Professional Training with Ilana Reynolds

  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

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.

Zwischen 2004 und 2012 tanzte Ilana beim brasilianischen Choreografen Augusto Soledade in Miami (USA). Anschließend begleitete sie die Kompanie auf nationalen und internationalen Reisen und arbeitete während dieser Zeit als Tänzerin, Probeleiterin und Repertoire-Lehrerin, wobei sie ebenfalls intensiv mit Kindern arbeitete. 2008 erhielt Ilana zwei Kunststipendien des Staates Florida, um mit der Choreografin Christine Brunel in Essen zusammenarbeiten zu können. Ausgehend von der Inspiration, die mit diesem Austausch für sie verbunden war, entschloss sich Ilana 2012 nach Deutschland zu ziehen. Innerhalb eines Jahres begründete sie die Lake Studios Berlin mit, ein von Künstler*innen geschaffener Probe-, Performance- und Produktionsort, an welchem sie ihre Arbeiten und die Arbeit anderer Künstler*innen produzieren und kuratieren konnte. Daneben arbeitet sie weiterhin als Lehrerin für zeitgenössischen Tanz und unterrichtet sowohl Studierende und professionelle Tanzschaffende in Deutschland und im Ausland. In den vergangenen zwei Jahren tourte sie mit ihrer Arbeit –LIEGEN 0-, welche in Kollaboration mit dem Performer Philipe Rives entstand, zu europäischen Streetart-Festivals. Aktuell absolviert Ilana ihren Master in Contemporary Dance Education an der Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt am Main und erhält ein Stipendium der Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes.

Tanzklub 15 – 25 | Take the 9

Ich bin in den Raum gekommen. Reihe mich in eure Linie ein. Ich beginne meine Gedanken zu vergessen, ich höre auf daran zu denken, was passieren wird. Es ist so still. Was würde deine Hand machen, wenn ich sie berühren will?
Die Körper krachen ineinander, rollen über den Boden, tanzen, erschöpfen sich, wirken zusammen, tragen die Verantwortung und suchen nach Wegen, um den Tanz fortzusetzen. Es macht Spaß. Bin ich da? Oder ist nur ein Teil von mir dort?
Dieses Stück ist zwischen 1994 und 2004 geboren. Seitdem entwickelt es sich. Im Moment befinden wir uns im Tanzsaal und lassen das Stück durch Begegnung mit Bewegung wachsen. Der eigene Körper, die verschiedenen Körper um uns herum, das Suchen, sowie die Verwirrungen, die die jungen Tänzer*innen in ihrem Leben begleiten. Es wurde auf Improvisationsbasis entwickelt, die die Sinne als Einstiegspunkt zum Bewegen nutzt. Es erforscht, wie man Bedingungen für einen Solo- und Gruppentanz schafft, den Zustand des Seins im Moment, sowie den kreativen Fluss und das Auftreten von Engagement

Mit: Sophie Oettinger, Lena Gauly, Nora Eggers, Susanne Mohr, Sarah Mestmacher, Deborah Schmidt-Riese, Laura Giudici, Lu Pahl, Nina Frank
Leitung: Ewelina Zielonka

Tanzklub 60+ | Alter ist nichts für Feiglinge

Jeder Mensch altert, jedoch geht jede*r anders damit um. Altern bedeutet weit mehr als das Fortschreiten von Jahren. Den positiven Aspekten wie Erfahrung, Wissen und Gelassenheit stehen die negativen Aspekte wie Nachlassen der Kraft, Vergesslichkeit und Tod gegenüber.
„Mit dem Altwerden ist es wie mit Auf-einen-Berg-Steigen: Je höher man steigt, desto mehr schwinden die Kräfte – aber umso weiter sieht man.“ (Ingmar Bergmann)
Zu der Ausstellung GREY IS THE NEW PINK im Weltkulturen Museum, die sich mit dem Älterwerden auseinandersetzt, haben wir eine ‚performative Führung‘ entwickelt. Diese ist Grundlage für unser Stück Alter ist nichts für Feiglinge. Es ist die Auseinandersetzung damit, wie wir altern und altern möchten.

Mit: Karin Arnold, Heike Bengel, Angelika Bogenschütz, Inge-Maria Böhm, Angela Braun-Krähenhöfer, Barbara Bumann, Licet de Rodriguez, Angelika Geyer, Christel Gold-Hellenkamp, Michael Götze, Renate Hermann, Barbara Jakob, Adelheid Käberich, Alexander Kaestner, Petra Lochner, Adelheid Nake, Michèle Resnik, Jannie Reuels, Anne Rondeau, Claus-H.

Tanzklub 25+ | 361° – humans in structures – structures in humans

Strukturen sind Beziehungsgefüge, wobei diese Gefüge mehr sind als die Summe der einzelnen Elemente, aus denen sie bestehen.
Strukturen sind nicht stabil und geschlossen, sondern veränderlich und offen. Die Elemente hängen alle voneinander ab, jede Veränderung eines Elements zieht die Veränderung der übrigen nach sich.
Punkt – Linie – Kreis ⇨ kleiner Tiger

Tanzklub 60+ | Alter ist nichts für Feiglinge

Jeder Mensch altert, jedoch geht jede*r anders damit um. Altern bedeutet weit mehr als das Fortschreiten von Jahren. Den positiven Aspekten wie Erfahrung, Wissen und Gelassenheit stehen die negativen Aspekte wie Nachlassen der Kraft, Vergesslichkeit und Tod gegenüber.
„Mit dem Altwerden ist es wie mit Auf-einen-Berg-Steigen: Je höher man steigt, desto mehr schwinden die Kräfte – aber umso weiter sieht man.“ (Ingmar Bergmann)
Zu der Ausstellung GREY IS THE NEW PINK im Weltkulturen Museum, die sich mit dem Älterwerden auseinandersetzt, haben wir eine ‚performative Führung‘ entwickelt. Diese ist Grundlage für unser Stück Alter ist nichts für Feiglinge. Es ist die Auseinandersetzung damit, wie wir altern und altern möchten.

Tanzklub 25+ | 361° – humans in structures – structures in humans

Strukturen sind Beziehungsgefüge, wobei diese Gefüge mehr sind als die Summe der einzelnen Elemente, aus denen sie bestehen.
Strukturen sind nicht stabil und geschlossen, sondern veränderlich und offen. Die Elemente hängen alle voneinander ab, jede Veränderung eines Elements zieht die Veränderung der übrigen nach sich.
Punkt – Linie – Kreis ⇨ kleiner Tiger

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

This contemporary training offers a warmup grounded in principles and methods from Bartenieff Fundamentals developmental movement practice. Guided by both set movement patterns and individual explorations, the focus is on renewal and deepening of our earliest infant experiments in movement, breath and sensation. This is accompanied by perception warmups drawn from the Tuning Scores practice of Lisa Nelson. In the second half of the training, tools from the tuning practice are explored further through partner and group improvisations where our sense of composition is awakened and practiced through the sensations and effects of our internal and external environment.

Miranda Glikson is an independent dance artist and educator based in Australia and Germany. She worked with ballet and contemporary companies in Australia and Germany, as a performer, company trainer and choreographic assistant. Miranda holds a Masters in Contemporary Dance Education from Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts. She is currently undertaking a practice-led creative works PhD at the Queensland University of Technology Brisbane, researching place, embodiment and site-located dance practice.

  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

A warm-up combining different types of practices. Mixing notions of body awareness, Alexander technique, ballet, budo training, multi directional and spiral coordination and extensive stretching. This class offers the possibility to get your body activated and awake, strengthening different types of muscle chain and stimulating new forms of coordination and rhythms. This practice asks for a form of spontaneity and curiosity.

Fabrice Mazliah (1972, Geneva Switzerland) is a choreographer and performer based in Frankfurt/Germany. After studying dance in Geneva, at The National School of Athens and in the Rudra Bejart Atelier in Lausanne, he was part of the Nederlands Dans Theater company in Holland before joining in 1997 the Ballett Frankfurt and further into the Forsythe Company until summer 2015.
In parallel to his work as a dancer performer, since 2002 Mazliah has created and produced many works of his own and in collaboration with others, pieces such as The Manufactured series Duet#1 (2018), In Act and Thought (2015) for the Forsythe Company, Eifo Efi (2013), Cover up (2011) with the mamaza collective and many more. Fabrice has been teaching workshops based on movement research and improvisation, in places such as: P.A.R.T.S (Brussels), La Manufacture (Lausanne) and others. In his recent work he is occupied with the relation between objects, environment, movement and language, attempting at developing new forms of narrativity and poetry.
He is interested in forming alternative formats of working conditions, such as his initiation _ HOOD – A Platform for Creative Exchange_ made of a group of former members of the Forsythe Company, supported by PACT Zollverein Germany between 2015 and 2018. The HOOD model was born of a need for a cohesive artistic community situated between the splintered
economy of freelance work and the fixed institutional structure of a company.

In parallel to his work as a dancer performer, since 2002 Mazliah has created and produced many works of his own and in collaboration with others, pieces such as The Manufactured series Duet#1 (2018), In Act and Thought (2015) for the Forsythe Company, Eifo Efi (2013), Cover up (2011) with the mamaza collective and many more. Fabrice has been teaching workshops based on movement research and improvisation, in places such as: P.A.R.T.S (Brussels), La Manufacture (Lausanne) and others. In his recent work he is occupied with the relation between objects, environment, movement and language, attempting at developing new forms of narrativity and poetry.
He is interested in forming alternative formats of working conditions, such as his initiation _ HOOD – A Platform for Creative Exchange_ made of a group of former members of the Forsythe Company, supported by PACT Zollverein Germany between 2015 and 2018. The HOOD model was born of a need for a cohesive artistic community situated between the splintered
economy of freelance work and the fixed institutional structure of a company.

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

This class draws from experiences with release-based and traditional modern dance techniques, from the work with contact as well as Forsythe improvisation methods and yoga. Class will begin with a simple warm-up on the floor or with improv exercises focusing on establishing a feeling for the center and the basic connections of the moving body as well as an efficient use of weight and breath. Class will continue with exercises at increasingly higher intensity and with an emphasis on an ever larger range of motion, clear and efficient transitions and an appropriate use of dynamic changes. The class culminates with a longer movement sequence meant to give room to apply technical discoveries that may have been made throughout the class while at the same time allowing for personal experiences in regards to space, the connection to fellow dancers and/or to the pure pleasure of moving. Falling and failure are highly encouraged.

Ildikó Tóth studied dance in education at Rotterdam Dance Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating, a DAAD scholarship led her to New York City in 2005 where she worked with Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company, Susan Marshall & Company as well as Kota Yamazaki among others. Since November 2012 she is a member of the Forsythe Company. She has taught for the department of education at Nederlands Dans Theater among others, and has been assisting Bill Young with staging new work for students at Barnard College in New York City.

  • Fri 10.05.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

Paul’s class is designed to warm, stretch, release and tone the whole body. Not based in any singular contemporary technique, although influenced by yoga, release technique, Kung Fu and floor work. The class focuses on grounding the body’s energy and power in dynamic movement. The exercises aim at articulating the spine as the instigator of movement and at working strongly the core to increase weight transfer ability out into the space. Opening up different sequential movement pathways to find power and grace. Continually working in and out of the floor seamlessly and efficiently. Physically demanding.

Australian born dance-artist Paul White has been living in Germany since 2011. Until 2017, he was employed by Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, as the first dancer to join the company after Bausch’s death. His twenty year long career history as a performer and artistic collaborator includes working with companies and directors; Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre), Tanja Liedtke, Nigel Jamieson and Garry Stewart (Australian Dance Theatre), Narelle Benjamin, Kristina Chan, Martin Del Amo, Danzahoy.
Paul is the Honorary Patron of Tanzrauschen Wuppertal, a dance-on-film society founded in Wuppertal, and is a founding member of the Free Arts Scene Society, Wuppertal Germany. He is the recipient of eight national and international awards for his performance and choreographic work. (Australian Dance Awards, Helpmann Awards, Tänzer des Jahres, UK Critics Circle Award)
In 2019, Paul is looking forward to choregraphic residencies in Limerick, Frankfurt and Chicago for various insitutions, and thrilled to have further presentation opportunities for the piece Cella, co-choreographed with long-term friend Narelle Benjamin.

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

Kasia’s class is experimenting with diverse movement qualities, combining technique and different dynamics with personal interpretation and sensitivity. The class consists of phrases built upon spatial orientation, movement complexity and coordination, allowing space for individual movement exploration. This practice aims to establish energetic patterns and interconnectedness of the body parts. Being a result of personal investigation, this training is influenced by improvisation and classical training.

Katarzyna Kizior – dancer, teacher and choreographer born in Poland. She studied ballet and folk dance at the National Ballet School. Since 2006 she has been working with Swirls Dance Company and The Opera House in Warsaw, Polin- Museum and with The Dramatic Theater in Warsaw. Apart from dance experience, she choreographs for TV formats such as So you think you can dance Poland, films and commercials. In 2015 she obtained a master’s degree in Contemporary Dance Education from the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt. She expanded her classical dance background to more awareness-related work like Release Technique, Improvisation, and Yoga. The strength and value of her experience lies in diversity and multiple genres.

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

Kasia’s class is experimenting with diverse movement qualities, combining technique and different dynamics with personal interpretation and sensitivity. The class consists of phrases built upon spatial orientation, movement complexity and coordination, allowing space for individual movement exploration. This practice aims to establish energetic patterns and interconnectedness of the body parts. Being a result of personal investigation, this training is influenced by improvisation and classical training.

Katarzyna Kizior – dancer, teacher and choreographer born in Poland. She studied ballet and folk dance at the National Ballet School. Since 2006 she has been working with Swirls Dance Company and The Opera House in Warsaw, Polin- Museum and with The Dramatic Theater in Warsaw. Apart from dance experience, she choreographs for TV formats such as So you think you can dance Poland, films and commercials. In 2015 she obtained a master’s degree in Contemporary Dance Education from the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt. She expanded her classical dance background to more awareness-related work like Release Technique, Improvisation, and Yoga. The strength and value of her experience lies in diversity and multiple genres.

Analyzing our mind / body channel, we will ride the thin line between losing control and holding control. We will use different improvisational tasks and clear pathways to explore the endless possibilities our bodies can move through. We will push the limits of our physicality while finding comfort, attack and smoothness on the floor, standing, in mid space. We will reimagine how gravity can affect us. Technique will arise from our goal: to push our physical imagination while achieving clarity so our bodies can arrive in the most distorted places, and our minds can master them.

Lavinia Vago is from Italy and currently lives in Seattle. Performed with Sidra Bell Dance New York, Vim Vigor Dance Theater, Loni Landon Projects, Tom Weinberger, Saint Genet, RUBBERBANDance Group, and Kate Wallich/THE YC since 2010. Rehearsal director/choreographic assistant for Loni Landon, Kate Wallich, and Victor Quijada, recently at Staatstheater Mainz. NOESIS X, solo work with sound designer Harald Stojan. She teaches contemporary technique, improvisational investigative workshops, Dance Church™, the RUBBERBAND Method, and Dance for Parkinson’s.

  • 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.

Gustavo Gomes | The New Fascist

The new performance piece The New Fascist by Brazilian dancer Gustavo Gomes is inspired by the first forms of fascism under Benito Mussolini in northern Italy and also by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s feature film Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom. In it, the dancer embarks on an artistic examination of the past and its relation to current social issues. Who is privileged in our society? How do we encounter minorities? What’s the fear behind homophobia? How do we deal with oppression and threat? Why can religion be used as a justification for violence? How does power, admiration and followers arise? What remains of a culture after decades of colonial rule?
Inspired by the gestures and facial expressions of dictators, he shows strength, power, leadership, he aims, threatens, accuses and does not ignore what he is: a white man. A white man who spreads, oppresses, marks his territory and elevates his vision of right and wrong to the norm.

Music: Gustavo Gomes and Rosa Wernecke | Text: Josefine Sautier | Photos: Alexandre Borba | Duration: 15 min

Eri Funahashi Geen | 262 (working title)

“色即是空
空即是色”
(“Shiki soku ze kuu, kuu soku ze shiki” = “Form is emptiness, emptiness is form”)

The piece is inspired by the Japanese writing of the heart sutra, and seeks to express the 262 kanji (chinese characters) in the language of movement.
Geboren in Japan, aufgewachsen in Japan und Kanada, Eri Funahashi Geen ist heute als freischaffende Tänzerin, Choreografin und Tanzpädagogin in Frankfurt am Main ansässig. Sie studierte Ballett und zeitgenössischen Tanz an der Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance (UK). Sie war Mitglied im Teatrul de Balet Sibiu (Rumänien), wo sie in Repertoires von klassischen bis hin zu zeitgenössischen Werken tanzte. Im Jahr 2018 absolvierte sie den Masterstudiengang Contemporary Dance Education (MA CoDE) an der Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main. Derzeit unterrichtet sie regelmäßig Ballett und zeitgenössischen Tanz für verschiedene Zielgruppen in Frankfurt und Umgebung. Als Tänzerin ist sie am Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden engagiert.

Laura Brechmann | Bahr belá mà – Meer ohne Wasser

Die Performance Bahr belá mà – Meer ohne Wasser ist der Versuch des choreografierten Falls aus der Ordnung. In dem Versuch, ihren Taumel verstehen zu wollen, riskieren sich die drei Figuren. Hier wird die Welt zum instabilen Möglichkeitsraum.
Im allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch sprechen wir von „Wüste“, wenn das Gegenteil von Heimat, Geborgenheit und Sicherheit ausgedrückt werden soll. In der Wüste, im Serir, ist der Mensch Gefühlen von Verlassenheit, Orientierungslosigkeit und Einsamkeit ausgesetzt. Er taumelt, die Welt gerät aus ihrem Gleichgewicht. Wie lässt sich diese Wahrnehmung in eine Choreografie umsetzen? Die Performer*innen verlassen den selbstgesteckten Sicherheitsraum. Sie taumeln, aus Angst vor dem Unbekannten. Denn sie wissen nicht, was die Wüste bereithält, welche Gefahren, welche Geheimnisse sie ihnen offenbart. In dem Versuch, ihren Taumel verstehen zu wollen, riskieren sie, sich und ihre Welt zu verlieren. Der Fall aus der Balance, Desstabilität und Kontrollverlust sind jedoch nur die eine Seite der menschlichen Empfindungen. Im Taumel erfährt das Individuum auch ein unbeschreibliches Gefühl der Freiheit. Hier, in ihrem surrealen Bahr belá mà (dt. Meer ohne Wasser) gibt es keine Beschränkungen mehr. Die Welt wird zu dem eigenen Möglichkeitsraum. In der Bewegung (emp)findet man Freude und Spaß. Und plötzlich fragt man sich, wovor man sich eigentlich fürchtet.

Inszenierung und Performance: Laura Brechmann, Giulio Hesse, Marlene Ruther | Video und Bühnenbild: Anja Plonka | Kostümbild: Marlene Ruther | Outside Eye: Katarína Marková, Florent Golfier | Produktionsleitung: Anna-Lena Werner

  • Fri 12.04.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

Paul’s class is designed to warm, stretch, release and tone the whole body. Not based in any singular contemporary technique, although influenced by yoga, release technique, Kung Fu and floor work. The class focuses on grounding the body’s energy and power in dynamic movement. The exercises aim at articulating the spine as the instigator of movement and at working strongly the core to increase weight transfer ability out into the space. Opening up different sequential movement pathways to find power and grace. Continually working in and out of the floor seamlessly and efficiently. Physically demanding.

Australian born dance-artist Paul White has been living in Germany since 2011. Until 2017, he was employed by Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, as the first dancer to join the company after Bausch’s death. His twenty year long career history as a performer and artistic collaborator includes working with companies and directors; Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre), Tanja Liedtke, Nigel Jamieson and Garry Stewart (Australian Dance Theatre), Narelle Benjamin, Kristina Chan, Martin Del Amo, Danzahoy.
Paul is the Honorary Patron of Tanzrauschen Wuppertal, a dance-on-film society founded in Wuppertal, and is a founding member of the Free Arts Scene Society, Wuppertal Germany. He is the recipient of eight national and international awards for his performance and choreographic work. (Australian Dance Awards, Helpmann Awards, Tänzer des Jahres, UK Critics Circle Award)
In 2019, Paul is looking forward to choregraphic residencies in Limerick, Frankfurt and Chicago for various insitutions, and thrilled to have further presentation opportunities for the piece Cella, co-choreographed with long-term friend Narelle Benjamin.

Paul’s class is designed to warm, stretch, release and tone the whole body. Not based in any singular contemporary technique, although influenced by yoga, release technique, Kung Fu and floor work. The class focuses on grounding the body’s energy and power in dynamic movement. The exercises aim at articulating the spine as the instigator of movement and at working strongly the core to increase weight transfer ability out into the space. Opening up different sequential movement pathways to find power and grace. Continually working in and out of the floor seamlessly and efficiently. Physically demanding.

Australian born dance-artist Paul White has been living in Germany since 2011. Until 2017, he was employed by Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, as the first dancer to join the company after Bausch’s death. His twenty year long career history as a performer and artistic collaborator includes working with companies and directors; Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre), Tanja Liedtke, Nigel Jamieson and Garry Stewart (Australian Dance Theatre), Narelle Benjamin, Kristina Chan, Martin Del Amo, Danzahoy.
Paul is the Honorary Patron of Tanzrauschen Wuppertal, a dance-on-film society founded in Wuppertal, and is a founding member of the Free Arts Scene Society, Wuppertal Germany. He is the recipient of eight national and international awards for his performance and choreographic work. (Australian Dance Awards, Helpmann Awards, Tänzer des Jahres, UK Critics Circle Award)
In 2019, Paul is looking forward to choregraphic residencies in Limerick, Frankfurt and Chicago for various insitutions, and thrilled to have further presentation opportunities for the piece Cella, co-choreographed with long-term friend Narelle Benjamin.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Mon 08.04.2019 | 09:00 - 14:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

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

After a proper warm-up, the class challenges the dancers technically. Starting slow, with a respectful heating of the body and a kinesiologic basis it develops progressively into highly dynamic and structured patterns. Besides placement special attention is given to a proper release of the weight into the floor, alternation of balance and off-balance material, and a constant change of energy. The final part of the lesson includes the learning of a choreographic phrase as a means to develop interpretation skills as well as an individual expressivity of the dancer.

Improvising freely or on set material using theatrical imagery and text, with partners as well as sharing the creative process with the whole group, are some of the tools to explore new choreographic material. As the workshop develops and new movement is created, the focus will shift naturally to composition and possibly to the structuring of small pieces of choreography. The general aim is to stimulate self-confidence in the creative skills of the dancers.

Peter Mika was born in Michalovce, Slovakia, in 1972. He received his education at the University of Music and Dramatic Art in Bratislava. He has danced with Torzo Ballet in Bratislava, with Bruno Genty in Paris, and was a member of S.O.A.P. Dance Theatre Frankfurt for four years. Afterwards he joined the Robert Pool Dance Company in Essen. In 1999 he was a member of Rui Horta stage works in Munich. In 1998, he was awarded the prize of the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation at the 8th International Concours de Dance de Paris. In 2002, he and Olga Cobos – with whom he has been directing the CobosMika Company since 2002 – received the Tanzförderpreis of the City of Munich.

He regularly teaches at Iwanson dance school in Munich where he also restaged a piece (Mozart) by Rui Horta. He cooperates with Bratislava Dance theater as a guest teacher and, together with Olga Cobos, as a guest choreographer. He regularly holds dance workshops at several dance festivals, for example in Toulouse, Prague, Munich, Barcelona, Madrid or London.

For the TV station Arte he and Marcus Beherens made a documentary about the S.O.A.P. Dance Theatre, and a short film of the duo piece Duet. Lately, he worked for Russell Maliphant and performed solo and duet pieces together with Olga Cobos. During the last six years he has been performing in Europe, the USA, Canada and Russia, in theatres like Joyce Theater (New York), The Place (London), Royal Opera (London) or the Théâtre de la Ville (Paris).

The class begins with a simple warm-up focusing on the breathing, internal structure, weight and the body’s articulations. Directed exercises give the opportunity to each of the students to observe and experience their own particularity and range of mobility. As the class progresses we look to integrate the parts of the body and the use of the floor. Towards the end of the class a phrase will be provided to be used for individual explorations: to manipulate it, to follow it, to watch it, to re-interpret or to copy it. This class is the result of personal investigations and is influenced by many years of study of somatic technics and work with Jerem Nelson, Klein-Mahler Technique, Alexander Technique™, BodyMind-Centering® and the Feldenkrais Method.

Luis Lara Malvacías is a Venezuelan choreographer, dancer, dance teacher and multidisciplinary artist. He has danced in the work of Jeremy Nelson (1994 – 2004), David Zambrano, Mark Tompkins, John Jasperse, Yoshiko Chuma, and in his own choreography. He has presented his work in New York since 1994, including DTW, PS122, Danspace Project, the Kitchen and Joyce SoHo among others. In the United States he has taught, created and presented work in several colleges and institutions. Internationally, he regularly teaches and present work in many countries in Europe, South America, North America and Asia. He was a 1998/1999 and 2002/2003 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence and a 2006 Dance New Amsterdam Artist in Residence. He is the recipient of a 2006 NYFA Fellowship for choreography.

  • Tue 26.03.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

The class begins with a simple warm-up focusing on the breathing, internal structure, weight and the body’s articulations. Directed exercises give the opportunity to each of the students to observe and experience their own particularity and range of mobility. As the class progresses we look to integrate the parts of the body and the use of the floor. Towards the end of the class a phrase will be provided to be used for individual explorations: to manipulate it, to follow it, to watch it, to re-interpret or to copy it. This class is the result of personal investigations and is influenced by many years of study of somatic technics and work with Jerem Nelson, Klein-Mahler Technique, Alexander Technique™, BodyMind-Centering® and the Feldenkrais Method.

Luis Lara Malvacías is a Venezuelan choreographer, dancer, dance teacher and multidisciplinary artist.

This class is informed by different practices such as Tai-Chi, floor work, and releasing techniques. With a deep focus on spine mobilization, we work on finding movement ease while playing with a distinct use of movement qualities. We challenge our coordination and spatial orientation. Starting with a gentle but energetic warm-up, the class builds up towards complexity combining explorative and task-oriented exercises as well as movement sequences and combinations. The aim is to embrace a mindful physicality.

Release Ballet – The Joy of Movement
This class is a classical ballet class but using the principals of describing space and sensing motion that I learned while improvising for Forsythe for many years. The class is body friendly and allows us to learn some “tricks of the trade” to make our lines more clear and long. We also will be approaching things with speed, deriving from my Balanchine training. Like the title suggests I also look for ways that we can explore the joy of movement in a ballet class, incorporating the whole body and to be able to see that ballet is still dancing.

Antony Rizzi, an Italian American coming from Boston, was from 1985 to 2003 a principal dancer and artistic advisor to William Forsythe at the Ballett Frankfurt. He has been teaching Classical Ballet and Improvisation since 1987, first at The Boston Ballet and over the years at various companies like, Wuppertal Dancetheatre, Munich Ballet, La Scala Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Ballet Theatre Munich, Ballett Frankfurt and others. He has been creating works as well since 1984 for various companies like The Royal Ballet, The Boston Ballet, The Ballett Frankfurt and the Scapino Ballet. In addition he created works for his own company, MOVING PRODUCTIONS including “Snowman Sinking”, “Judy was angry”, “The Role I Should Have Done”, “1 2 3 you and me”, “Being Human Being” and most recently “Some of my best friends are trash”. Rizzi also works as an actor, with the Forsythe Company, Jan Fabre and most recently at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in the Opera THE FASHION directed by Michael Simon.

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

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

Gregory Livingston was born in Washington, Tacoma & grew up in NYC. He received his BFA from the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance. Upon graduation he went abroad to join the City Contemporary Dance Company in Hong Kong. He then made his way to Europe and Germany, where he’s been ever since performing for Roberto Galvan, Jean Renshaw, Ismael Ivo, Rui Horta, Iris Tenge, Joseph Tmim, and Claire Russ.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Fri 01.03.2019 | 11:00 - 13:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

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

The goal of the class is to train physicality and stamina by using principles of contemporary dance in order to generate an available body, open to access to one’s own movement identity.
Through the practice of different movement patterns across the space, executing phrases and training stamina, the class will prepare us to research choreographic principles like continuity, repetition, gravity, directionality, decision-making… with the aim of connecting each individual to their own way of composing dance in real time.

She has always been combining her career as an interpreter of dance with her interest in teaching.
She has collaborated with artists like William Forsythe, Los Ballets de Madrid, Thiasos or Pioré Danza. During the last two years she has been part of the teachers team at Professional Dance Academy in Castilla y León and MOVE arte para todos, where she keeps coordinating different projects.

Participants will be guided through an improvisations’ technique. This lab gives the dancers an understanding of their connection between mind and body in order to be in control of their own physical instrument and therefore continue growing creatively and technically. The workshop allows for a continuous flow of images, situations, feelings, rhythm and the tasks to embody those.
Ostheimer’s specific physicality is built on fast rhythmical changes of emotions and images. Her language is expressive, fluent, sensual and earthy. The unique animalistic movements that seem to arise from human instincts is her particular and peculiar signature in dance.

Living inside the instrument
This class aims to stimulate a continuous whole body movement awareness by applying some of the core principles from Cunningham Technique based on the unlimited potential of the body for temporal-spatial design.
During the week the class will evolve through complexity, playing all at once with Isolation patterns and Rhythm and Coordination of the limbs in the space through different combinations which will make use of sound and repetition differently. By allowing the participants to be continuously challenged to problem-solving, the dancing experience will result in an accurate sense of phrasing and mental strength which will reveal an ever-present quality.

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

Living inside the instrument
This class aims to stimulate a continuous whole body movement awareness by applying some of the core principles from Cunningham Technique based on the unlimited potential of the body for temporal-spatial design.
During the week the class will evolve through complexity, playing all at once with Isolation patterns and Rhythm and Coordination of the limbs in the space through different combinations which will make use of sound and repetition differently. By allowing the participants to be continuously challenged to problem-solving, the dancing experience will result in an accurate sense of phrasing and mental strength which will reveal an ever-present quality.

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007. Her previous dance experience includes New York City Ballet, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, Amanda Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and Saburo Teshigawara’s Karas Company. From 1996 to 2004 she was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt.

Gabrielle Staiger’s class was originally designed as preparation for creative processes and aims at activating the „democratic body“ (a body capable of initiating movement from every part or surface of the body). The class begins on the floor, focusing on the spine and then becomes increasingly complex and technically demanding. A technical, kinetic and literally moving experience.

Gabrielle Staiger, freelance choreographer and teacher for contemporary dance technique, composition and Labanprinciples is a teacher very much in demand with leading dance companies like Ballet Preljocaj/Aix-en-Provence, Neuer Tanz/Düsseldorf, Ultima Vez/Brussels, Ballet de Marseille as well as leading education centres in Europe and overseas such as the Hogeschool vor de Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Rotterdamse Dansakademie and SungKyunKwan University in Seoul. For 12 years she directed ARAZZO Tanztheater, a Physical Theatre Company based in Cologne. Her artistic work has won numerous awards. She was educated at the Laban Centre in London and the German College of Physical Education in Cologne.

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

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

Gregory Livingston was born in Washington, Tacoma & grew up in NYC. He received his BFA from the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance. Upon graduation he went abroad to join the City Contemporary Dance Company in Hong Kong. He then made his way to Europe and Germany, where he’s been ever since performing for Roberto Galvan, Jean Renshaw, Ismael Ivo, Rui Horta, Iris Tenge, Joseph Tmim, and Claire Russ.
Since 2001, Gregory has been dancing, teaching and choreographing nationally and internationally in conjunction with NY Institute of Dance & Education (NYIDE), The Korean National University of Arts (KNUA), Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), Akram Khan, Tanzplan Frankfurt / Germany, Iwanson School, Codarts-Rotterdam Dance Academy, Balettakademien Stockholm, Folkhögskola Härnösand, Dance Ireland, Opéra de Monte Carlo, Theater Erfurt, Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, as well as other theaters within Germany. Gregory is a guest artist with the Limon Company since 2011 and a graduate of the MA Contemporary Dance Education program at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HfMDK).

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

All participants are invited to a 30-minute feedback session, facilitated directly afterwards.

Monday (Nov. 26): The week starts with Humphrey/Limón and Release Techniques as different entry points to Levity, a concept of organizing the body away from the floor.

Tuesday (Nov. 27): Participants will explore Limitations and Possibilities, focusing on spatial orientation and dynamics from two practices: Jooss-Leeder Technique and Forsythe Improvisation Technologies.

Wednesday (Nov. 28): This class, Falling in Draining Spirals, is combining the technical aspects that are found in the practices of Doris Humphrey, José Limón and Jennifer Muller.

Thursday (Nov. 29): Struggles and Strategies of Deconstruction uses examples of Merce Cunningham’s spinal compositions and William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies.

Friday (Nov. 30): Acknowledging the diversity of knowledge found within the differing physical practices, the last day will shift perspectives towards Integration within one moving body.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Thu 29.11.2018 | 11:00 - 12:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

  • Mon 26.11.2018 | 11:00 - 13:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

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

Students of the Master‘s Program in Contemporary Dance Education teach the profi-training classes on alternating days. During the course of Wilde Woche, the students build on team and individual teaching to offer a range of modern and contemporary dance techniques, training and exploration.

Integration: One Body – Different Practices

Throughout the week, participants will encounter various dance practices. Each day will have a common structure: tuning in, intense physical activity, movement combination and a closure to integrate experiences. The morning training will be 90 minutes. All participants are invited to a 30-minute feedback session, facilitated directly afterwards.

Monday (Nov. 26): The week starts with Humphrey/Limón and Release Techniques as different entry points to Levity, a concept of organizing the body away from the floor.

Tuesday (Nov. 27): Participants will explore Limitations and Possibilities, focusing on spatial orientation and dynamics from two practices: Jooss-Leeder Technique and Forsythe Improvisation Technologies.

Wednesday (Nov. 28): This class, Falling in Draining Spirals, is combining the technical aspects that are found in the practices of Doris Humphrey, José Limón and Jennifer Muller.

Thursday (Nov. 29): Struggles and Strategies of Deconstruction uses examples of Merce Cunningham’s spinal compositions and William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies.

Friday (Nov. 30): Acknowledging the diversity of knowledge found within the differing physical practices, the last day will shift perspectives towards Integration within one moving body.

WORKSHOP "The Axis Syllabus" by Frey Faust

  • Sat 24.11.2018 | 00:00 - 00:00
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • € 190,- / reduced € 140,- | Early bird registration (up to 6 weeks before the workshop): € 170,- / reduced € 95,-

Sat, 24.11., 3 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Sun, 25.11., 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Frey Faust is a veteran of the New York contemporary dance scene. In the late 90’s he developed an interdisciplinary movement analysis system. “The Axis Syllabus” system designates different parts of the body as “motors” and explores their potential for energy creation. The AS recognizes both broad general commonalities as well as unique individual qualities and proportions, and invites the student to work with rather than against their body’s resources.
In his workshop, Frey Faust invites the participants to practice for example the kinetic energy transfer from one body part to the other, practice joint centration and dynamic alignment, explore various options for optimal articular motion and turn physics to their favour for both large and small scale movements. The workshop addresses participants who have already gained basic experience in dance and movement techniques.

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?

Premiere in the German-speaking area/No language skills required

This year, Meg Stuart receives the Biennale de Venezia’s Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
In her latest dance piece, which is as associative as it is emotional, the choreographer goes on a journey into the human psyche. In a space of innumerable lightbulbs, designed by the Indonesian artist Jompet Kuswidananto, three dancers reveal layers of memory that have never been heard before. To driving sounds by the experimental musicians Mieko Suzuki and Ikbal Simamora Lubys, bodies meet more with gestures than narrative action – to then separate again. Darkness and light, unconscious and conscious elements, East and West all appear to want to connect in a universe of humanity. This piece is a real trip. In one word: mesmerizing!

  • Staatstheater Darmstadt, Großes Haus, Georg-Büchner-Platz 1, 64283 Darmstadt
  • ab 12,50 Euro | erm. 11,75 Euro

Ohad Naharin is considered one of the most original and progressive dance creators of our time. In Sadeh21, he let dancers of the company he directs, the Batsheva Dance Company, meet and explore the spaces of interpersonal relationships. He not only received waves of enthusiasm from audiences throughout the world – he also captivated international dance critics. After its world premiere, the piece travelled from Tel Aviv to New York, from Hamburg to Perth in Australia – always danced by 18 dancers of the Batsheva Dance Company. For the premiere at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, the piece will be put on stage by a different company for the first time.

In 21 exciting fields ( הדש , sadeh, Hebrew: field), in 21 sections, Ohad Naharin shows the audience the entire expanse of relationships and meetings, of attraction, rejection and all human sentiments in between – in all possible combinations and constellations. Thus our dancers will enter into this pressure chamber of emotions to open the Hessian State Ballet’s season; here they will meet in a spirit of sensitivity and explosiveness – to then finally submit themselves to the overwhelming flood of danced images.

Length: 75 min.

  • 12 Euro | erm. 6 Euro

Taulant Shehu, a dancer from the Hessian State Ballet and up-and-coming choreographer, explores his Albanian roots in his new creation Dua. “Family and traditions are two important foundations for Albanian culture; there is hardly another time when they are more closely bound than at a wedding ceremony,” he says. In Dua, a wedding as the pinnacle of festiveness, happiness and the promise of remaining together forever becomes the point of departure to reflect on living together in general. Taulant Shehu directs his attention to the individual participants and choreographically explores their own stories, emotions and backgrounds.

The composer Arne Stevens provides music for this danced approach to tradition; it places the cultural origins of this work in a musical focus as well by working with traditional Albanian instruments.

  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

This class draws from experiences with release-based and traditional modern dance techniques, from the work with contact as well as Forsythe improvisation methods and yoga. Class will begin with a simple warm-up on the floor or with improv exercises focusing on establishing a feeling for the center and the basic connections of the moving body as well as an efficient use of weight and breath. Class will continue with exercises at increasingly higher intensity and with an emphasis on an ever larger range of motion, clear and efficient transitions and an appropriate use of dynamic changes. The class culminates with a longer movement sequence meant to give room to apply technical discoveries that may have been made throughout the class while at the same time allowing for personal experiences in regards to space, the connection to fellow dancers and/or to the pure pleasure of moving. Falling and failure are highly encouraged.

Ildikó Tóth studied dance in education at Rotterdam Dance Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating, a DAAD scholarship led her to New York City in 2005 where she worked with Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company, Susan Marshall & Company as well as Kota Yamazaki among others. Since November 2012 she is a member of the Forsythe Company. She has taught for the department of education at Nederlands Dans Theater among others, and has been assisting Bill Young with staging new work for students at Barnard College in New York City.

  • 12 Euro | erm. 6 Euro

Kristin Gerwien carries us off into an intermediate sphere. She is a musician, performer and costume designer all at once; she created a piece full of sculptural power and a fine sense of tonality that is neither concert nor performance. It is everything at once! The piece by this young artist plays with disassociation and alienation. Gerwien stages and multiplies herself as an artistic character. The cover of a chronicle of possible meetings is opened; it tells of human skin, loss, touch, excess and other chasms between reality and fiction – all accompanied by electronically influenced songs.

For much too long disabled bodies have mainly been used to represent Otherness. In his new work, choreographer and cultural activist Saša Asentić has assembled a team of people with and without disabilities, working together on equal footing to deal with aesthetic regimes of dance history. Three key works of the 20th century, which were created in Germany, but then revolutionized dance worldwide, serve as a starting point for the ensemble. The pieces Hexentanz by Mary Wigman, Kontakthof by Pina Bausch and Self Unfinished by Xavier Le Roy all represented completely unique bodily concepts at the time of their respective inception; they broke with existing convention and have all now become a part of the canon. Asentić and his team adopt this material with great empathy and expertise to develop a unique aesthetic and reclaim a place in dance history. Dis_Sylphide thus humorously and surprisingly overturns existing body norms and conventions and invites us to conquer the theatre as a place of alternative togetherness.

This class draws from experiences with release-based and traditional modern dance techniques, from the work with contact as well as Forsythe improvisation methods and yoga. Class will begin with a simple warm-up on the floor or with improv exercises focusing on establishing a feeling for the center and the basic connections of the moving body as well as an efficient use of weight and breath. Class will continue with exercises at increasingly higher intensity and with an emphasis on an ever larger range of motion, clear and efficient transitions and an appropriate use of dynamic changes. The class culminates with a longer movement sequence meant to give room to apply technical discoveries that may have been made throughout the class while at the same time allowing for personal experiences in regards to space, the connection to fellow dancers and/or to the pure pleasure of moving. Falling and failure are highly encouraged.

Ildikó Tóth studied dance in education at Rotterdam Dance Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating, a DAAD scholarship led her to New York City in 2005 where she worked with Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company, Susan Marshall & Company as well as Kota Yamazaki among others. Since November 2012 she is a member of the Forsythe Company. She has taught for the department of education at Nederlands Dans Theater among others, and has been assisting Bill Young with staging new work for students at Barnard College in New York City.

Kristin Gerwien carries us off into an intermediate sphere. She is a musician, performer and costume designer all at once; she created a piece full of sculptural power and a fine sense of tonality that is neither concert nor performance. It is everything at once! The piece by this young artist plays with disassociation and alienation. Gerwien stages and multiplies herself as an artistic character. The cover of a chronicle of possible meetings is opened; it tells of human skin, loss, touch, excess and other chasms between reality and fiction – all accompanied by electronically influenced songs.

For much too long disabled bodies have mainly been used to represent Otherness. In his new work, choreographer and cultural activist Saša Asentić has assembled a team of people with and without disabilities, working together on equal footing to deal with aesthetic regimes of dance history. Three key works of the 20th century, which were created in Germany, but then revolutionized dance worldwide, serve as a starting point for the ensemble. The pieces Hexentanz by Mary Wigman, Kontakthof by Pina Bausch and Self Unfinished by Xavier Le Roy all represented completely unique bodily concepts at the time of their respective inception; they broke with existing convention and have all now become a part of the canon. Asentić and his team adopt this material with great empathy and expertise to develop a unique aesthetic and reclaim a place in dance history. Dis_Sylphide thus humorously and surprisingly overturns existing body norms and conventions and invites us to conquer the theatre as a place of alternative togetherness.

Taulant Shehu, a dancer from the Hessian State Ballet and up-and-coming choreographer, explores his Albanian roots in his new creation Dua. “Family and traditions are two important foundations for Albanian culture; there is hardly another time when they are more closely bound than at a wedding ceremony,” he says. In Dua, a wedding as the pinnacle of festiveness, happiness and the promise of remaining together forever becomes the point of departure to reflect on living together in general. Taulant Shehu directs his attention to the individual participants and choreographically explores their own stories, emotions and backgrounds.

The composer Arne Stevens provides music for this danced approach to tradition; it places the cultural origins of this work in a musical focus as well by working with traditional Albanian instruments.

A dance piece for adolescents and their fans | Age ten and over

Growing up is simultaneously a time of rebellion and fitting in. In his new ballet piece, Tim Plegge makes the moments visible in which restructuring life and defining your own personality are placed in the foreground. It shows situations that young adults experience with their peers: friendship, exclusion, group dynamics, self-confidence, sexuality and love. Just like at a building site, everything in this highly exciting phase of life is “under construction”. Important questions need time to mature – who am I? Who would I like to be? Maybe there is a little place where we don’t have to do what girls or boys are generally expected to do? The crisis of growing up wears the most colorful clothes!

The Tanzplattform Rhein-Main continously supports choreographers in developing their pieces. Regardless of whether these are first ideas, rough sketches or already polished dramaturgies: all phases of a creation process are precious. The choreographic workshop offers space for these developmental phases. IN the context of the Tanzfestival Rhein-Main, three dancemakers or ensembles from the region are invited to present projects that are presently in production. In a post-workshop discussion, impressions can be shared, and one can imagine how the works might come to develop.

With showings by Kihako Narisawa, Cyril Baldy, Carolina Mendonça, Catalina Insignares, Ida Daniel, Rodrigo Andreolli und Zuzana Zabkova.

In her performance project “Figurative”, Kihako Narisawa examines the unequal relationship between ideas and words, language and artistic expression. “I often experience a gap between my ability to communicate verbally and my preference to express myself without words, through movement”. Narisawa is working on a system that uses these contradictions as a productive energy and generates new levels of communication.

Cyril Baldy works in and out of the form of dance. In the Choreographic Workshop he presents his research for a solo series. On the basis of a clearly defined choreographic score, he invites various dancers to generate new movement processes using their physical and dance history.

To expand the basic understanding of choreography, to understand the body as a place of knowledge production, and this especially with regard to knowledge devalued by Western epistemology – these are central concerns in the collaborations of Carolina Mendonça, Catalina Insignares, Ida Daniel, Rodrigo Andreolli and Zuzana Zabkova. With their new production “Pulp”, from which they will show excerpts in the Choreographic Workshop, they construct an intuitive archaeology from the remains of 400-year-old, broken references and explore five bodies in monstrous transformation that support each other with slippery and sticky hands.

How can you find your way in a world of “grown-ups”– if everything that happens there seems to be too colorful, too big and too interesting somehow? What needs to be discovered?
After the great success of her work Farbenspiele in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt, the Lithuanian choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė will return to the Hessian State Ballet. In Labyrinth, children between three and six years of age are invited to experience what it means to playfully conquer the world that they live in on a daily basis.

Starting with objects from children’s daily life, she creates a maze together with two dancers: it is colorful and thoughtful, confusing and then suddenly fantastically simple. They find their way out, and it then becomes a big playground for everyone.

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. As part of Tanzfestival Rhein-Main, Hessisches Staatsballett wants to revive this tradition anew. Bringing back memories that dance is not only something nice to look at, but can also be experiences by all, Tanztees will be hosted in both Darmstadt and Wiesbaden for everyone who wishes to enjoy a little dance themselves.

Where lies the difference that we feel – and how do we feel together? Together with the dancers Su-Mi Jang and Katja Cheraneva, the visual artist and director Ayla Pierrot Arendt creates with Harmless Being a fluid world in which alternative forms of togetherness are negotiated. She further develops the genre of video choreography – her suggestion – and uses influences from the Japanese lowbudget film genre “pinku eiga” in the borderline between video work and live performance. Arendt re-interprets these “erotic films”. She places the female protagonists at the centre of attention and extracts an unusual approach to feelings and relationships from their behaviour.
The piece thus develops a dynamic space between projection, audience and dance in which everyone becomes compassionate and thus can comprehend the characters.

Ohad Naharin is considered one of the most original and progressive dance creators of our time. In Sadeh21, he let dancers of the company he directs, the Batsheva Dance Company, meet and explore the spaces of interpersonal relationships. He not only received waves of enthusiasm from audiences throughout the world – he also captivated international dance critics. After its world premiere, the piece travelled from Tel Aviv to New York, from Hamburg to Perth in Australia – always danced by 18 dancers of the Batsheva Dance Company. For the premiere at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, the piece will be put on stage by a different company for the first time.

In 21 exciting fields ( הדש , sadeh, Hebrew: field), in 21 sections, Ohad Naharin shows the audience the entire expanse of relationships and meetings, of attraction, rejection and all human sentiments in between – in all possible combinations and constellations. Thus our dancers will enter into this pressure chamber of emotions to open the Hessian State Ballet’s season; here they will meet in a spirit of sensitivity and explosiveness – to then finally submit themselves to the overwhelming flood of danced images.

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007. Her previous dance experience includes New York City Ballet, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, Amanda Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and Saburo Teshigawara’s Karas Company. From 1996 to 2004 she was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt.

  • ab 5 Euro | erm. ab 3 Euro

How can you find your way in a world of “grown-ups”– if everything that happens there seems to be too colorful, too big and too interesting somehow? What needs to be discovered?
After the great success of her work Farbenspiele in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt, the Lithuanian choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė will return to the Hessian State Ballet. In Labyrinth, children between three and six years of age are invited to experience what it means to playfully conquer the world that they live in on a daily basis.

Starting with objects from children’s daily life, she creates a maze together with two dancers: it is colorful and thoughtful, confusing and then suddenly fantastically simple. They find their way out, and it then becomes a big playground for everyone.

Length: 40 min.

Nov, 9 | Subsequent Artist Talk

Where lies the difference that we feel – and how do we feel together? Together with the dancers Su-Mi Jang and Katja Cheraneva, the visual artist and director Ayla Pierrot Arendt creates with Harmless Being a fluid world in which alternative forms of togetherness are negotiated. She further develops the genre of video choreography – her suggestion – and uses influences from the Japanese lowbudget film genre “pinku eiga” in the borderline between video work and live performance. Arendt re-interprets these “erotic films”. She places the female protagonists at the centre of attention and extracts an unusual approach to feelings and relationships from their behaviour.
The piece thus develops a dynamic space between projection, audience and dance in which everyone becomes compassionate and thus can comprehend the characters.

Length: 90 min.

The great musicality of Emanuel Gat’s works is truly captivating. At the last festival, his interpretation of Bobby Hebb’s hit Sunny enthused audiences. Now he returns to Frankfurt for another extraordinary project. By invitation of the Ensemble Modern, he developed a very special work at the Frankfurt LAB, bringing fifteen musicians and ten members of his dance company on stage in a piece, which premiered at the Festival d’Avignon at Cours d’honneur du Palais de Pape. The concept is unusual. One part of the choreography is being developed on the basis of finished scores: Dérive 2 by Pierre Boulez and Rebecca Saunders’ Fury II. For the third part FolkDance dancers and musicians create a musical-choreographic full score together, in which the gestures of sound generation and of dance merge – elegantly overstepping and dissolving established boundaries and responsibilities.

How can you find your way in a world of “grown-ups”– if everything that happens there seems to be too colorful, too big and too interesting somehow? What needs to be discovered?
After the great success of her work Farbenspiele in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt, the Lithuanian choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė will return to the Hessian State Ballet. In Labyrinth, children between three and six years of age are invited to experience what it means to playfully conquer the world that they live in on a daily basis.

Starting with objects from children’s daily life, she creates a maze together with two dancers: it is colorful and thoughtful, confusing and then suddenly fantastically simple. They find their way out, and it then becomes a big playground for everyone.

Length: 40 min.

How do the likes you get online affect your behaviour and body image?
Blurring the lines between dance and lecture, real life and online reality, Likes explores the phenomena of dance covers and yoga tutorials on social networks. Half tutorial instructor and half anthropological researcher, Núria Guiu Sagarra takes us on a physical journey with a pinch of irony.
In Likes the Barcelona-based dancer, performer, and choreographer, who amongst others worked with renowned dance companies such as IT Danza, Carte Blanche and the Batsheva Dance Company, offers a fresh look at the presence of the body in the digital age.

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.

How do we look at each other? How do we allow ourselves to be seen? How do our bodies shape the ways we perceive the world around us? Can we change how we see others?
The Way You Look (at me) Tonight is a social sculpture – a sensory journey, for two performers and audience. Dancing, singing, telling stories and asking questions, leading UK disabled artist Claire Cunningham and international choreographer and performer Jess Curtis, combine performance, original music, and video to wrestle (sometimes literally) with important questions about our habits and practices of perceiving each other and the world.
In collaboration with noted author and philosopher of perception Alva Noë, video artist Yoann Trellu, composer Matthias Herrmann, and dramaturge Luke Pell, they perform an evening-length duet that excavates their own ways of seeing each other – as a man and a woman of different ages, bodies and backgrounds.

In Cuculand Souvenir, the spectacularity of circus and highly virtuous dance merges with visual arts into a large-scale performance. Catalan contemporary dance maker Roberto Olivan bets on the risky nature of an innovative language to explore the impact of technological evolution in our daily life. Seven performers show intertwined stories linked to technology and exploring the fine line between appropriation and addiction that shapes our daily experience of technological progress today.

For this latest creation Olivan cosigns his work with the sound of electroacoustic music sculptor Laurent Delforge and Romain Tardy, one of the most important visual artists of the current digital scene.

What happens when the desires hidden in the dark corners of your mind are suddenly brought to light? What if they have been the driving force of your choices all this while? Inspired by the work of Sigmund Freud, Whist invites you on a journey into the unconscious mind, where your instincts will guide you through a narrative of surreal dreams and fears.
AΦE, a Ashford-based dance company, specialized in bringing the art of dance closer to its audiences, presents their first major work: being a fully immersive, virtual reality experience Whist merges Physical Theatre and Mixed Reality Technology, in an environment that blurs the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness, reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual. Through art and sound installation coupled with cinematic and interactive 360° film, you will be immersed in a world of unfolding dreams. Who knows where your subconscious will lead you?

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. As part of Tanzfestival Rhein-Main, Hessisches Staatsballett wants to revive this tradition anew. Bringing back memories that dance is not only something nice to look at, but can also be experiences by all, Tanztees will be hosted in both Darmstadt and Wiesbaden for everyone who wishes to enjoy a little dance themselves.

How do we perceive music? What can one do with music? The two-part evening Opus / Näss combines two fundamentally different approaches to music and how dance can work with it. The Greek choreographer Christos Papadopoulos allows music to become an integral element of the performance: the borders between dancers’ bodies and music instruments meld; music and movement are inextricably joined. Thus Opus, a meditation on musical progressions, opens up a completely new perspective on our own automatic behaviour patterns that come into force once the music starts.
Näss, created by the French-Moroccan choreographer Fouad Boussouf, is also energized by music and an all-determining rhythm. Based on traditional movement sequences in Moroccan dance culture and in hip-hop, Boussouf lets traditions and modernity clash in the movements of his seven dancers; thus transporting the audience into the streets of Morocco.

Ohad Naharin is considered one of the most original and progressive dance creators of our time. In Sadeh21, he let dancers of the company he directs, the Batsheva Dance Company, meet and explore the spaces of interpersonal relationships. He not only received waves of enthusiasm from audiences throughout the world – he also captivated international dance critics. After its world premiere, the piece travelled from Tel Aviv to New York, from Hamburg to Perth in Australia – always danced by 18 dancers of the Batsheva Dance Company. For the premiere at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, the piece will be put on stage by a different company for the first time.

In 21 exciting fields ( הדש , sadeh, Hebrew: field), in 21 sections, Ohad Naharin shows the audience the entire expanse of relationships and meetings, of attraction, rejection and all human sentiments in between – in all possible combinations and constellations. Thus our dancers will enter into this pressure chamber of emotions to open the Hessian State Ballet’s season; here they will meet in a spirit of sensitivity and explosiveness – to then finally submit themselves to the overwhelming flood of danced images.

The Kinesthetic Resonance

Let’s arrive into a kinesthetic state: a state where movement choices follow sensorial feedback. Bringing together skills from improvisation with movement sequences, these classes are geared towards the professional dancer who is concerned with a detailed and haptic (felt) relationship to movement, over shape or form. We will work towards mapping kinesthetics through sensory expansion. We will challenge the agility and reflexes of our partners. We will create explosions and listen to them resonate. And we might do some movement phrases in a curious way.

Laura Hicks (1979) is a dancer, choreographer, and movement educator. She trained in Canada at the Toronto Ballet Ensemble, the Alberta Ballet, and the University of Calgary (UofC). Over the last ten years her work has focused substantially on improvisation and Somatics. Her study of anatomy in the department of Kinesiology at UofC, Bartineff Fundamentals, Franklin Technique, contact improvisation, biomechanics, and philosophy are strong influences. She is a teacher in demand at contact improvisation festivals throughout Europe, is involved in a three year project in Paris in the study of ‘intersubjectivity’ in joint improvisation (Project ICI), and was awarded the HTA Postgraduate Alumni Research Grant for her own project in ‘Kinesthetic Mapping’ in 2016. As a choreographer she works with Hannah Shakti Bühler. She is a fully certified trainer of the Pilates Method, and holds an MA in Contemporary Dance Education from the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.

LABYRINTH | Birutė Banevičiūtė

  • Fri 02.11.2018 | 10:00
  • Staatstheater Darmstadt, Kammerspiele, Georg-Büchner-Platz 1, 64283 Darmstadt
  • 5 Euro | erm. 3 Euro

How can you find your way in a world of “grown-ups”– if everything that happens there seems to be too colorful, too big and too interesting somehow? What needs to be discovered?
After the great success of her work Farbenspiele in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt, the Lithuanian choreographer Birutė Banevičiūtė will return to the Hessian State Ballet. In Labyrinth, children between three and six years of age are invited to experience what it means to playfully conquer the world that they live in on a daily basis.

Starting with objects from children’s daily life, she creates a maze together with two dancers: it is colorful and thoughtful, confusing and then suddenly fantastically simple. They find their way out, and it then becomes a big playground for everyone.

Length: 40 min.

Idea, Concept, Choreography: Birutė Banevičiūtė
Dance: Kirill Berezovski, Vincenzo Rosario Minervini

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007. Her previous dance experience includes New York City Ballet, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, Amanda Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and Saburo Teshigawara’s Karas Company. From 1996 to 2004 she was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt.

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

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

Gregory Livingston was born in Washington, Tacoma & grew up in NYC. He received his BFA from the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance. Upon graduation he went abroad to join the City Contemporary Dance Company in Hong Kong. He then made his way to Europe and Germany, where he’s been ever since performing for Roberto Galvan, Jean Renshaw, Ismael Ivo, Rui Horta, Iris Tenge, Joseph Tmim, and Claire Russ.
Since 2001, Gregory has been dancing, teaching and choreographing nationally and internationally in conjunction with NY Institute of Dance & Education (NYIDE), The Korean National University of Arts (KNUA), Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), Akram Khan, Tanzplan Frankfurt / Germany, Iwanson School, Codarts-Rotterdam Dance Academy, Balettakademien Stockholm, Folkhögskola Härnösand, Dance Ireland, Opéra de Monte Carlo, Theater Erfurt, Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, as well as other theaters within Germany. Gregory is a guest artist with the Limon Company since 2011 and a graduate of the MA Contemporary Dance Education program at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HfMDK).

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.

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.

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.

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007. Her previous dance experience includes New York City Ballet, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, Amanda Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and Saburo Teshigawara’s Karas Company. From 1996 to 2004 she was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt.

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Fri 21.09.2018 | 14:00 - 15:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

PREMIERE: June 9, 2018 | Römerberg, Frankfurt

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

Borrowing from Circular Breathing, Mediation, Sufi, Gaga and Release Technique, this training is a carefully guided movement practice with much improvisation. Beginning from meditative positions, we continue with vibrations and shakes, collapsing in and out of the floor, extending our range of movement and dynamics and reaching ecstatic physical states which connect us to the pleasure of dancing. One benefits from increased sensorial awareness, improvement of improvisation and motor skills and more.

Asher Lev is a dancer and choreographer whose works have toured in festivals in Europe, Israel, Canada and the U.S. He danced for Batsheva in Tel-Aviv, Carte Blanche in Norway and in many projects across Europe. He has an M.A. in Choreography from the Amsterdam University of the Arts.

Gabrielle Staiger’s class was originally designed as preparation for creative processes and aims at activating the „democratic body“ (a body capable of initiating movement from every part or surface of the body). The class begins on the floor, focusing on the spine and then becomes increasingly complex and technically demanding. A technical, kinetic and literally moving experience.

Gabrielle Staiger, freelance choreographer and teacher for contemporary dance technique, composition and Labanprinciples is a teacher very much in demand with leading dance companies like Ballet Preljocaj/Aix-en-Provence, Neuer Tanz/Düsseldorf, Ultima Vez/Brussels, Ballet de Marseille as well as leading education centres in Europe and overseas such as the Hogeschool vor de Kunsten in Amsterdam, the Rotterdamse Dansakademie and SungKyunKwan University in Seoul. For 12 years she directed ARAZZO Tanztheater, a Physical Theatre Company based in Cologne. Her artistic work has won numerous awards. She was educated at the Laban Centre in London and the German College of Physical Education in Cologne.

Release Ballet – The Joy of Movement
This class is a classical ballet class but using the principals of describing space and sensing motion that I learned while improvising for Forsythe for many years. The class is body friendly and allows us to learn some “tricks of the trade” to make our lines more clear and long. We also will be approaching things with speed, deriving from my Balanchine training. Like the title suggests I also look for ways that we can explore the joy of movement in a ballet class, incorporating the whole body and to be able to see that ballet is still dancing.

Antony Rizzi, an Italian American coming from Boston, was from 1985 to 2003 a principal dancer and artistic advisor to William Forsythe at the Ballett Frankfurt. He has been teaching Classical Ballet and Improvisation since 1987, first at The Boston Ballet and over the years at various companies like, Wuppertal Dancetheatre, Munich Ballet, La Scala Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Ballet Theatre Munich, Ballett Frankfurt and others. He has been creating works as well since 1984 for various companies like The Royal Ballet, The Boston Ballet, The Ballett Frankfurt and the Scapino Ballet. In addition he created works for his own company, MOVING PRODUCTIONS including “Snowman Sinking”, “Judy was angry”, “The Role I Should Have Done”, “1 2 3 you and me”, “Being Human Being” and most recently “Some of my best friends are trash”. Rizzi also works as an actor, with the Forsythe Company, Jan Fabre and most recently at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in the Opera THE FASHION directed by Michael Simon.

Es ist wieder so weit! Für vier Tage beziehen wie jedes Jahr Studierende des Masterstudiengangs „Choreographie und Performance“ des Instituts für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft in Gießen den Mousonturm. Mit ihrem Festival stellen sie gängige Regeln auf den Kopf. Kuratieren, Inszenieren, Performen gehen fließend ineinander über und alles wird zum Gegenstand choreografischer Auseinandersetzung. Ökonomische Strukturen, politischer Aktivismus, die Rhythmen des Alltags, Grenzen zwischen Gewalt und Vertrauen, post-ironische Narrative und vieles mehr erobern die Bühnen, Foyers und Gänge des Mousonturms. „Rough Proposals“ präsentiert Skizzen und fertige Performances, eröffnet künstlerische Denkräume und lädt zu Experimenten ein.

„I wanna be anarchy“ – mit diesem Satz leitete der Sänger der Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten vor über vierzig Jahren eine neue Ära ein. Der Punkrock war geboren. Punk war nicht nur Musik, sondern eine Lebensweise. Er lehnte aus einer nihilistischen Haltung heraus den Status quo, die Konsumgesellschaft mit ihren Werten und ihrer Ästhetik ab und betonte stattdessen das Unvollkommene und Rohe. Was ist von Punk geblieben, dieser subkulturellen Bewegung, deren Bildsprache zunehmend Einzug in die Modewelt und den Mainstream gehalten hat? Paula Rosolen, die sich für randständige Themen im Tanz interessiert, begibt sich in ihrem neuen Stück auf Spurensuche. Sie kehrt zu den Ursprüngen des Punk zurück und extrahiert seine besondere Körperlichkeit, seine Bewegungsqualitäten. Wie in ihren vorherigen Produktionen schafft sie dabei unerwartete Verbindungen und schließt die Punk-Bewegungen mit zeitgleichen Entwicklungen im Postmodern Dance kurz.

Paula Rosolen, die sich für randständige Themen im Tanz interessiert, begibt sich in ihrem neuen Stück auf Spurensuche. Sie kehrt zu den Ursprüngen des Punk zurück und extrahiert seine besondere Körperlichkeit, seine Bewegungsqualitäten. Wie in ihren vorherigen Produktionen schafft sie dabei unerwartete Verbindungen und schließt die Punk-Bewegungen mit zeitgleichen Entwicklungen im Postmodern Dance kurz.

Professional Training with Ildikó Tóth

  • Fri 29.06.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

This class draws from experiences with release-based and traditional modern dance techniques, from the work with contact as well as Forsythe improvisation methods and yoga. Class will begin with a simple warm-up on the floor or with improv exercises focusing on establishing a feeling for the center and the basic connections of the moving body as well as an efficient use of weight and breath. Class will continue with exercises at increasingly higher intensity and with an emphasis on an ever larger range of motion, clear and efficient transitions and an appropriate use of dynamic changes. The class culminates with a longer movement sequence meant to give room to apply technical discoveries that may have been made throughout the class while at the same time allowing for personal experiences in regards to space, the connection to fellow dancers and/or to the pure pleasure of moving. Falling and failure are highly encouraged.

Ildikó Tóth studied dance in education at Rotterdam Dance Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating, a DAAD scholarship led her to New York City in 2005 where she worked with Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company, Susan Marshall & Company as well as Kota Yamazaki among others. Since November 2012 she is a member of the Forsythe Company. She has taught for the department of education at Nederlands Dans Theater among others, and has been assisting Bill Young with staging new work for students at Barnard College in New York City.

Es ist wieder so weit! Für vier Tage beziehen wie jedes Jahr Studierende des Masterstudiengangs „Choreographie und Performance“ des Instituts für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft in Gießen den Mousonturm. Mit ihrem Festival stellen sie gängige Regeln auf den Kopf. Kuratieren, Inszenieren, Performen gehen fließend ineinander über und alles wird zum Gegenstand choreografischer Auseinandersetzung. Ökonomische Strukturen, politischer Aktivismus, die Rhythmen des Alltags, Grenzen zwischen Gewalt und Vertrauen, post-ironische Narrative und vieles mehr erobern die Bühnen, Foyers und Gänge des Mousonturms. „Rough Proposals“ präsentiert Skizzen und fertige Performances, eröffnet künstlerische Denkräume und lädt zu Experimenten ein.

„I wanna be anarchy“ – mit diesem Satz leitete der Sänger der Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten vor über vierzig Jahren eine neue Ära ein. Der Punkrock war geboren. Punk war nicht nur Musik, sondern eine Lebensweise. Er lehnte aus einer nihilistischen Haltung heraus den Status quo, die Konsumgesellschaft mit ihren Werten und ihrer Ästhetik ab und betonte stattdessen das Unvollkommene und Rohe. Was ist von Punk geblieben, dieser subkulturellen Bewegung, deren Bildsprache zunehmend Einzug in die Modewelt und den Mainstream gehalten hat? Paula Rosolen, die sich für randständige Themen im Tanz interessiert, begibt sich in ihrem neuen Stück auf Spurensuche. Sie kehrt zu den Ursprüngen des Punk zurück und extrahiert seine besondere Körperlichkeit, seine Bewegungsqualitäten.

After the show: the stage is empty where moments before something was happening. Together with the audience, Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt enter the venue again and search for remnants. During their seven-month outreach residency, the performance duo created space for taking joy in non-understanding and non-knowledge. After select performances, they invite the audience to test perception and personal strategies of comprehension. In June, the Vermittlungsmaschine (Outreach Machine) strikes twice with an attempt to locate the audience’s “Löxsi” with choreographic formations and with a tour of the stage area, shifting the focus on the sideshows of the performance.
*Löxsi: The feeling about a piece which one has just seen before one talks about it with others.

  • 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.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Sun 17.06.2018 | 15:00 - 16:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

PREMIERE: June 9, 2018 | Römerberg, Frankfurt

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?

  • 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?

Janna Pinsker und Wicki Bernhardt: The Outreach Machine Strikes Again III

  • Sun 10.06.2018 | 21:30 - 22:00
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main

After the show: the stage is empty where moments before something was happening. Together with the audience, Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt enter the venue again and search for remnants. During their seven-month outreach residency, the performance duo created space for taking joy in non-understanding and non-knowledge. After select performances, they invite the audience to test perception and personal strategies of comprehension. In June, the Vermittlungsmaschine (Outreach Machine) strikes twice with an attempt to locate the audience’s “Löxsi” with choreographic formations and with a tour of the stage area, shifting the focus on the sideshows of the performance.
*Löxsi: The feeling about a piece which one has just seen before one talks about it with others.

LIGNA: Klasse Kinder!

  • Sat 09.06.2018 | 16:00 - 17:00
  • Römerberg

Get to play air guitar right on Frankfurt’s Römerberg and be part of a dancing gang just for once? The performance collective LIGNA invites kids between age six and twelve to participate in an extraordinary piece. Equipped with headphones, which feature an audio play that mixes stories and movement instructions, they conquer Frankfurt’s central square through dance as they test the ways in which a random motley crew moves without a leader. Inspiration for the piece comes from the 1966-deceased choreographer Jenny Gertz, an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and visionary in the field of working with children. In “Klasse Kinder!”, LIGNA gives Gertz a voice and reawakens her revolutionary ideas to life together with the children.
The piece “Klasse Kinder!” is the third Ensemble Mobil. Once a year, the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main invites dance makers to develop a piece that leaves the theatre space.

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007.

This class aims to stimulate a continuous whole body movement awareness by applying some of the core principles from Cunningham Technique based on the unlimited potential of the body for temporal-spatial design.
During the week the class will evolve through complexity, playing all at once with Isolation patterns and Rhythm and Coordination of the limbs in the space through different combinations which will make use of sound and repetition differently. By allowing the participants to be continuously challenged to problem-solving, the dancing experience will result in an accurate sense of phrasing and mental strength which will reveal an ever-present quality.

VERÓNICA GARZÓN was trained in Classical Ballet, Modern Jazz, Modern Dance, Contemporary Dance, Releasing Techniques, Contact-Improvisation, and Butoh. Graduated in both Spanish Dance and Performance and Choreography of Contemporary Dance in Madrid, she holds a MA in Contemporary Dance Education by the University of Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt. As a choreographer she has presented her work in several venues through her Dance Company project BQ-MR, working as well as a dancer for Jean-Philippe Dury, Muriel Romero & Pablo Palacio, Hicks&Bühler, Larumbe Danza and Christoph Marthaler. As Dance Educator, she works for diverse Dance Programs in Dance Conservatories and Universities in Spain, Finland, Germany, and Switzerland.

During the week the class will evolve through complexity, playing all at once with Isolation patterns and Rhythm and Coordination of the limbs in the space through different combinations which will make use of sound and repetition differently. By allowing the participants to be continuously challenged to problem-solving, the dancing experience will result in an accurate sense of phrasing and mental strength which will reveal an ever-present quality.

VERÓNICA GARZÓN was trained in Classical Ballet, Modern Jazz, Modern Dance, Contemporary Dance, Releasing Techniques, Contact-Improvisation, and Butoh. Graduated in both Spanish Dance and Performance and Choreography of Contemporary Dance in Madrid, she holds a MA in Contemporary Dance Education by the University of Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt. As a choreographer she has presented her work in several venues through her Dance Company project BQ-MR, working as well as a dancer for Jean-Philippe Dury, Muriel Romero & Pablo Palacio, Hicks&Bühler, Larumbe Danza and Christoph Marthaler.

A piece surfaces. And disappears. And with it, the audience. Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt search for the remnants. During their seven-month outreach residency, the performance duo created space for taking joy in non-understanding and non-knowledge. Together with the audience, they develop research tasks before and after select performances, which test perception and personal strategies of comprehension. After an intense scrabble series in March the Vermittlungsmaschine (Outreach Machine) strikes again in May, this time with speculations on what remains after the performance and conversations with objects and scenes from the pieces.

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

Kasia’s class is experimenting with diverse movement qualities, combining technique and different dynamics with personal interpretation and sensitivity. The class consists of phrases built upon spatial orientation, movement complexity and coordination, allowing space for individual movement exploration. This practice aims to establish energetic patterns and interconnectedness of the body parts. Being a result of personal investigation, this training is influenced by improvisation and classical training.

Katarzyna Kizior – dancer, teacher and choreographer born in Poland. She studied ballet and folk dance at the National Ballet School. Since 2006 she has been working with Swirls Dance Company and The Opera House in Warsaw, Polin- Museum and with The Dramatic Theater in Warsaw. Apart from dance experience, she choreographs for TV formats such as So you think you can dance Poland, films and commercials. In 2015 she obtained a master’s degree in Contemporary Dance Education from the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt. She expanded her classical dance background to more awareness-related work like Release Technique, Improvisation, and Yoga. The strength and value of her experience lies in diversity and multiple genres.

Almost 500 years ago, in summer 1518, Europe was struck for the first time by a strange disease. With no prior warning, first individuals, then entire masses were overcome by an excessive dance craze. Cities, villages and entire regions were subsequently taken by surprise. Driven by her fascination for this phenomenon, choreographer and dancer Lea Martini – reputed throughout the German dance scene as an expert for physically extreme situations, is hosting a series of choreomanic outbreaks with “Tanzplage Frankfurt” (Dance Plague Frankfurt). The dance plague begins with a solo by the host. Then, after an incubation period, a concert leads to an massive outbreak.

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

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

Things break away from their inscribed biographies. Music separates itself from the musical world map attributed to it. Bodies and thoughts are set in motion in a kaleidoscopic space. In their dance, the choreographer and dancer Tümay Kılınçel and the transdisciplinary artist Nuray Demir operate with material and immaterial things that have specific meaning for different communities in Germany. On the stage, a space of memory and reference filled with objects like carpets, cloths, tulips and goddesses, materials, song and theremin music coalesce into new, irritating interpretations via loops and remixing. “و WOW” is an exciting exclamation, an invitation to join choreographies of transformation, to question narratives of migration and to rewrite herstories.

ALL in for ages 14+!

The Kinesthetic Resonance

Let’s arrive into a kinesthetic state: a state where movement choices follow sensorial feedback. Bringing together skills from improvisation with movement sequences, these classes are geared towards the professional dancer who is concerned with a detailed and haptic (felt) relationship to movement, over shape or form. We will work towards mapping kinesthetics through sensory expansion. We will challenge the agility and reflexes of our partners. We will create explosions and listen to them resonate. And we might do some movement phrases in a curious way.

Laura Hicks (1979) is a dancer, choreographer, and movement educator. She trained in Canada at the Toronto Ballet Ensemble, the Alberta Ballet, and the University of Calgary (UofC). Over the last ten years her work has focused substantially on improvisation and Somatics. Her study of anatomy in the department of Kinesiology at UofC, Bartineff Fundamentals, Franklin Technique, contact improvisation, biomechanics, and philosophy are strong influences. She is a teacher in demand at contact improvisation festivals throughout Europe, is involved in a three year project in Paris in the study of ‘intersubjectivity’ in joint improvisation (Project ICI), and was awarded the HTA Postgraduate Alumni Research Grant for her own project in ‘Kinesthetic Mapping’ in 2016. As a choreographer she works with Hannah Shakti Bühler. She is a fully certified trainer of the Pilates Method, and holds an MA in Contemporary Dance Education from the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.

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

Apart from almost always being there – to rest upon, to balance, to push from, to gain speed, the floor is one of our first and lifelong teachers. Inviting us to feel ourselves through the feedback it offers to our structure, we will throughout the week find ways to listen to the proposed invitation and find different relationships to how and when.

Allison Brown, living in Frankfurt, Germany, has been making her own work since 1998, starting with the experimental piece “Achtung Honey”. For the Emerging Choreographers program of Ballett Frankfurt she created ‘between: a dance installation’ in 1999 and in 2001 a duet called ‘Fusiform’. In 2003 she choreographed a piece for 8 dancers entitled “Worship the Flaw” for Amanda Miller’s company, Pretty Ugly / Ballett Freiburg. “Grundlicht”, an evening length work, was created in 2006 at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Her most recent production is entitled “just like that” and has been commissioned by the Transitions Dance Company for the 2008 season.
Allison Brown is teaching workshops throughout Europe, North America and Japan. She has participated in numerous symposia, such as the interdisciplinary “Connect – Between Art and Architecture” symposium at the University of Hannover in June 2005 and the “explorationen 07” at PACT Zollverein in October 2007. Her previous dance experience includes New York City Ballet, Twyla Tharp and Dancers, Amanda Miller’s Pretty Ugly Dance Company and Saburo Teshigawara’s Karas Company. From 1996 to 2004 she was a member of William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt.

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 have developed a piece which will be shown at Frankfurt LAB.

The class begins with a gentle warm-up combining breathing techniques and elements from aikido and yoga. The goal is to gradually set the physical body in motion, make it responsive to movement, as well as wake up the spirit and train the attentiveness of the mind. The next section includes combinations that gradually increase in tempo and dynamics and make use of intense floor work, as well as upright placement in space.
Alignment is the development of awareness for one’s own body, as well as for the space around us. This not merely gives us control over the body, which generally has to do with tension, but rather the steering of our own dance. Dynamic swift shifts are thus possible almost in the resting state of the mind and out of a maximum state of physical relaxation. The class is conceived as holistic training to help dancers get a good start into the rest of their working day.

Kristina Veit received her dance diploma from the Frankfurt University for Music and Performing Arts. After graduation, she left Germany and worked at various theaters in Austria and Switzerland with choreographers such as Robert Poole, Philipp Egli, Anna Huber and Rui Horta. She left the established venues, when she began making her own work and collaborated with companies such as Manopy in Denmark, Cobosmika in Barcelona, the Dance Festival Montevideo Sitiada in Uruguay and diverse other international choreographers. In 2009, she collaborated on the production of [fi:l], in Denmark as well as Mittendrinnen/PET_3 at Mousonturm. She has been studying yoga and Ayurveda intensely since 1997 and teaches both for professionals, as well as beginners. Currently, she is training to become a body-oriented psychotherapist.

Professional training with Gregory Livingston

  • Thu 29.03.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

A contemporary approach using the basic movement principles of José Limón, in collaboration with technique and improvisation. Basic to complex exercises and movement exploration tasks will fine tune the senses and wake up the ability to listen and respond to what is happening at the moment. The class will investigate the usage of weight, space, and dynamics, while concentrating on alignment, musicality, focus, breath of the movement. The class will provide an environment for exploring different modes of learning and developing movement material, thus providing the body with an increased physical activity as the class proceeds.

Gregory Livingston was born in Washington, Tacoma & grew up in NYC. He received his BFA from the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance. Upon graduation he went abroad to join the City Contemporary Dance Company in Hong Kong. He then made his way to Europe and Germany, where he’s been ever since performing for Roberto Galvan, Jean Renshaw, Ismael Ivo, Rui Horta, Iris Tenge, Joseph Tmim, and Claire Russ.
Since 2001, Gregory has been dancing, teaching and choreographing nationally and internationally in conjunction with NY Institute of Dance & Education (NYIDE), The Korean National University of Arts (KNUA), Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), Akram Khan, Tanzplan Frankfurt / Germany, Iwanson School, Codarts-Rotterdam Dance Academy, Balettakademien Stockholm, Folkhögskola Härnösand, Dance Ireland, Opéra de Monte Carlo, Theater Erfurt, Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, as well as other theaters within Germany.
