Professional training with Katja Mustonen

  • Mon 11.12.2017 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

This Contemporary Dance training is a combination of yoga, floor work and release based techniques. We start with a warm-up that slowly awakens the body-mind, engages the breath and gradually prepares the body thru simple movement patterns. Emphasizing the sense of gravity and ability to move with ease, the warm-up is followed by phrases that build up towards more complexity, focusing on: changes of level, locomotion, directions in space and altering tone of the body. The class aims at supporting and developing both, the gain of physical strength as well as the effortlessness of the body in motion.

Katja Mustonen is a Finnish dancer, teacher and dance maker, who currently works and lives in Frankfurt, Germany. She graduated from the Vocational Dance School in Outukumpu, Finland 2004 as dancer, and holds a MA degree in “Contemporary Dance Pedagogy” from the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany. In the artistic field she is curious about the diverse possibilities and ever-changing landscapes within movement and improvisation, especially when it comes to performance and states of presence. She believes that art and life are not separate, and keeps pondering upon the question, how dance as a tool can be useful in making difference in individuals?

Professional training with Jason Jacobs

  • Mon 18.12.2017 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte 6 €, 10er-Karte 35 €, Monatskarte 50 €

In this contemporary training, emphasis is placed on developing movement quality by activating the participants’ center, softening the body’s joints, and releasing the weight of the body into the floor. Improvisation exercises will be guided with the use of visual imagery to bring attention to specific movement characteristics and encourage the participants’ individual approach to movement. Following a gentle warm-up, the class will increase in complexity involving set movement material. Through integrating partner-work the participants will have the possibility to explore dancing with others. The training will challenge coordination, agility and control. The aim is to provide a focused energetic movement experience.

Jason Jacobs is a dance teacher, maker and performer. He has worked with artists including Hofesh Shechter, Johannes Wieland, Alonzo King and Dwight Rhoden. Together with Ekaterine Giorgadze, he is part of the artistic collaboration MuddyBoots. Jason’s choreographic work has been presented at Hofesh Shechter’s In Good Company 2011, tanzhaus nrw, Mousonturm, International Tanz Festival Ingolstadt, and TanzArt Ost/West. As a teacher, he uses improvisational tools to encourage awareness and cultivate an understanding of movement quality. To further improve his artistic development and refine his ability to communicate movement, Jason joined the Master’s Program Contemporary Dance Education at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
