Professional training

- now on site again!

From June 2020 the open morning classes can take place on site again in compliance with the hygiene rules. To ensure that there is enough space, the professional training will take place at the Frankfurt LAB for the moment.

The open morning classes are directed at professional dance makers (dancers, choreographers, dance pedagogues and dance students). The professional training classes are taught by local and international teachers, alternating on a weekly basis. The range of different styles and techniques is extensive, while the main focus lies on contemporary dance.

Trainers
2nd – 5th June Fabrice Mazliah
8th – 10th + 11th June Frédéric de Carlo
15th – 19th June Petra Lehr
22nd – 26th June Gabrielle Staiger
29th June – 3rd July Laura Hicks

Register
You can register up to 2 days before the day of training by emailing anmeldung@tanzplattformrheinmain.de with the following information: your name, address, availability.

Hygiene controls due to the Covid19 pandemic
• Training will be limited to a maximum of 9 persons in 300m². A minimum distance of 6m per person must be maintained in all directions.
• Masks must be worn to enter the LAB and for registration. For the training itself each person will be allocated one fixed position sufficiently distanced from all the others present – as a result, masks are not required during the professional training itself.
• Training will be conducted without using a ballet barre or other objects.
• For reasons of hygiene no changing rooms, showers or lounges will be available.
• All surfaces and floors and any objects that have been handled will be cleaned (disinfected) before and after training. Extensive ventilation will also take place.
• Registration data will be stored for up to 5 weeks after the day of training in case tracing needs to be done for potential coronavirus. All personal data that have been stored will then be deleted in keeping with data protection regulations.

Biography

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

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

Biography
Frédéric De Carlo studied contemporary dance at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris and holds the French Diploma of Dance Teacher.

He was also involved in the performances of Caroline Creutzburg and Ravvina / Veit. He is currently part of the leading team of ID_Frankfurt.

About the training
In these sessions, the focus will be put on the sense of the self, regarding the moving body. With the help of certain anatomy and physiology principles, and through visualization, the participants will question and refine their sense of proprioception, so to speak how they perceive and inscribe their bodies, jointly with movement and time, in space.

Biography
Petra Lehr received her training in Germany and the USA (e.g. Leonard Pitt School of Mime and Mask Theater, Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, Alvin Ailey American Dance Center). With Matt Mittler and Jonah Emsig she continued her education in physical acting. After several solo pieces, working with musicians and visual artists and working in free groups, she founded the co.lab.tanztheater in Frankfurt in 1993, with which she has worked on 20 productions so far. She teaches contemporary dance, had lectureships at various universities and colleges and leads the dance clubs ü60 (since 2016) and ü40 (since 2017) as part of the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main. She is a Pilates trainer and has the dance medicine certificate.

About the training
The warm up is based on knowledge from dance medicine and includes perception, mobilization and strengthening. The use of breathing also plays a major role in this.
We deal with rhythm, dynamics and focus on different movement centers of our body.
I usually work a lot with contact, which is impossible in the current situation. So we will deal with questions such as contact under the given circumstances via e.g. Body language and gaze is possible. How does the perception of our fellow dancers and the perception of space change?

Biography
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.

About the training
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.

Biography 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.

About the training
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.

Biography 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.

About the training
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.
