Professional Training with Allison Brown

  • Wed 26.09.2018 | 10:00 - 11:30
  • Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Waldschmidtstr. 4, 60316 Frankfurt am Main
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
