WORKSHOP mit Jana Unmüßig

25. & 26. Mai 2019
10-18 Uhr (1 h Lunch) im E-WERK (Ferdinand-Weiss Strasse 6a, 79106 Freiburg)


The two day workshop Doing Dramaturgy – ways of knowing about the work at work explores various aspects of contemporary dramaturgical practices. On the one hand the workshop discusses dramaturgy as a way of seeing/ interpreting work and on the other hand as an artistic practice in its own terms.
The first day starts with the reading of selected writings on contemporary dramaturgy. We then turn to viewing documentations of experimental contemporary dance/choreography/live art performances and practice critical reflection about the works we viewed. Towards the end of this first day, we share thoughts and knowledge on how far composing a piece does the dramaturgy of the work – without explicitly needing A dramaturgy.
The second day starts with an intervention by Finnish dramaturge Otso Huopaniemi (Doctor of Arts) exposing us to his view on dramaturgy as artistic practice in an expanded field of theatre. We then inquire through concrete exercises that Otso Huopaniemi proposes how his conception of dramaturgy can open up constructive matters of performances lingering within the realm of choreography, dance.
Writings on dramaturgy will be in English. A list with the selected passages will be sent to workshop participants some days prior to the workshop so that texts will be read when the workshop starts. Otso Huopaniemi´s intervention will be in English.


JANA UNMÜSSIG is an artist-researcher with a background in experimental contemporary choreography.

  • THE AWAKENED BODY mit Rob Hayden (BE/USA)

    The overriding emphasis is on developing within oneself what can be called the ‘total act’; a state wherein the performer opens to a wider range of one’s own ‘movement as a theatrical act’ rather than as a technique. Drawing from over a decade of experience working with Ultima Vez and based on over 25 years of performance research into dance, theatre, and music, the central focus of this workshop will concentrate on concrete, yet, simple asks designed to deal with risk.  Confronting this volatile starting point is the first step in helping one to access with greater awareness their own creative reservoir and put it into action. Once unlocked, our attention, intention and awareness guide our work naturally. We begin with a series of physical exercises that enable one to establish...

  • CATCHING LIMITS mit Nadine Gerspacher

    The first part of the workshop consists in exercises to awaken the body and generate awareness of the entire physical instrument. Attention is given to breath, joint articulation, muscle tone and stability to improve physical strength. Nadine invites students to participate in technical exercises, including floor work, games and challenging phrase composition. Students learn to activate and ground their centers in a way that allows them to experience optimal freedom in their movement. Partnering working,  guided improvisations and theatrical tasks highlight the class activities to support playfulness and creativity in movement and expression. In the second part of the workshop Nadine´s process puts emphasis on creating characters and defining personalities through researching moveme...

  • OBJECTIVITIES – contact improvisation workshop with Yanniv Mintzer

    OBJECT – “anything that is visible or tangible and is relatively stable in form” ity- “condition or quality of being” working with objects has been a huge source of new information in the dance for me, in the past few years. when we hold or touch an object, our system is informed and begins to seek connection and relationship with the object. i imagine the nerves crawling up the object, to study it, play with it and make it part of the body. this process, when approached with honesty and playfulness, gives birth to fountains of new information, teaching us something very essential about the way we function and interact with this world. it also provides unedited functional tools to move, deliver weight and relate to eachother. we will explore different objects ...
