Performing: SPACE Emotional space - sonic space - architectural space

Performing: SPACE Emotional space - sonic space - architectural space


This 4 days workshop is analysing instant composition and different spacial aspects of a performance. Through improvisation-based tasks, different strategies are offered for perceiving and interpreting space. 

With live music and the help of an overhead projector we decompose scenes of improvisational tasks until we find the space issue, and reverse: provide tools with the space aspect to perform in a new state of wholeness.
The work is aimed to develop a flow of contextual awareness through sonic and visual tasks. Our workshop is helpful for professional dancers in analysing one’s own practice and finding new performing strategies.


Dates: 16th-19th November 15, 10 am - 3 pm
Place: DOCK 11, Kastanienallee 79, 10435 Berlin, Saal 3 (2. yard, groundfloor)
