diving into the unknown

This workshop is addressed to artists who want to deepen their knowledge on how we can discover genuine movement and how this personal kinetic material can be used later in a compositional procedure. We will focus on the relationship between text, image, and body, employing a combination of techniques and exercises, triggering automatic physical movements and spontaneous reactions. Under circumstances of isolation and using a distinctive set of dynamics, we will investigate the notions of time, space, and the form and style of movement, focusing on the ways in which bodies interact, and also tackling group dynamics. We will explore a more individual style of movement, while also investigating the type of dramaturgy that is brought to the surface whenever the body is allowed to speak for itself. Participants are required to bring their own pairs of trainers and their own knee pads.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2023. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.
