Applied Dance Dramaturgy – A Workshop on the Usefullness of Dance Dramaturgy in Choreographic Practices 10-12 maj

In the field of dance, dramaturgy is still a relatively new discipline and a new profession, which is therefore still viewed with curiosity and suspicion. All too often one wonders what dramaturgy actually is. But instead of losing ourselves in endless attempts at definition, we will – in this intense theory-practical Workshop – concentrate more on what dramaturgy can actually do, both for choreographers and for dance as such.

We will take a closer look into various dramaturgical practices. Such as focussing on methods that can help to concretize and contextualize artistic ideas, for example for project proposals or program texts, but also for collaboration within the artistic team. However, we will also examine the content and dynamics of some dance pieces as case studies and thus fathom the significance of dramaturgy as a choreographic tool in dance.

This workshop is open for those who did not have the opportunity to join in last November as well as for participants of last year’s introductory workshop. Together we will refresh our knowledge and deepen it in different exercises and case studies.

 Thomas Schaupp is a free-lancing dance dramaturg based in Berlin. He is collaborating with several international choreographers, currently with Anne-Mareike Hess, Janne-Camilla Lyster, Camille Mutel and Stian Danielsen. As a mentor and advisor for young choreographers he collaborates with institutions such as Dansearena Nord in Hammerfest and KHIO in Oslo. Thomas is a guest teacher at the Inter-University Centre for Dance in Berlin and facilitates workshops on dance-dramaturgy in choreographic centres across Europe. In collaboration with Ibsen International and Goethe Institut Beijing he also co-curates a Cultural Exchange Program on Dance Dramaturgy in China.

När: fredag 10 maj kl. 13.00-17.00 lördag 11 maj kl. 10.00-18.00 och söndag 12 maj kl. 11.00-15.00

The Act of Listening

Improvisation weekend with Asher Lev

2 – 3 mars 2019

Kulturakademin i samarbete med Dansalliansen och Danscentrum Väst

Kursbeskrivning

To be listening is to be leaning in towards meaning before interpretation arrives. This mode of attunement creates a space of potentiality in which we can zoom into the subtleties of an existing sensorial input. To listen is therefore to be inspired by what one hears.

Kursupplägg

”After years of improvising as a dancer in the Batsheva Ensemble Dance Company, I found that focusing on the sounds that naturally exist in every space, is a rich source of inspiration for movement improvisation. In this intensive workshop, we will develop an expanded concept and practice of listening which will function as our generative core for movement. We will borrow from circular breathing, sitting and walking mediation and somatic practices. We will infuse our improvisation skills with interest as we pass through alternative modes of awareness, visit various physical states and improve our motor skills by the excess of attention given to subtleties of dynamic body sensations. By listening we will connect to an authentic experience of improvisation and movement.

We begin from still meditative positions that sustain subtle concentration and slowly start reacting to the sounds that exist in the room. We will give more space to what we hear, rather than what we see. Slowly but surely, the listening practice becomes more dynamic to the point in which we can move swiftly, shake vigorously, extend our bodies far into the space, cut across the floor and even work on the limits of our own stamina. We will be making quicker decisions that are more attuned to the energy and atmosphere of the space. We will be able to work on alternative configurations of the body’s balance and alignment. We will gain a different understanding about continuous and fluid movement. Finally, we will become more sensitive to vibrations and resonance that our bodies share with the sonorous spaces we are in.”

Intuition in Action

Workshop with Stephen Rappaport

Kulturakademin in cooperation with Dansalliansen och Danscentrum Väst

Description

”The workshop offers a framework designed for participants to experience, articulate and expand their artistic voices. I have found involvement in a variety of creative processes facilitates an ever-deepening trust for instinct, intuition and imagination that leads to greater self-esteem, integrity and charisma.  

The objective of this workshop is for participants to build greater trust in their intuition, impulses and ideas. The work is fun, fascinating, empowering and definitely challenging. Material is generated. Tools are discovered.” Stephen Rappaport

Important! All participants should be able to attend the entire workshop and COME ON TIME. The workshop cannot begin without everyone being present.

Koreografi – dramaturgi – samtida konst med Thomas Schaupp
