class description

Contemporary Ballet

My teaching is based on a combination of ballet and contemporary dance with an emphasis on position and movement efficiency, while at the same time taking into account the individual needs and abilities of each participant. The training is structured with exercises on the bar from simple to complex sequences of movements in space, which sharpen the sense of movement through dynamic changes between positions and spatial orientation. The aim is to discover ballet as a tool in contemporary dance by giving the participants more freedom of movement and awareness of their own movement potential. The training can thus form an innovative basis for improvisation.

Bio:

Richard Oberscheven is a contemporary dancer, choreographer, lecturer and DJ. He is trained in classical and contemporary dance, Improvisation and Feldenkrais and holds a Bachelor of Arts in DANCE from the HfMDK Frankfurt am Main. During his studies he received a scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. Oberscheven is co-founder of the artists‘ collective Kunstschaffende Frankfurt, a platform for exchange and networking for performance, dance and choreography. As a dancer Oberscheven has received engagements for companies and choreographers* such as Tony Rizzi and the Bad Habits, the Saarland State Ballet Saarbrücken, and Freies Tanz Theater Frankfurt. Since 2014 Richard has been showing his choreographic works throughout Germany. He teaches professional training at TanzFaktur Köln, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, tanznetz|Freiburg, gives workshops in various dance studios and at the Frankfurt University for Applied Sciences. His teaching is inspired and influenced by various improvisation systems such as Improvisation Technologies by William Forsythe. In his practice Oberscheven experiments with dynamic changes of positions and spatial directions and searches for natural elements of movement to experience dance as a living anatomy.

class description

Become available

Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.
