The Tanzplattform Rhein-Main offers various weekend workshops by internationally renowned teachers such as Frey Faust, Jeremy Wade, Candoco Dance Company and Susanne Bentley. Some courses are exclusively for professional dancers, others are also open for people without prior dance training. The various technical and somatic methods as well as the artistic approaches, featured in the workshops, help hone physical experience, open up new perspectives on movement analysis and embodiment and demonstrate creative possibilities for developing one’s own choreographic or performance practice.
Workshop with Massala Dance Company: Oum
The Moroccan-French choreographer Fouad Boussouf’s latest work by his Massala Dance Company, whose work featured Näss during the Rhein-Main 2018 Dance Festival, re-examines the synthesis of traditional North African and Arabic art and culture and hip-hop. Based on the great Arabian divas such as Oum Kalthoum, Ismahan and Leila Mourad, he uses his dancers to investigate how hip-hop, as a cultural “foreign body”, overwrites memories musically, physically and socially, thus making physical limitations superfluous in conjunction with traditions:
