12 – 14 April 2024 in Bern
Improvisation as Art: Making Happen / Letting Happen

(for people with some experience in dance impro or CI, teaching language is German or English)
How and when do I intervene, initiate change, set accents within an improvisation? How and when do I let things happen, go with the flow, get changed? We will play, learn, perform in solo, duet and group constellations, sometimes with, sometimes without touch, sometimes with, sometimes without a claim to composition – but always with tasks that (further) clarify and deepen our joy and interest in improvised dance as an art form.

My teaching draws on the knowledge and sensitivity of instant composition, contact improvisation, somatic bodywork and thirty years of professional dance and stage experience.

12 – 14 July 2024 at Somatic Academy Berlin
Dance Improvisation as Art

In this workshop we further our dance and improvisation skills. We study how, when and how much we influence or guide each other while improvising as a group. We watch each other improvise and figure out what helps or hinders, inspires or confuses us in doing and seeing improvisation. We play, learn, explore in solo, duo and group constellations, sometimes with, sometimes without touch, sometimes with, sometimes without a claim to composition, but always with tasks that (further) clarify and deepen our joy and interest in improvised dance as an art form.

My teaching draws on the knowledge and sensitivity of instant composition, contact improvisation, somatic bodywork and thirty years of professional dance and stage experience.

The workshop is aimed at artists and educators in the performing arts and anyone who wants to explore dance improvisation as a stage art form. Accordingly, previous experience in dance and/or improvisation is recommended.
