Workshops 2017: „Moving body perspectives“

Tanzplattform Rhein-Main is offering several workshops throughout the year 2017. The different approaches aim to help enhance awareness and support professional development through discovering, exploring and experiencing movement. The workshops provide access to alternatives perspectives on movement analysis and its embodiment. The workshop series “Moving Body Perspectives“ aims to facilitate and deepen understanding by serving as a basis to (re)connect, embody and rethink movement and personal development.

Contemporary dance methodology has many somatic influences – often we only realize this when we deepen our knowledge in a specific method. Many different approaches and techniques have been developed by professionals based on their own specific physical needs, as well as their years of dancing and teaching experience.

In this sense, „Moving Body Perspectives“ offers multiple opportunities to try out various techniques and methods that can greatly contribute to improving daily training, physical awareness, artistic practice, and general quality of life. The workshops can also serve as a good starting point to delve deeper into one of more of the different methods being offered, thus opening up new perspectives on various aspects of one’s own professional practice.

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.

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.

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.
