Class Description

Durch Improvisationen kommen wir in Kontakt mit unserem Körper und weiten unser Bewusstsein zu der Dreidimensionalität des Raumes aus. Wir gehen dann durch die Erforschung und das Ausüben von Bewegungen aus Floorwork, Acrobatics und mglw. Partnering. Am Ende tanzen wir eine Choreographie, die die Elemente Grounding, Atmen, Elastizität und Schwung fokussiert.

15.-19.11. | Profitraining | Ilana Reynolds

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Playing the Rebound – This class is inspired by the capacity to jump, propel, lift off, and land. How can the sensation of jumping be sustained as a rebounding quality in the body? The breath serves as a fundamental support for movement ease and body alignment. The class evolves through space in stages of bouncing, running and leaping. Specific improvisational tasks invite a sense of weight, fall/recovery, expansion, and momentum as we move across the floor and into dancing together. The aim is to ignite a sense of vitality and full on dancing that is alive, buoyant and creatively charged.

15% Breath work

15% Physical endurance

30% Building Improvisational dance skills

40% Dancing together

»In C« von Sasha Waltz & Guests zur gleichnamigen Musik von Terry Riley mit der Tänzerin Margaux Marielle-Tréhoüart von Sasha Waltz & Guests

2021 begann die Choreographin Sasha Waltz mit ihrer Tanzcompagnie Sasha Waltz & Guests einen neuartigen künstlerischen Prozess auf der Basis von Terry Rileys seiner Zeit revolutionärer Musik »In C« (1964) – einer offenen Komposition, die aus 53 musikalischen Figuren besteht sowie aus Hinweisen, wie diese Figuren von den Musiker*innen zu spielen sind. Basierend auf diesem Meilenstein der Musikgeschichte entwickelte Sasha Waltz gemeinsam mit ihren Tänzer*innen choreographisches Material, das einer ähnlich variablen Struktur folgt. Entstanden ist ein dynamisches, modulares Spielsystem aus 53 Bewegungsfiguren für eine strukturierte Improvisation mit klaren Regeln und Gesetzen sowie einer variablen Besetzungsstärke.

Die Tänzerin Margaux Marielle-Tréhoüart gibt Tänzer*innen der Leipziger Tanzszene im Rahmen eines Workshops erste Einblicke in das Konzept von »In C« und ermöglicht ein spielerisches Kennenlernen und Ausprobieren des Bewegungsmaterials.

WORKSHOPS

05.06. | 15-18:00 | Luis Lara Malvacias

Luis Lara Malvacias „Awareness“

The workshop includes a simple, slow, warm-up focusing on breathing, internal structure, weight, and the body’s articulations. Directed exercises and suggested improvisations will contribute to expanding the dancers’ physical practice and give them a deeper awareness of their own physical uniqueness. By providing an understanding of how somatic practices can be applied to dance and movement, it will offer the opportunity for the participants to deepen their perceptual abilities, to advance their sensory awareness and to approach technical challenges with increased movement capability. As the class progresses we look to integrate the parts of the body and the use of the floor, and finishing sometimes with an individual manipulation of a provided phrase. This class is the result of personal investigations and by my many years of studying different somatic practices, particularly Klein Technique™ and the Feldenkrais Method®

About Luis Lara Malvacias

Is a Venezuelan choreographer and trans-disciplinary artist, whose work focus on ideas of transformation, multiplicity and authorship. His projects explore the interaction between dance, design, videos, installations, sound, new media and the visual arts, questioning preconceived ideas of choreography and modes of production and presentation.

08.-12.11. | 10-11:30 | Gisela De Paz Solvas

 

We will start the class with a warm-up through guided improvisation, opening energy pathways, increasing the range of motion, creating functional strength and flowing movement sequences that can be adapted to fit anyone´s abilities. After we will do barre and center work using the ballet language and structure to explore somatic movement, offering a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming and accepting atmosphere.

Lisanne Goodhue „Contemporary dance techniques, ballet and somatics“

The goal of the class is to incorporate the joy of moving and sweating together into our daily routine. The class is constructed around free explorations and exercises borrowed from contemporary dance techniques, ballet, and somatics (pliés, dégagés, turns, jumps, etc). We start by exercises that loosen, mobilize, and strengthen the physical potential of our joints, muscles, and posture. We focus on the breath, mobilization of the spine, strengthening of the core, articulation of the foot, working on one leg, folding and unfolding of the bigger joints of the arms and legs. With safe distances, in solo, or group, we will train coordination, visualization, cardio, the usage of various speeds and momentum. The second part of the class focuses on moving into space and learning short movement sequences based on the physical notions experienced in the class.

Tamas Geza Moricz „Movement-awareness“

His work aims to elevate movement-awareness, using a variety of tools that leads dancers to a heightened sense of precision and articulacy while their body is in movement. In a comprehensible manner Tamas connects principles of classical ballet training, the Forsythe Improvisational Technologies, approaches from neuroscientific research, martial arts, authentic yogic principles, physio-therapeutic exercises and PNF. The result is a well defined, tool-based educational course aimed towards high achievement and progress. Working with Tamas can radically empower and enable dancers to function in any demanding environment. His guidance often leads to a new vision on what qualitative performing is and accessing a variety of professional demands at an individual’s greatest capacity. The resulting knowledge is applicable to both classical ballet as well as contemporary dance and brings performers to their highest level of authenticity, artistry and grace, regardless of style.

About Tamas Geza Moricz 

Tamas is most noted for his collaboration with choreographer William Forsythe, theatre maker Jan Fabre and his recent co-directorship of the Royal Ballet of Flanders shared with choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Tamas has graduated from the Magyar Tancmuveszeti Akademia, the Hungarian State Ballet Academy. Following he’d worked with Jan Fabre/Troubleyn Co. and then moved on to a decade long company membership with William Forsythe and his seminal Ballet Frankfurt. Other artists works he’d performed in include: Jiri Kylian, Mats Ek, Saburo Teshigowara, Hans Van Manen, Robert North, Kurt Joos, Crystal Pite, Tony Rizzi, Jacopo Godani, Jonathan Burrows and countless others. Tamas also appeared in composer Ryuichi Sakamoto’s Tokyo opera “Life”. In 1999 during the live performance, the show presented his dancing as the first live-transmitted-image through the (then) newly formed Internet. After his dancing years Tamas had embarked on a journey of teaching, offering a unique expertise drawn from his experiences in both the classical ballet as well as contemporary dance world.
