More saturday practice sessions at Wiesenburg-Halle

I m happy to announce more Saturday Practice Sessions that I will organize/hold at Wiesenburg-Halle.

Currently I m interested in following my research around groups of people becoming one body or an organization or an organism. Soon, I m also beginning a new work on folk dancing today for which I m starting to collect ideas.
The sessions start with body practice dealing with the cellular body (embryology) and eastern practices (I m doing a shiatsu/ki-concept education at the moment), individual work, partner work or work in a group.

In the second part I m interested to experiment on ideas I have for my upcoming group projects.
Some notions I m curious about:

- different ways of experiencing our own and foreign forces (based on some principles Laban is describing as motor forces)
- on yourself
- on or through somebody else
- within a group
- different ’engines’ between towelling, sliding, flying, floating, sinking in etc.
- following the notions on vibration: how to be together, how we exist together (not alone)
- repetition and difference
- how the group becomes
— -> a political body (subjectivity within collectivity)
— -> a community (of beings)
— -> a mechanized construction / movement revealer
— -> an organized abstract form
— -> an unrecognizable form etc....
lots of space for discoveries or for scratching into details till something becomes...else...than what we know already.... images as organs, as prothesis...

- I will also research on hands and arms linking from one to another and formations applying different principles of Laban’s motor forces (e.g. in relation to folk dances), ’Verkettungen’ / formations that can cristallize and be destroyed.

The dates are :
8.12. + 15.12.
29.12. (t.b.c.)
5.1. + 26.1.
and the hours are each time: 10h-13h.

Reflection / Zoom sharing @ Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts

I have had the pleasure to share this work with students and audiences connected to the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. In collaboration with Goethe Institute Hongkong.

After sharing 30min excerpt from the piece on video, we have started a conversation around the topics, practices and concerns touching this work and my practices in general. I have been impressed by the questions coming from the students during this Zoom Meeting, thank you so much.
18. November 2020, 11 - 13h German Time.

Der Bau-Gruppe / Kids @ FRATZ

It is a real pleasure to be able to prepare and present our piece DER BAU-Gruppe / Kids for kids (and adults) from 3 years onwards.

We are also proud to present it in the space where it has been created and developed at first: at Tanzhalle Wiesenburg. It is now shown in the frame of FRATZ Festival Berlin 2020.

Eine Bühne voller schwarzer Säcke. Langsam erwachen sie zum Leben, sie richten sich auf, bewegen sich fort, erkunden den Raum. Plötzlich erscheint ein Arm, dann ein Bein, schließlich ein ganzer Mensch. In Franz Kafkas unvollendeter Erzählung »Der Bau« wird ein Tierbau beschrieben, gebaut von einem Tier, das in den unterirdischen Höhlen und Gängen Schutz sucht und sich dann zunehmend darin verliert. Die Erzählung dient als titelgebende Metapher und Ausgangsbasis für die Erforschung einer besonderen Beziehung zwischen Körper und Raum.

"Nicht Ekstase ist das Ziel der hoch konzentrierten Selbstverschraubung, sondern die meditative Ausstülpung von Bewegungsenergien, die dem Sog des erzeugten Strudels standhalten. Eine beglückende Doppelmeditation, die die Welt auf jeden Fall besser macht." (Astrid Kaminski)
