Grupo de Rua step onto the stage. Hesitantly, the dancers grope through the darkness until suddenly a whirlwind of jumps, head spins and somersaults break loose. Brazilian choreographer Beltrão is one of the shooting stars of the contemporary dance scene. He has added new aspects to dance by interweaving the movements and attitudes of street dance, breakdance and hip hop with principles of contemporary dance. This has produced expressive choreographies, which captivate audiences worldwide with their physical presence and virtuosity. “INOAH”, the company’s newest piece, takes on an entirely new dimension. Electric like a stormy night, it is also a call for social change – negotiating the irreconcilable differences currently running through Brazilian society. No language skills required

  • Staatstheater Darmstadt, Kleines Haus, Georg-Büchner-Platz 1, 64283 Darmstadt
  • ab 10 Euro | erm. ab 9,25 Euro Tickets

In “Good Passports Bad Passports”, Helena Waldmann delves into a subject that momentarily moves our society like almost no other: borders. Why can I freely navigate 177 countries with my German passport? And why do people from poorer countries not have this freedom of movement? Whenever we define ourselves as members of a specific group, we invariably exclude others. The dance director translates the wealth represented by a country into two ensembles: a contemporary dance company and a group of nouveau cirque artists. A man-made wall separates the different communities and their values. Citizens of Darmstadt fuel a tumultuous competition between dance and acrobatics and sort good and bad in a world that seems to be composed of no more than nations.

Olivia Hyunsin Kim delights in rubbing artistic genres and physical techniques the wrong way. Be it postmodern dance, aerobics, minimal art and hard rock, pop or high culture – this young choreographer is interested in the stereotypes and clichés caused by various forms of expression and the power imbalances that they perpetuate between Us and the Others. Kim’s special perspective takes its strength from experiences being German-Korean. In her newest piece, she takes on one of the most popular genres: the musical. Inspired by “Miss Saigon” – one of the most successful shows on Broadway and one, which has simultaneously provoked numerous controversies on the representation of Asian women, she has created a musical talent show that is both grotesque and entertaining.

Frankfurt last hosted Berlin choreographer Isabelle Schad with her choreography “Collective Jumps” during the German Dance Platform 2016. Now she returns with a piece that again showcases her unusual choreographic approach – one that is deeply embedded in the corporeal and simultaneously imbued with influences from the visual arts. In “Solo for Lea”, Schad continues exploring the relationship between body, movement and image to create an intimate piece for the unique dancer that is Lea Moro: Schad re-organizes the dancer’s deconstructed body and plays with analogies and formal aspects of cubism, as well as Picasso’s drawings composed of a single line. The result is a dance portrait, which plays with and reveals the specific features of Moro’s body and its rhythms, contours, colours and energies. No language skills required

The Tanztag Rhein-Main is back. We invite everyone with a love for dance to try out a wide array of dance styles and movement practices in over 160 trial classes in seven cities across the region, all happening on one single day. From classical and contemporary dance, historical court dances, folk dances from different regions to hiphop or swing: the Tanztag has something for everyone. This project is one-of-a-kind in Germany and not only aims to clearly show just how diverse the dance landscape in the Rhine-Main region really is, but also seeks to move people of all ages and backgrounds beyond city limits. The day will end with a grand celebration of dance at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm.

In the 1920’s, tea dances were social highlights and informal possibilities to meet new acquaintances. Tea and canapés were served; there was dancing, laughter, mutual appraisals, a testing of the waters, profound talks and more dancing. After the enormous success of last year’s tea dance, the Hessische Staatsballet wants to revive this tradition anew as part of the Tanzfestival Rhein-Main and bring back memories that dance is not only something nice to look at, but can also be experienced by all – with all the happiness that this brings. This year, we are hosting a dance both in Wiesbaden, as well as in Darmstadt, for everyone who wishes to swing their hips to live music.

We live in an age of constant stress and overload. The performance duo Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt are undaunted by this situation and have initiated an experiment that is both humorous and exciting: “Heute mobben wir die Birds” is a lecture-performance for people age 11 and up. More than a mere introduction to performance art, the piece also confronts itself and the audience with the fact that everything is somehow interconnected and relevant in its own way. Not knowing is no longer an option when trying to find meaning in the jungle of life. Flooding the brain with information feeds the web of thoughts and speculations. That leaves it up to us to organize things and communicate with them. But how? In German

When does something feel close or intimate? Does intimacy necessarily mean being near to each other? May Zarhy and Hermann Heisig explore the physical and mental sensation of proximity and distance. They thereby reference a lifestyle not only central to dance makers working internationally and constantly on the road, but also shared by many people in this age of Skype, Instagram, and budget flights. In “Next to Near”, Zarhy – best known in Frankfurt for her productions with the choreographers collective MAMAZA – and Heisig, specialist for slapstick and subtle choreographic timing, stake out a field of detailed communication by readjusting their relationship to the audience and a musical trio headed by composer Tian Rotteveel.

“Sunny, yesterday my heart was filled with pain. Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.” Bobby Hebb’s often-covered song from the year 1966 is one of the greatest earworms in pop history. Now, the hit song now serves as the starting point for a turbulent group piece by France-based choreographer Emanuel Gat, who has created a show, which brings dance and music together in a very special way in collaboration with former dancer and shooting star of the French electro scene Awir Leon. Gat gives free rein to allow his dancers to react to Leon’s live sound. Out of the self-regulating choreographic system, polyphonic structures and fragile movement patterns emerge that echo like a single note only to reside again. Sounds and movements merge into breathtakingly beautiful artistic synaesthesia. No language skills required

Reaching the intangible

a MIND THE DANCE lab about documenting artistic practice

In this two day workshop, Ulla Mäkinen (FIN) and Martin Streit (DE) will propose tools and pathways to practice documentation of one’s own artistic practice as dancer and/or dance teacher. We will work with movement as well as documenting it – and reflect around ideas what it means to document contemporary dance for us. Dancing and documenting together might also give us insight on how documenting our practice could be beneficial for ourselves as artists as well as for the whole field of dance.

This workshop is based on MIND THE DANCE, a digital publication of the REFLEX Europe project. The workshop is free of charge for the participants.
www.mindthedance.com

Facilitators:
Ulla Mäkinen is a Finnish dancer and dance teacher, currently working as the director of the dance department of North Karelia College Outokumpu in Finland. She graduated from the MA program of HfMDK Frankfurt am Main in 2010 and has been working as a teacher and dancer around Europe, North America and Asia. She is a part of the ASIRC, the Axis Syllabus International Research Community.
Martin Streit is connected to the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main. He works in the Media Department at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. In the dance research project Motion Bank he was coordinator for the Piecemaker development. He is the technology coordinator for IDOCDE and researcher in the REFLEX Europe project.

TIME: 26.10. and 27.10. from 9:00 – 13:00
You can come for both days or only one day – please mention this when you sign in!
FEE: The workshop is free (thanks to the Erasmus+ funded project REFLEX Europe).
REGISTRATION: Please register at anmeldung@tanzplattformrheinmain.de. We kindly ask you to sign in in advance and cancel your place latest at 22.10.2017.

Ideas are discarded. Plans are cancelled. Projects prove to be unfeasible.

For this, they called upon their artistic colleagues to allow them to use ideas and concepts, which did not make it beyond the bottom drawer. With the help of architect Jan Wind the artist duo are creating an installation – on the basis of the submitted material – in which hidden parts of the creative processes are turned into a spatial experience. On the basis of this installation, they will develop a piece in winter 2017, which will be shown at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Staatstheater Darmstadt.

  • 20,90 Euro / erm. 9,90 Euro Tickets

“MEETING” is a choreographic study stripped to the bare essentials. The work pairs Antony Hamilton’s compulsive choreography with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice.
The two performers share space with 64 robotic percussion instruments. A relentless stream of activity unfolds, where the bodies enter states of heightened physical and mental agency, with all actions carried by the meditative pulse of the machine beat.
A focused recital, with Hamilton’s unique physical grammar and Macindoe’s bespoke musical instrument making, MEETING composes the body, the space and the robots into a dynamic and riveting choreographic sound installation.

Choreographer, Director and Performer: Antony Hamilton

In “Eine Winterreise”, Tim Plegge sets out on a choreographic journey. The ballet follows in the steps of his prior narrative ballets, which began at the Hessische Staatsballet with “Aschenputtel” followed by “Kaspar Hauser” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Yet “Eine Winterreise” abandons the previously explored path of stringent narration. In fragmentary episodes, it follows the lyrical self of the song cycle in search of the source his own longing. The ballet tells a story of growth and decay, of desire and of a state of searching that comes from the contemplative reflection of self. Wiesbaden composer Hans Zender has reinterpreted and rearranged Franz Schubert’s “Winterreise” – a milestone of Romantic song. Now this interpretation finds its way together with Tim Plegge’s ballet creation onto the stage of its hometown.
Featuring the Hessische Staatsorchester Wiesbaden directed by Benjamin Schneider.

Ideas are discarded. Plans are cancelled. Projects prove to be unfeasible. In Makulatur Frankfurt director Ksenia Ravvina and choreographer Kristina Veit focus on the artistically peripheral, the creative surplus, which normally lies outside our line of vision. For this, they called upon their artistic colleagues to allow them to use ideas and concepts, which did not make it beyond the bottom drawer. With the help of architect Jan Wind the artist duo are creating an installation – on the basis of the submitted material – in which hidden parts of the creative processes are turned into a spatial experience. On the basis of this installation, they will develop a piece in winter 2017, which will be shown at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Staatstheater Darmstadt.

Hot and cold, mirror and rules, sell-out and total consumerism – “Sale” contemplates all parts of social coexistence as a challenge: the challenge of mastering life, society and capitalism in general, where we all simply want to belong. Following his residency at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, dancer and choreographer Eyal Dadon, who is considered one of the most exciting protagonists in a new generation of Israeli dance makers, is presenting his piece “Sale” for the first time in Europe. Inspired by reality and social coexistence, Dadon combines detailed, precise movement sequences with his very own brand of humour – thus holding up the mirror to the audience.

Is it possible to dance a Haka version of the “Goldberg Variations”? And what happens when the love for Taylor Swift meets Yvonne Rainer’s “No Manifesto”? Berlin choreographer Christoph Winkler brings a very special coming-of-age story to the “Urban Soul Café”: in this piece, Aloalii Tapu – hip hop dancer with Polynesian roots, trained in contemporary dance and recipient of the 2016 theatre prize “Der Faust” for this very performance – deals with various aspects of dance history that inspired him – from Pina Bausch to Steve Paxton – and reads them from a non-European, non-white perspective, without hesitating to contribute his own (pop)cultural background.

The workshop series Dance composition & BMC® will be offered by Adriana Almeida on seven weekends, and this experience does not only open up new dimensions and creative possibilities for dance creation and performance practice, but also creates a multifaceted movement material as well as surprising physical and poetic research approaches. The performer learns, through specific exercises and touch techniques, different movement qualities and the visual power of his/her experience with the various body systems, which allows him / her to substantially extend the individual range of motion and movement vocabulary.

Dr. Adriana Almeida Pees is a certified Body-Mind Centering® Teacher, Infant-Developmental Movement Educator (IDME) and somatic movement therapist and lecturer for various BMC programmes. She is director of the South American BMC Education Programme at the School for Body-Mind Centering (SBMC) since 2009

In Pia Kraemer’s Dance Therapy workshop, the participants focus on the transition from stillness to movement, individually and as a group experience. Starting with various awareness and focusing exercises, we discover the meditative quality of movement and dance and the possibilities of deep relaxation, finding one’s centre, breathing and flow, while moving and while still, inner balance and harmony. Furthermore, we try to create a movement ritual, shaped by the group’s dynamic. The aim is to discover the healing and positive power of structured physical experience.
