Natsuko Tezuka: Body Map – Journey into the Inside

Observe your body and have it resonate within a stream of consciousness to make you dance. Instead of doing dance you can become dance. Dance will dance you. Stand still and do the impossible. Starting from an exploration of physicality, feeling and spontaneous movements, let’s make a body map as an observation of the inside of your body and take a journey through it. You will find out what kinds of energy are lurking deep inside of the body to come out as movements that happen instead of being made.

Sebastian Matthias: Participatory Working – Strategies for the Recognition of a Differentiated Knowledge

You have the knowledge. What do you do with it? Pass it on! Considering the concept of sharing knowledge (which is a common ground in artistic work for decades) instead of teaching to unknowing students might change the approach and the contact between teachers and students.
No one can exactly understand the physical experience of another person. Especially in dance, where the subjective body is at the center, it seems to be particularly relevant to engage in collaborative ways of working. Dancers and performers in choreographic processes depend on their own decisions in and with the body. How can a learning practice reflect these needs?

In this workshop, participatory research methods are put up for discussion and questioned about their implicit techniques, role models, body images in order to convey a perspective on how practical, non-institutionalized knowledge can be used. Thus, a cognitive distancing towards well-rehearsed routines, forms of interaction and power relations should be made possible in order to question established understandings and strategies and to be able to rethink dance education.

Moderation: Sebastian Matthias

Do-Shop #5 (students only)

Bea Carolina Remark / Raymond Hilbert: Dancing Together

How do dance and inclusion fit together? For a long time dance has not been thought as an inclusive art form. That it can be one has been proven by the National Youth Ballet (NYB), among others, for many years in numerous collaborations with institutions whose field of activity lies outside the art world. The Do-Shop directors Raymond Hilbert, Ballet Master of the NYB, and dance creator Bea Carolina Remark invite you to freely investigate your individual repertoire of movements and to develop it into a common language of dance and movement by exploring how dance can be experienced by everybody. The do-shop participants will take part in the inclusive work of the National Youth Ballet and of Bea Carolina Remark, both observing and participating. Let’s enjoy dancing together!

Do-Shop #6 (students only)

Zwoisy Maers-Clarke: Bodies + Politics

In this workshop, we will explore, de-construct, and discuss our politics. These explorations, de-constructions, and discussions will take place in the space between speech and movement. We will start with the naming of some of the political topics and ideas that are on our minds. Then from there, we go into dance improvisation exercises (taken from Zwoisy‘s artistic practice) that draw a bridge between the verbal and movement languages. While we explore how socio-political messages inhabit our bodies daily and how our bodies express them, we will actively listen to one another. In these moments and beyond, we can give support, peaceful resistance, and solidarity to one another. In part of this workshop, touch will be used; physical boundaries will be self-directed and the responsibility of respecting these boundaries will be shared by all.

Omar Rajeh: MaQaM – Spaces of Inspiration | The Plurality of the Body

Instead of looking at the body as one entity with one centre, the body represents an interactive relationship of ‘bodies’ giving it its dynamics, presence, and meaning. It focuses on centres of dynamics that could be seen as centres of attention and communication. Creating spaces of inspiration that are framed, mutated, and dissolved in time, is a central concept of this approach. The MaqaM aims to introduce a broader concept of choreography and dance based on inner impulses of presence rather than pure physical forms. Movement becomes an urgency for being and for the generation of meaning rather than for showing forms and exhibiting representations.

Eylül Fidan Akinci: Dance Herstories

What do we think of when we talk about “the” dance history? Whose bodies and movements does this history glorify, and whose does it ignore? Who writes this history, what is their profit in its retellings? Such questions motivate this do-shop. We will first make explicit our preconceptions and accepted narrative of dance history. Then, we will see how we have been locating ourselves in it. Finally, we will devise some criteria for feminist, anti-colonialist, post-humanist routes of telling the multiple stories of dance, and see what kind of motions, shapes, anatomies they might afford to our bodies today and in the future. To achieve these goals, we will practice our improvised writing as well as improvised moving skills.

Do-Shop #3 (students only)

Boy Henry & Boy Bernd / Brontez Purnell: DI whY?

The workshop is about Punk and the DiY spirit that goes along with it in reference to making music yourself, write about music yourself, release music yourself, organize concerts yourself and how this affects your creativity. During the workshop we will explore how the DiY spirit can be translated to other art forms than music (eg. dance).

In the physical part Brontez Purnell will offer a warm up and movement across the floor alongside a structured improv jam dealing with concepts of both negative and positive space, contact and anti-contact and how to build chapters in a dance score using scripting techniques in the class. There will be live accompaniment.
In this movement/word Do-Shop we will explore the interface of Brontez’s first two artistic loves–dance and writing. In moving through the world of dance–a body based practice that often forgoes the use of speech–the mode
of physical expression is emotive–to express with gesture where words may fail. We will explore/investigate/deconstruct the inescapable world of movement and the written word. Please bring a laptop and pen and prepare to record on your smartphone.

Tim Reuscher: Zine

Comic, fanzine etc. have their own way of storytelling. Zines are easily made and distributed. Tim Reuscher from NACHLADEN in Hamburg will give a lecture about the history of zine and a practical introduction to the production of zines. The Do-Shops #2: history / herstory of dance and #3 DI whY? make use of that technique to enrich their process.

Do-Shop #4 (students only)

Claire Cunningham: Visibility is no Choice

Claire Cunningham’s work is often rooted in the study and use/misuse of her crutches and the exploration of the potential of her own specific physicality with a conscious rejection of traditional dance techniques (developed for non-disabled bodies). In her live and artistic career, she was always visible due to her disability, she says. This Do-Shop is about the choice to be visible on and off stage.
