Professional Training with Patricia Gimeno

  • Mon 25.02.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

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

Patricia Gimeno is a contemporary dancer working mainly between Germany and Spain. Her dance education includes Ballet, Modern dance, Contemporary dance, Improvisation and Contact Improvisation, having studied in Europe and USA with teachers like Francesc Bravo, Cristiane Boullosa, Reinhild Hoffmann, Carolyn Carlson, Nancy Stark Smith and Sara Shelton Mann among others. Her interest in learning further brought her to graduate in Dance, Psychology and MA in Contemporary Dance Pedagogy, which are relevant influences in her teaching approach. She has always been combining her career as an interpreter of dance with her interest in teaching.
She has collaborated with artists like William Forsythe, Los Ballets de Madrid, Thiasos or Pioré Danza. During the last two years she has been part of the teachers team at Professional Dance Academy in Castilla y León and MOVE arte para todos, where she keeps coordinating different projects. Moreover she is dancing with choreographers like Meyling Bisogno, Billinger&Schülz and Hicks&Bühler, and mingling these experiences with her own artistic work.

  • Mon 04.03.2019 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • Einzelkarte € 6 | 10er-Karte € 35 | Monatskarte € 50

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mar Rodríguez is a freelance teacher, dancer and choreographer from Spain. She graduated in Performance and Choreography from the CSDMA, Madrid and she also studied the Master’s degree in Contemporary Dance Education (MA CoDE) established at the Frankfurt University of Music and performance Arts.
As a dancer she worked for Ballet de Teatres, Ava Dance Company, Dani Pannullo Dance Theatre Co, dance company DA MOTUS!, amongst others.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In 2019, Paul is looking forward to choregraphic residencies in Limerick, Frankfurt and Chicago for various insitutions, and thrilled to have further presentation opportunities for the piece Cella, co-choreographed with long-term friend Narelle Benjamin.
Paul’s class is designed to warm, stretch, release and tone the whole body. Not based in any singular contemporary technique, although influenced by yoga, release technique, Kung Fu and floor work. The class focuses on grounding the body’s energy and power in dynamic movement. Also on, articulating the spine as the instigator of movement and working strongly the core to increase weight transfer ability out into the space. Opening up different sequential movement pathways to find power and grace. Continually working in and out of the floor seamlessly and efficiently. Physically demanding.

His twenty year long career history as a performer and artistic collaborator includes working with companies and directors; Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre), Tanja Liedtke, Nigel Jamieson and Garry Stewart (Australian Dance Theatre), Narelle Benjamin, Kristina Chan, Martin Del Amo, Danzahoy.

Paul is the Honorary Patron of Tanzrauschen Wuppertal, a dance-on-film society founded in Wuppertal, and is a founding member of the Free Arts Scene Society, Wuppertal Germany. He is the recipient of eight national and international awards for his performance and choreographic work. (Australian Dance Awards, Helpmann Awards, Tänzer des Jahres, UK Critics Circle award)

In 2019, Paul is looking forward to choregraphic residencies in Limerick, Frankfurt and Chicago for various insitutions, and thrilled to have further presentation opportunities for the piece Cella, co-choreographed with long-term friend Narelle Benjamin.
Paul’s class is designed to warm, stretch, release and tone the whole body. Not based in any singular contemporary technique, although influenced by yoga, release technique, Kung Fu and floor work. The class focuses on grounding the body’s energy and power in dynamic movement. Also on, articulating the spine as the instigator of movement and working strongly the core to increase weight transfer ability out into the space. Opening up different sequential movement pathways to find power and grace. Continually working in and out of the floor seamlessly and efficiently. Physically demanding.

  • 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.

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

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

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