Residential Workshop Italy 15 – 20 Sept 2023 Susanne & Francesco

MOVING INSIDE OUTSIDE
Contact Improvisation – Push Hands (Tai Chi) – Qi Gong – Partnering – Outdoor Explorations – Performance Scores 
Intensive dance workshop with Susanne Martin and Francesco Zita at Casina Settarte, Puglia Italy, 15 – 20 September 2023

Susanne’s teaching is based in contact improvisation, instant composition and 30 years of creating performances in the field of contemporary dance and theatre. During her studio classes we will focus on the principals and techniques of contact improvisation and how they lead to playful physical co-creativity in duet, trio and group situations. We will create a respectful environment to deepen our understanding of skilful touch, proximity and degrees of weight exchange to (further) clarify and deepen our joy and interest in improvised dance.

Francesco‘s teaching is based on principles from Aikido, Tai Chi – Push Hands, Chi Kung, contact improvisation, partnering, instant composition and body work. During his studio classes we will focus on the practise of partnering starting with basic Push Hands Tai Chi. We’ll practice grounding, spirals and flow into movement, intention, connection centre-extremity, moving without effort, exploring different kinds of touch and weight, tuning with partners and environment, energetic massage, enjoying the unknown.

During outdoor sessions we will focus on our relationship to the natural landscape of Itria Valley / Trullo’s  valley: ancient olive trees, rocks, Apulian red earth, the sea, wind, light and shadow. We open ourselves to a different sense of space, time and relationship and explore how that can be a resource for our dancing.

Some evenings we will perform for each other to share our practices and findings of the workshop.

It will be a week of intense artistic study in the studio and the surrounding land & a sunrise trip to the sea. To fully appreciate the beauty of this part of Italy at the end of summer we recommend to add a few days of holiday somewhere around Itria Valley or at Casina Settarte itself. If you want to stay on at Casina contact Francesco at info@casinasettarte.org

Was ist Tanz? (April 2022)

Centre Francais Berlin S.K.A.T.#1 Was ist Tanz Flyer 27.04.22
Mit Susanne Martin und Jan Burkhardt

Durch eine Mischung von Vortrag, Workshop und Performance widmen wir uns einigen zentralen Tanzthemen wie zum Beispiel:

Wonach gucken wir, wenn wir Tanz sehen?
Woran denken wir, wenn wir selbst tanzen?
Wie verhält sich Tanz zu Ton und zu Musik?
Was könnte man wissen und was will ich wissen über Tanz?
Wie passen Tanz und Alter(n) zusammen?

Anders gesagt: Mit Hilfe von Wahrnehmungsaufgaben, Bewegungsaufgaben (kein Zwang) und gemeinsamem Nachdenken lade ich ein, sich dem Phänomen Tanz anzunähern. Außerdem konnte ich meinen wunderbaren Kollegen Jan Burkhardt (Tänzer/Choreograph/Tanzvermittler) gewinnen in einem Gastbeitrag etwas zu unserem Tanzverstehen beizutragen. Also es wird spannend. Vorwissen oder spezielle körperliche Fähigkeiten sind nicht erforderlich. Alle Altersgruppen sind willkommen, Expert*innen und Genies jeglicher Art dürfen auch mitmachen.

Artistic Research on Improvisation & Engineering

A postdoctoral research project at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), hosted by Instant-Lab, Prof. Simon Henein

In this postdoctoral research I examine dance improvisation in its potential to rethink and advance processes of learning and researching in a technical university. Placed in the context of EPFL, a university specialised in engineering, the project takes a new approach to exploring and articulating the practice-knowledge of dance improvisers in relation to the needs of scientists, students and educators in higher education. As such this artistic research situates itself right at the heart of the critical discourses around the dichotomies of practice/theory, art/science, body/mind, action/reflection, as well as the divide between object and subject in research processes. The sensing body, reflection in action, and play are the practical themes of the project.

My artistic research project is part of the ASCOPET research (Les arts de la scène comme outil pédagogique dans l’enseignement tertiaire), a collaboration between Prof. Simon Henein, EPFL and Prof. Laure Kloetzer, University of Neuchatel (Unine). In June 2019 we held the first international ASCOPET symposium on higher education learning through performance practices on the EPFL campus. The event offered an opportunity for an international exchange on applying performing arts and improvisation methods to higher education.

What do I teach (in 2019)?

My teaching deals mainly with dance, improvisation, performance, the body in different contexts, artistic research methods, or topics such as such as dance & age(ing) or improvisation & engineering, which developed out of my own artistic research.

In which formats do I teach?
– Workshops / Classes = practice oriented, limited time for verbal interaction
– Seminars = mix of input, practical exploration, group reflections/discussion
– Supervising / Coaching = one to one work, content focus tailored to supervisee
– Lecture Performances = performances aiming at knowledge production/dissemination, therefore therefore including a substantial amount of verbalizing

Workshops / Classes
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

Photo Eugene Titov, contact workshop Dancing with Others – Dancing for Others, Bucharest Contact Festival 2017

Seminars
These are thematic seminars that combine practical and theoretical inputs and explorations with the participants. Themes are
– artistic research
– improvisation as exploration, as performance, as research
– showing process on stage, staging your work (e.g. “bad performing for shy artists”)
– dance & age(ing) (e.g. “undoing age appropriateness”)
­
Supervising / Coaching
I started to support individuals and groups in developing their respective artistic research practices. Currently I am supervising some MFA students, helping them the find, find back, not loose their very unique paths through the jungle of art and academia., I’m sharing inputs, tools and strategies from dance, theatre, artistic research and from my personal experience with collaborative artistic practice. I’m supporting processes of performance making

Lecture Performances
I keep developing the hybrid format of lecture performance.
I’m staging, dancing and discussing specific themes often with invited guests and/or the audience – these lectures often include some audience activity/participation. For past lecture performances go to „Research“ and “Salons” in the menu.

Doctor D meets Doctor V (2016)

Susanne Martin and Alex Nowitz

Premiere: July 7, 2016, at festival Improvisation Xchange Berlin – berlin arts united at Dock 11, Berlin
Duration: 60 min

An interdisciplinary dialogue between two artistic research projects, one based in dance, the other in voice/live electronics
(spoken language English)
In this three-part performance Susanne Martin and Alex Nowitz each share, explain, and perform aspects of their respective research for the other and for the audience. Susanne’s research “Dancing Age(ing)” rethinks age(ing) critically in and through improvisation practice and performance. With “The Multi-Vocal Voice” Alex traces the potentialities for the contemporary performance voice without and with technological means, i.e. live electronic instruments. Finally they enter into a duet improvisation in which they allow their ideas and modes of performing to merge, interact and possibly inspire each other.

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)

June 2012 in Gothenburg

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.”
