Cool Down and Feedback

After a packed, intense week, farewells are imminent. To shape this as a common experience, the Biennale has planned a last, reflexive session on Sunday morning. The start will be a physical cool down at 10:00 am, headed by the choreographer Victoria Hauke. In order to be able to review all events of the past week, the body needs to be awakened, which is what good dancers do. This will occur in the big group of all Biennale participants. Victoria Hauke’s roots in dance are based on release techniques, Tai Chi Chuan, Qi-Gong and yoga; she will use these to enrichen the cool-down session.

In a discussion after the session, all participants will look into the future and imagine what terms and conditions might characterize a network meeting for up-and-coming generations of dancers.

Biennale Hang Out

The Biennale will be an exciting but intensive week of learning and training. We want to make sure however that there is also plenty of time to relax and socialize between workshops. The Biennale Hang Outs will give you the perfect excuse to blow off some steam over a few drinks and, maybe, some more dancing with your fellow participants. Soundtrack will be provided by DJs yung_womb (Thursday) and David Lenk (Friday).

Excursion

ARCHIVE JOHN NEUMEIER


During the Biennale, the participants can visit the archive of the Foundation John Neumeier.
John Neumeier‘s dance and ballet collections, accumulated over a period of decades, form a unique amalgamation of an art collection, a library and an archive that is renowned in academic circles around the world. The function and aim of the Foundation is to preserve and portray the history of ballet through words and images, documents and objects and to present them together with the catalogue of John Neumeier‘s work in a comprehensible and tangible way within a sympathetic artistic environment.
The Foundation John Neumeier was founded on February 23 of 2006. It represents in a sense a »third pillar« of John Neumeier‘s artistic activities in Hamburg – a place designed for dance studies and the research, documentation and presentation of dance – together with the Hamburg State Opera, the performance venue of John Neumeier‘s ballets and the Ballet Centre Hamburg John Neumeier, where the ballets are created and the dancers learn their craft.
