Im Rahmen von TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund ist es bis 2021 möglich, vermehrt internationale Dozent*innen einzuladen.

# CATCHING LIMITS

mit Nadine Gerspacher

16. & 17. 02. 2019, 11-17 Uhr im Südufer Freiburg

 

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 movement and its relation to everyday life. Working on reaction, instinct , adding emotions on abstract movements and always giving space for vulnerability, fragility but also strength and brutality. Storytelling is the central interest of her creations and exploring human relationships and experiences of humanity are fundamental to her work.

 

Nadine encourages spontaneity in the creation process. Her choreography draws on relevant and current themes. The play of contrasts and extremes are essential to her creation methods. Nadine fosters collaboration in the studio, offering the opportunity for dancers to be actively engaged in the creation process and to bring their own knowledge and experience into the process. She enjoys getting to know the dancers, creating with them and developing special roles for character work.

# THE AWAKENED BODY

mit Rob Hayden (BE/USA)

22. – 24. März 2019
17-20/ 10-18 Uhr
(1 h Pause) im TIP 
(Lörracherstr. 45, 2. OG, 79115 Freiburg)

 

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 a strong and vital body-breath connection.  These exercises are also designed to gradually unlock the flow of living impulses within the body.  By doing so, we allow our attention, intention and awareness to flow more freely.  Gradually we start to pierce into the heart of our unknown, hidden, or ‘shadow’ sides both within ourselves and within our work.  Naturally, this asks us to develop a greater awareness and trust regarding the dynamic relationship between impulse and action.Elements of physical, psychological, and emotional risk will be introduced each day, challenging our individual limitations, inviting us to go beyond them, revealing our unique language and presence as performers. We will then introduce compositional tools combining movement, spatial and rhythmic awareness through improvised scores.  We will also focus on the relationships between precision and organicity, awareness of space and one’s ability to react to its constituent elements, improvisation within a structure as well as dramaturgical elaboration.

 

ROB HAYDEN, born in the US, was a nationally competitive gymnast for 13 years and in 1989 enrolled in the BFA curriculum for theatre and dance at the University of New Mexico.He joined Ultima Vez in 2002, performing in the creations Blush, Sonic Boom, PUUR, Spiegel and the revivals of What the Body Does Not Remember and In Spite of Wishing and Wanting. Since 2009, he has collaborated as director, choreographer, performer, and composer with various artists from both Belgium and abroad. His own work combines over 20 years of practical and theoretical research and experience into performance, dance, theatre, sound/music, voice and movement. He regularly teaches workshops internationally and is currently based in Brussels.

 

This workshop is open to all actors, dancers, and performers. Training shoes required.

  • 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 ...
