Dance workshop with Lily Kiara

SRT was developed by Joan Skinner (1924-2021) and aims to achieve greater ease in dance, dynamic alignment, refined attunement with our body and imagination. There is an ongoing fine-tuning as we consciously venture into unknown creative territories. By listening within, we allow ourselves to get in touch with our inner body and connect with something bigger than ourselves. Embodied listening, inner spaces, presence, dynamic stillness, softening and allowing are some of the key practice areas in Skinner Releasing, alongside letting go, that support new routines. Softening supports the release of power through efficiency and responsiveness. Allowing encourages listening. In this way we can become more available. In technical work and in creating dances, guidance and allowing are closely related, as are stillness and action, receptivity and wildness. Lily Kiara teaches classes and workshops in Skinner Releasing Technique and Creating (Instant) Dances, sometimes together with a musician or lighting designer. She has taught throughout Europe, the USA, Australia and Indonesia and also accompanies artists in their process.

The Joy of the Unknown - inspired by the Fighting Monkey Practice

Dance Workshop with Anna Rose

The workshop focused on various elements of Fighting Monkey Practice, in particular communication and partner work. Within the framework of various movement situations, we worked on listening and dealing with unpredictability. How do we coordinate ourselves internally and in relation to others in a constantly changing environment? Through the lens of Fighting Monkey Practice, we looked at how we age and how we can better prepare for the unknown. How do we recognize patterns and potential problem areas before they become injuries, and how can we recover from injuries through movement? How do we recognize and understand our imbalances in order to better respect our own structures and take a conscious and active role in our own long-term physical health? Anna Rose is an Inspire by FM ® instructor/practitioner recognized by founders Jozef Frucek and Linda Kapetanea. She is a Berlin-based dance artist and singer who hails from the Shawangunk Mountains in New York. She has worked with various choreographers and danced/choreographed in various film and television productions "Babylon Berlin", "Tár" and "The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes". Her current movement and art research focuses on the connection between struggle and dance and explores the intersections between the principles of struggle and collaboration.

The Anatomy of Voguing

Tanzworkshop mit Plenvm Moonlight Ninjadem

Vogue is a dance form that is deeply embedded in its culture and cannot be separated from it. Understanding the origins and motivations of Ballroom culture, created by queer African American and LatinX individuals, allows participants to find personal and authentic expression. The aesthetic inspirations, which are based in the fashion world, martial arts and painting, are - like dance itself - subject to constant change and inspire each other. In his classes, Plenvm shows how these influences can be combined with one's own individual body language. As a trained dancer and musician, he also incorporates conditioning and rhythm exercises into his lessons. Plenvm is one of the pioneers of ballroom in Austria, a father, organizer, teacher and active member of the international scene, in which he appears as a walker, commentator and judge. With EatSlayLove and Danger Class, Plenvm coordinates platforms for gatherings and performance opportunities for the Ballroom and intersectional LGBTIQ+ communities.

A workshop with Colectivo R3M

SINERGIA, where playful-improvisation-creation dynamics are generated to allow three or more bodies to touch either with physical contact, through space or even by intention. Engaging with the fact that our bodies grow possibilities when they relay on other bodies, we let ourselves be driven by the commitment in between the group, approaching to each other through dynamics of contact and partnering, but also instant composition and different impulses that we have used in our own research. As a collective of four, our philosophy believes in networking and negotiation. We trust in self building as we build with others, and the same thing as dancers and choreographers. The main ax of the workshop is that movement benefits from the particularity of each body within the group.
R3M is a costa-rican dance company founded in 2015 by Andrea Núñez Segnini, Sol Pardo Carballo, Sofía Riggioni Rojas and Michelle Sánchez Sancho.

The desire for the self

Stage presence in Instant Composition with Oliver Lange

We spend a weekend dealing with our stage personality. In Instant Composition we first of all stand on stage as ourselves. We dance, move, speak and sing as ourselves. Roles, states, worlds of feeling arise from the moment and are spontaneously taken on and absorbed by the performers. How can we present ourselves without going into theatrical exaggeration and at the same time not lapsing into the private sphere?

We will get in touch with our performance self and its individual strengths and weaknesses through various exercises from the repertoire of the performing arts. In doing so, we touch on all aspects of stage performance: dance, language and action.

Shared Levitation | Partnering-Workshop

Shared Levitation Partnering is based on the principles of action – reaction wants to liberate us from aesthetics of dance and enhances playfulness and functionality instead: an easy way to get excited again and again and to lure the inner child out. In addition, we try to eliminate prejudices regarding gender, body type, weight, and age. Anyone can be lifted and lift!
We start the class by opening our channels of awareness and connect to our partner by manipulating, testing and speculating with his/her structure and weight. A special focus in this phase is the use of our whole body doing the task, not only being limited to our hands and arms. In this first part the use of playfullness allows us to connect to our instinctive and primitive side, tuning into a shared natural flow of breath. With the help of exercises in different constellations, every time changing and adapting to a new partner and universe - we listen, follow and direct the movement as one functioning organism through space. We learn how much resistance, power and direction is needed to reach our maximum together by investigating with the given tools, and finally learning fixed Partnering material at the end of each class.
