Contemporary Dance and Contact Improvisation

 

 

 

Workshop with Mareike Steffens and Marielle Gerke in Kassel

July 13 th + 14 th 2019

 

In this workshop we would like to get to know and experience our skeletal system and our bones. We use anatomy as point of departure for solo movements, Instant Composition and Contact Improvisation.

 

Our skeletal system gives our body its form and structure. The bones help our body weight to be supported against gravity and to be move around in space. Our joints – the space between the bones – enable us to move the bones in relationship to each other and to shape and re-shape our form at any time.

 

How do we contact our bones? Which structure and form do we embody through the bones? How do we change this structure and form effortlessly and move it through space and time?

 

Previous experiences in Contact Improvisation or Contemporary Dance helpful, but not necessary.
