UNDERSTANDING THE MOVING BODY: CONTEMPORARY DANCE BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF KLEIN TECHNIQUE WITH BRITTA PUDELKO
Intermediate/ Advanced
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

The main focus of this dance class lies on the anatomically correct work with our instrument, the body, and integrating technical dance moves with bodywork. Not only to look at movement from the outside by copying a form or through an athletic altercation with the body, but also to find a deeper understanding for one’s body and its very individual way of moving. The aim is a free and dynamic way of moving, to become clear where the movement initiates, connections in the body and to the space, finding a way to move more efficiently. In class we concentrate on our skeletal structure to reach and start working from the deep supporting muscles of our body. This organic work with our body allows us to create a base from which we can start moving in a more expansive and intense way. My goal is to work from an integral and healthy warm up, to achieve a free and technically versed movement vocabulary. Meaning not to explore the demanding technical dancing part and the bodywork separately, but to integrate the two so as to have the possibility of recognizing all the available sources of input and pulling them together in our body.

Britta Pudelko
The focus of my work has been on movement, expression, body awareness and healing. As a dancer my path has taken me from ballet via modern dance to contemporary and improvisation. Among others, I have collaborated with Robert Poole, Bernard Baumgarten, Michael Clark and Akram Khan, and have been a member of the Achim Freyer Ensemble since 2001. As a guest teacher I worked for Sasha Waltz & Guests, HZT – Berlin, Dance Intensive Program at Tanzfabrik Berlin, BolzanoDanza and Forum Danca, Lisbon. I am also a qualified alternative health practitioner with an emphasis on the integration of body, mind and soul.

GAGA/ PEOPLE
WITH YAARA DOLEV
Open Level
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

The language of gaga originated from the belief in the ‘healing, dynamic, and ever-changing power of movement’. Gaga offers a creative framework to listen deeply to our bodies. We work with our physical sensations, in search of freedom and pleasure and to connect conscious and unconscious movement. Participants are guided through a series of multi-layered tasks with a sensitivity to who is in the room. Gaga encourages exploration between our weakness and strengths, awakens numb areas, and addresses physical habits. The classes offer a workout to investigate our form, speed, and effort while enhancing our flexibility, agility, and coordination. At the same time navigating through an array of physical qualities such as texture, delicacy, and exaggeration, culminating in a multisensory and physically challenging experience. With no mirrors or spectators, comfortable clothes, accompanied by music there is an air of non-judgmental exploration.

Yaara Dolev is an Israeli choreographer, performer, and teacher. Her professional dance career began at the age of 17 with several projects. At the age of 19, she joined the ‘Batsheva Ensemble’ led by Ohad Naharin, choreographer and creator of Gaga movement method. She followed her own artistic vision, forming a dance company with her partner Amit Goldenberg, performing, teaching, giving workshops, and cooperating with other choreographers and artists from different fields.

CONTEMPORARY WITH HEIDI WEISS
Intermediate/ Advanced
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

Heidi Weiss teaches a dynamic contemporary technique class with strong roots in modern dance. The class starts with basic yoga poses which focus on breath and clarity, and continues with a series of moving sequences that create length and volume in the body. The dancers are encouraged to take risks by testing physical and spacial boundaries, through a fusion of fluidity and groundedness. Everything culminates into a longer, dynamic choreography with an emphasis on musicality.

Heidi Weiss is a dancer, choreogra­pher and teacher living and working in Germany since 1996. She has taught throughout the EU and also in the USA and Asia. She works together with Jennifer Mann.

CREATIVE MOVEMENT RESEARCH
WITH ALESSANDRO MARZOTTO LEVY
Open Level
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

I have been working for the past 7 years at constructing structures in which a group can work together starting from a clear source and with a direct intention. Starting from a point of research, we will choose how and with which tools we will direct our research. I would like to be the facilitator of this workshop rather than the leader. Bring your tools and I’m sure that you will go home with more than you came with.

Alessandro Marzotto Levy has co-directed Impermanence Dance Theatre in Bristol, and has been developing his own projects across Europe for the past 8 years. With an interest in sustainability and holistic practices related to the body, his way of creating reflects the current socio-political state in which we all seem to be slightly lost in. Alessandro hopes to create spaces in which our bodies can relate gently with our minds. It all comes down to being creative and to dive into our imagination.

RESEARCH WORKSHOP
WITH YAEL CIBULSKI
Advanced
150/130€ (Early Bird, until may 17th)

In search of structural patterns that promote ease of movement, the workshop is devoted to awaken the body and mind awareness, finding skeletal support for explosive movement, examining relationships between gravity and space, using imagery and the imagination in movement initiation, and acknowledging the interplay of physicality, emotion and intellect.  We will start with an efficient Feldenkrais class, in which in every day of the workshop we focus on another body part. When people come to experience an enlarged set of options, they become more creative and resourceful, and develop reactions of a more spontaneous and precise nature.

Yael Cibulski holds a bachelor’s degree in dance from the Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2007-2011), and is a former member of the Vertigo Dance Company in Israel (2011-2015). She currently works as a freelance dancer, teacher, independent dance-maker and as a certified Feldenkrais® practitioner.

LIGHTNESS OF MOVEMENT – CONTEMPORARY DANCE FLOOR WORK TECHNIQUE
WITH MICHAEL LANGENECKERT
Intermediate
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

Breath, swing, momentum, rebound and the possibility of letting go of unnecessary tension, will help us to create movement flow through space. Focusing on floor work technique, we will learn to direct the body easily through all levels. We gather energy and find articulation in our body, bringing it into phrases across the floor as well as throughout space. Lightness in the body and clarity in the movement are the main goals of this workshop.

Michael Langeneckert works as freelance choreographer, teacher and dancer, and lives in Freiburg, Germany. He currently does project work and choreography for his new label moving orchestra in Freiburg, as well as being a guest choreographer for the students of SEAD in Salzburg and in many international theaters. He teaches internationally throughout Europe and has worked as a rehearsal director and dancer for Johannes Wieland, Sharon Eyal, Guy Nader and Maria Campos, Guy Weizman and Roni Haver, Rui Horta, Martin Stiefermann, Susanne Linke and many others.

DIVING IN: CONTACT TRAINING
WITH ANDREW WASS
Open Level (CI Experience recommended)

M.A.D Mix – THE REALITY OF DUALITY
WITH KELVIN O. HARDY
Open Level (CI Experience recommended)
55/50€ (Early Bird, until may 17th), Drop-In 13€

In New York many Broadway musicals and famous stage choreographies started with a series of developmental workshops, separate steps along the way to creation.
The M.A.D Mix Workshop is the first step of a two-step process to create an original piece for the Performance Project in 2019. The steps can be enjoyed separately or in tandem. The training for the workshop consists of diverse training systems, guided and structured improvisation; as well as upgrades in the M.A.D. Mix repertoire. The M.A.D Mix or Modern American Dance Mix is an intensive training that summarizes traditional modern dance techniques and mixes them functionally with contemporary styles. The aforementioned elements will be synthesized with the objective of fashioning a versatile and creative dance environment for participants who enjoy expressing themselves deeply in new, nuanced and meaningful ways. This approach will be helpful in the choreographic explorations of this year’s theme: the polarities of human nature existing in all of us.

Kelvin O. Hardy grew up in New York where he received a diverse and qualitative dance education. He performed, primarily as soloist, with several modern dance companies in New York and Philadelphia. He is presently teaching contemporary modern dance and improvisation at the State Ballet School/ Staatliche Ballettschule in Berlin and Modern American Dance Mix at marameo. Based in Berlin, he has taught and choreographed internationally for many years in various techniques and styles; in many prominent professional dance institutions.
