I SEE RED / Interventions

An improvisation event by Peter Pleyer and Michiel Keuper
Guests: Zen Jefferson, Andrea Keiz, Susanne Martin
Dock 11, Berlin 11. – 13. March 2016

Inspired by the history of interventions by artists and designers in the field of choreography and vice versa, dancer/choreographer Peter Pleyer and visual composer/designer Michiel Keuper use this series of performances to improvise new space and dance compositions based on their long-term collaboration. On Friday and Saturday they will be joined by video artist Andrea Keiz and dancer/choreographer Susanne Martin. With a focus on process, the audience is invited to witness the creation of a landscape of objects, costumes, dances, books, stories and images.

TIN Pieces (London 2015)

23.10. 2015 Middlesex University London

‘TIN Pieces’ is a playful evening of improvised performance by members of the TransDisciplinary Improvisation Network (TIN) based at Middlesex University and their guests.
Exploring processes of instant composition, within and across dance, music and theatre the event promises to be a lively celebration of all things spontaneous. The evening is shaped through a chain like structure in which ‘scored’ improvisation pieces are linked by open ‘riffing’ spaces alongside interactions with the audience, who will have opportunities to shape the emerging improvisations.
Including world class performers in Music (Ben Dwyer, Garth Knox, Jonathan Impett and Simon Limbrick), Dance (Susanne Martin, Jovair Longo, Helen Kindred)  and Performance (anthologyofames collective), TIN pieces emerge from shared interests in improvisatory processes and play, feedback loops, fear and vulnerability, touch and embodied knowing.

With: Mariana Camilotti, Antonio de la Fe, Ben Dwyer, Peter Gomes, Jonathan Impett, Helen Kindred, Garth Knox, Simon Limbrick, Jovair Longo, Susanne Martin, Vida Midgelow, Maga Radlowska, Petra Söör, Robert Vesty,

The Performance is part of The Cultural Capital Exchange, Inside Out Festival, and ‘What’s in a Name?: Improvisation Symposium (Oct 23rd & 24th, Middlesex University)

At the intersection of folkdance culture and contemporary improvisation culture this international trio indulges in made up and experienced cultural roots, traditions they never had and dances they never learned.
Connecting home is: the practice of improvisation and contact improvisation.
The shared questions are: how much improvisation can a thematically set piece take without bursting? And how much individuality can an improvised trio take without falling apart?
Dressed in Bavarian Dirndl’s, armed with irony, supported by newest improvisation technologies the three dancers dig into our projections and clichés of country living and the traditional. They are odd and familiar in their pride of and will for a self-made nature idyll and in their passionate attempt to include every soul in the room into the warmth of their temporary village.

Press:
“Hoppalappa is a performance you want to experience rather than observe“
“Hoppalappa, an hour long display of exhilaration, strings of associations, of well trained collaboration and of joyful courage towards the unknown. The safety net is called humour.“
“It was a joy to look into the minds of these crazy performers and to be embraced by their warm madness when it’s so damn cold outside.”

Rosi bei Freistil – Die Kunst der Improvisation (2008/2009)

„Material zu Rosi tanzt Rosi“ Eine Soloimprovisation

Freistil at Tanzfabrik Berlin 6. 4. 2008

Was macht Tanz lesbar für die Zuschauer?
Was ist der Text eines Tanzes?
Wie erhalte ich meine Freiheit in der Improvisation, wenn ich mit klaren thematischen Grenzen und Narration arbeite?
