Workshops and Training Sessions:
Generally speaking, I teach what I embody as dancer and performer. I teach what I know most about, what I learned and still passionately study. So I design my dance teaching around one of the following 3 focal points
– contact Improvisation,
– improvisation and composition for performance (group-duet-solo),
– improvisation-based workout
now that I finished my PhD I will finally make time to develop a series of thematic seminars that combine practical and theoretical inputs and explorations with the participants.
– artistic research;
– improvisation as exploration, as performance, as research;
– showing process on stage;
– dance and narration;
– relating to audiences;
– subjectivity: made of transitions and (un)coordinated changes
– undoing age appropriateness;
– improvising age(ing);
– performing age(ing);
I keep developing the hybrid format of lecture performance.
I’m staging, dancing and discussing aspects, entrances and excerpts of my dissertation Dancing Age(ing).
– For past lecture performances go to „Research“ in the menu.
– Understanding Dance for Beginners and Intermediates is a series of 7 minutes mini-lectures I perform during my monthly mixed performance night 7 Minutes of Fame (curated together with Marlène Colle).
Coaching / Supervising:
I started to support individuals and groups in developing their respective artistic/research practices. I’m supporting processes of performance making, I’m sharing inputs, tools and strategies from dance, theatre, and from my personal experience with collaborative artistic/research practice.
