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.

  • Einzelkarte 6 €, 10er-Karte 35 €, Monatskarte 50 €

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.

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.
