Professional Training with Kasia Kizior

  • Fri 07.12.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • 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,-

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.

The teachers are the current MA CoDE students (Master of Contemporary Dance ducation HfMDK): Tim Čečetka, Marina Grün, Susanne Schneider, Katelyn Skelley, Juan Urbina, Amelia Uzategui Bonilla

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.

  • 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?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Length: 40 min.

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.

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.

Choreography: Taulant Shehu
With: Amelia Eisen, Jorge Bascuñan Rivera Neto, Richard Oberscheven, Mamiko Sakurai, Lara Peinado, Max Levy

Dua is a production in the context of the multi-city residence programme of the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, a project of Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Hessisches Staatsballett.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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

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?

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.

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.

Length: 75 min.

How do our bodies shape the way we perceive the world around us? Can we influence how we are seen by others? Drawing on scores, ideas, and themes from their work The Way You Look (at me) Tonight – developed in collaboration with philosopher of perception Alva Noë – Claire Cunningham and Jess Curtis explore together with the workshop participants through movement, language, watching, listening and feeling, how differences – of physicality or lived experience – can shape, and are shaped by, the way we ‘perform’ our perceptions.

This workshop is accessible to people with diverse physical abilities and basic movement or dance experience. In English.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main

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.

  • 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.

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.

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. The LIGNA project can be booked for individual performances by schools and other institutions in the Rhine-Main area.

Eine Produktion der Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, in Koproduktion mit Kampnagel und HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden, unterstützt durch das NATIONALE PERFORMANCE NETZ Koproduktionsförderung Tanz, gefördert von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.

  • Fri 15.06.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

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

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

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. The LIGNA project can be booked for individual performances by schools and other institutions in the Rhine-Main area.

Eine Produktion der Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, in Koproduktion mit Kampnagel und HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden, unterstützt durch das NATIONALE PERFORMANCE NETZ Koproduktionsförderung Tanz, gefördert von der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

  • 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).

Seen something that you simply didn’t understand? During their seven-month long outreach residency, the performance duo Janna Pinsker and Wicki Bernhardt delved into the pleasures of not understanding and not knowing. Before or directly after select performances in March, they will develop research assignments together with the audience, which question and test personal perception and strategies of understanding. The outreach machine strikes again with speculations, conversations with objects from the pieces and a gigantic game of scrabble!

Foyer GF / 4.3. – 23.3.2018 before and after select shows / the concrete dates will be announced soon / in German and English / Attendance is free.

  • 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. 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.

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.

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.

Who has pink things, who has blue ones? Who’s strong, who is smart? Who wears what, who moves in what way? And who actually kisses whom? These are the questions raised by Swiss choreographer Tabea Martin in “Pink for Girls & Blue for Boys” for children age eight and up and their parents. Between sofa, houseplants, lots of popcorn, theatrical smoke and music, two women and two men spark an increasingly wild dance of characters, styles and couples – and a game of gender roles. Who is a boy and what is a girl, and who actually decides these things? How about we simply forget all boundaries and do what we want? An exciting-entertaining piece about clichés, prejudices and colourful possibilities, which encourages people to think for themselves, to interfere and – last, but not least – is simply a whole lot of fun.

For all aged 8+!

  • 12 Euro / rem. 6 Euro

Right behind the skullcap, a constant electronic fire of nerve fibres in the brain creates one dodgy state of as-if after another. With a great love for confrontational humour, Caroline Creutzburg has made the appalling difference between brain and rest of the world, the starting point of her performance “Nerve Collection”. Like a spy invading her own nervous system, she documents her empathies and intolerances. Her inconspicuous approach allows her to remain unnoticed to herself and thus stumble upon landscapes of bizarre incompatibilities, the monotone pump of aggressive veins, long out-dated moral principles and ancient, holy auto-bio material. The solo, in which Caroline Creutzburg assembles her findings into an album of texts, songs and costumes, was awarded the Jury Prize 2017 at Hamburg’s Körber Studio for Young Directors.

Cancelled! Susanne Bentley: Get Down!

  • Sat 24.02.2018 | 10:00 - 16:00
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • 190 Eur red. 140 Euro (students) / Early bird discount: 170 Euro /95 Euro red. (students)

Susanne’s classes start at ground level: strengthening centre and upper body by travelling across the floor with set material or improvisations. With a strong centre we can move fluidly and economically on all levels.
The focus then shifts to passing through different levels, exploring inverted material. Emphasis is placed on efficient use of the body. We use gravity, momentum and weight of body parts, spirals, direction and softness to find fluidity and ease in, out and over the floor, building up to a final phrase to end the class.
Get Down! is inspired by Susanne Bentley`s passion for moving on all levels and in all directions. Her focus is on a playful, supportive environment to approach challenging material and intense physicality. Participants should come expecting to sweat and have fun.

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

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.

  • Fri 16.02.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6,-, 10er-Karte € 35,-, Monatskarte € 50,-

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

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

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

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 €

Inspired by the research into developmental movement patterns, the training proposes diverse pathways towards reembodying our developmental body and its potentialities as a reference space from which to move into action. Nourishing ourselves with the developmental information, we go back to where we all have been and remember what we all already know. We shake off the dust of immobility, clear the flow within, expand inner spaces and become intimate with our developmental resources. We sense what we need to do and we do it, fully mobile and functional. Both exploration- and structure-based training modes facilitate a pathway towards tapping into the fullness of our developmental movement potentials. We identify key dynamic triggers; and through a set of movement situations and games, we motivate action delighting in its fluidity and joy. We invite and encourage our innate drive to return to a state of dynamic equilibrium. The training is based on the inquiry within the frame of BACK HOME movement practice developed out of the research into developmental movement patterns, Jurewicz Movement Technique, contemporary dance and martial arts. It applies the developmental movement classification (Basic Neurocellular Patterns) as proposed by Body-Mind Centering®.

Aleksandra Scibor
In 2005 Aleksandra joined the Alter Dance Theatre, and between 2005 and 2008 received a thorough training in the Jurewicz Movement Technique. She danced with Alter until 2010, performing in The Claw, What Would You Do if You Could Do What You Can’t Do?, Shitty Dance Shitty, And What… and Lovers. Alongside she was exploring improvisation and Contact Improvisation, and integrating her interpreting skills into the translation of the language of dance. Aleksandra has cooperated with, among others, Nigel Charnock (Happy), Jacek Owczarek (Pracownia Fizyczna, Occurrences), Tomasz Rodowicz and Robert M. Hayden (Chorea, Oratorium Dance Project, Bacchantes), and Rafał Dziemidok (Koncentrat, Nut. Squirrel.).
She holds a Master of Arts in English Philology, Specialisation: Conference Interpreting (Department of Translation Studies, Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland), a Postgraduate Degree in Cultural Management (Collegium of World Economy, Warsaw School of Economics, Poland), and a Master of Arts in Contemporary Dance Education (Department of Contemporary and Classical Dance, Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, Germany). Her latest M.A. thesis Stimulating Internal Core Support Through Developmental Movement Patterns researched into the reawakening of the navel space radiation. Currently she is studying within the Body-Mind Centering® Certification Program – Somatic Movement Education.

Inspired by the research into developmental movement patterns, the training proposes diverse pathways towards reembodying our developmental body and its potentialities as a reference space from which to move into action. Nourishing ourselves with the developmental information, we go back to where we all have been and remember what we all already know. We shake off the dust of immobility, clear the flow within, expand inner spaces and become intimate with our developmental resources. We sense what we need to do and we do it, fully mobile and functional. Both exploration- and structure-based training modes facilitate a pathway towards tapping into the fullness of our developmental movement potentials. We identify key dynamic triggers; and through a set of movement situations and games, we motivate action delighting in its fluidity and joy. We invite and encourage our innate drive to return to a state of dynamic equilibrium. The training is based on the inquiry within the frame of BACK HOME movement practice developed out of the research into developmental movement patterns, Jurewicz Movement Technique, contemporary dance and martial arts. It applies the developmental movement classification (Basic Neurocellular Patterns) as proposed by Body-Mind Centering®.

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.

  • 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?

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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • Eintritt frei!

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

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

140 dance passionados from the Rhine-Main region, five professional dancers, and one internationally renowned music ensemble followed the invitation of french choreographer Sylvain Groud to dance to music by Steve Reich. “Music for 18 Musicians” is an extra-large inclusive dance concert, in which Groud and conductor Rémi Durupt unite their art forms into a shared score. In a series of rehearsals, the participants were introduced to this pulsating-hypnotic piece in order to discover the possibilities of the body and the power of movement and gaze that it evokes. During the performance, they connect musicians and audience and so provide a collective music experience. Together, they occupy the theatre until it becomes fully unclear, who exactly is an insider or who has simply been carried away by the unique energy.

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

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

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

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

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.

Reaching the intangible

a MIND THE DANCE lab about documenting artistic practice

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

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

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

Reaching the intangible

a MIND THE DANCE lab about documenting artistic practice

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

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

  • 19 Euro | erm. 9 Euro

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

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

  • 19 Euro | erm. 9 Euro

“Sunny, yesterday my heart was filled with pain. Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.” Bobby Hebb’s often-covered song from the year 1966 is one of the greatest earworms in pop history. Now, the hit song now serves as the starting point for a turbulent group piece by France-based choreographer Emanuel Gat, who has created a show, which brings dance and music together in a very special way in collaboration with former dancer and shooting star of the French electro scene Awir Leon. Gat gives free rein to allow his dancers to react to Leon’s live sound. Out of the self-regulating choreographic system, polyphonic structures and fragile movement patterns emerge that echo like a single note only to reside again. Sounds and movements merge into breathtakingly beautiful artistic synaesthesia.

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.

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

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

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

  • 19 Euro | erm. 9 Euro

Frankfurt last hosted Berlin choreographer Isabelle Schad with her choreography “Collective Jumps” during the German Dance Platform 2016. Now she returns with a piece that again showcases her unusual choreographic approach – one that is deeply embedded in the corporeal and simultaneously imbued with influences from the visual arts. In “Solo for Lea”, Schad continues exploring the relationship between body, movement and image to create an intimate piece for the unique dancer that is Lea Moro: Schad re-organizes the dancer’s deconstructed body and plays with analogies and formal aspects of cubism, as well as Picasso’s drawings composed of a single line. The result is a dance portrait, which plays with and reveals the specific features of Moro’s body and its rhythms, contours, colours and energies.

My class develops from plain and pure body-work/work-out exercises, through short floor- and standing combinations into more complex choreographic sequences.
Some of the basic principles which are constantly worked with are finding, strengthening and shifting the center, resting and exploding into space, moving expansively and taking risks. The class is very physical, energetic and athletic but it also focuses on increasing the physical awareness in order to work within a frame in which one can push his individual limits but keep the body safe. I want to encourage the participants to take their own decisions, so they can find their own way of playing with quality, musicality and dynamics and strengthen their individual expression as a performer.

Michael Löhr studied contemporary dance at the Cologne University of Music and Dance and subsequently received a scholarship to visit the annual summer academy in Kyoto, Japan. As a performer he has been involved in various projects including collaborations with Ahn Eun-Me Company, Emanuel Gat Dance, Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg, Tanztheater Bielefeld, Unterwegstheater Heidelberg and has performed at numerous dance festivals around the world. In addition, he works as choreographic assistant of Emanuel Gat and is regularly invited to teach contemporary classes or workshops for institutions such as Ballet National de Marseille, Candoco Dance Company, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Polish National Ballet, Potsdamer Tanztage, PVC Freiburg, Tanz im August, Tanzhaus NRW and Unterwegstheater Heidelberg.

Olivia Hyunsin Kim: Miss Yellow and Me - I wanna be a Musical

  • Thu 19.10.2017 | 19:00
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main,
    Studio 1
  • 12 Euro | erm. 6 Euro

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

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

My class develops from plain and pure body-work/work-out exercises, through short floor- and standing combinations into more complex choreographic sequences.
Some of the basic principles which are constantly worked with are finding, strengthening and shifting the center, resting and exploding into space, moving expansively and taking risks. The class is very physical, energetic and athletic but it also focuses on increasing the physical awareness in order to work within a frame in which one can push his individual limits but keep the body safe. I want to encourage the participants to take their own decisions, so they can find their own way of playing with quality, musicality and dynamics and strengthen their individual expression as a performer.

Michael Löhr studied contemporary dance at the Cologne University of Music and Dance and subsequently received a scholarship to visit the annual summer academy in Kyoto, Japan. As a performer he has been involved in various projects including collaborations with Ahn Eun-Me Company, Emanuel Gat Dance, Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg, Tanztheater Bielefeld, Unterwegstheater Heidelberg and has performed at numerous dance festivals around the world. In addition, he works as choreographic assistant of Emanuel Gat and is regularly invited to teach contemporary classes or workshops for institutions such as Ballet National de Marseille, Candoco Dance Company, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Polish National Ballet, Potsdamer Tanztage, PVC Freiburg, Tanz im August, Tanzhaus NRW and Unterwegstheater Heidelberg.

Helena Waldmann: Gute Pässe Schlechte Pässe

  • Wed 18.10.2017 | 19:30
  • Staatstheater Darmstadt, Kleines Haus, Georg-Büchner-Platz 1, 64283 Darmstadt
  • ab 10 Euro | erm. ab 9,25 Euro

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

  • Frankfurt LAB, Schmidtstr. 12, 60326 Frankfurt am Main
  • 19 Euro | erm. 9€

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

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

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.
