# hit the beat
In addition to some technical elements Karolin invites the dancers to be aware of the body weight and to play with the rhythm of movement. In this particular class, she shares her interest in using the body as a drummer, varying with many different rhythms and using the body musicality to synchronize as a group. The dancers get trained in coordination and sense of rhythm. Her passion for details and energy through a choreographed form has brought her over the years to develop a very special way to create movement material – her mouth-beatbox system as a steady companion. She encourages people to dance without fear and hesitation, using physicality and full energy. Influenced by various dance techniques, floor work is a very important part of the class. In general, this class is usually considered a very powerful, joyous, and challenging class that attracts dancers who love the physicality of dancing.
Karolin Stächele trained at TIP – the Freiburg School for Dance, Improvisation and Performance (2009-2011). Since 2013 she has worked as a freelance dancer, performer, choreographer and dance teacher. In 2014 she founded the DAGADA dance company with her first full-length work “loser” (further productions: “GRENZLAND” 2015, “radical matter” 2016, “the BLOB” 2017, “Androgynous” 2017, “MYTH” 2018). 2018 she creates the interdisciplinary piece “T.” for the Freiburg-Festival (produktion: E-Werk Freiburg). In 2019 she dances in Blood Song (choreography: Maya M. Carroll, production: E-Werk Freiburg). Karolin showed her works in Freiburg, Offenburg, Berlin, Leipzig, Cologne, Basel/Switzerland, Brest/France, Haarlem/Netherlands and Prague/Czech Republic.
From 2017-2019 she is receiving the three-year conceptual funding of the city of Freiburg and is currently working on her new project “LoveArchive” (www.lovearchive.live), an artistic research with the goal of a performative installation from 26.1.-1.2.2020 at E-Werk Freiburg on the topic “how do you love?“.
