Improvisation in Performance | Levels of attention

In these 2 classes, we approach movement from a performance perspective, focussing on parameters of space, time, duration, texture and quality.
Intuition, a sense of play and our compositional mind as a guide will lead us in our dances; drawing our awareness on following or shifting our attention from inner to outer input and stimulus in sound and movement.

In den 2 Sessions thematisieren wir Improvisation in Performance entlang der Gegebenheiten von Raum, Zeit, Dauer und Bewegungsmodus.
Intuition, Neugier und ein spielerischer Sinn für Bewegung unterstützen unser kompositorisches Gespür im Tanz und öffnen die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten, kompositorische Entscheidungen schnell und im Moment zu treffen.
Unsere Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich nach innen und außen.

Ingo Reulecke

The focus of the classes is to prime the mind and body so that they can function smoothly together to their full potential through dance, language and sound, and then composing with these performative aspects in time and space. We will work as a group with real-time composition, which involves shared responsibility and a great level of consciousness and awareness. Our attention needs to be refocused time and time again, connected to our listening in the widest sense of the word. I believe that awareness of ourselves, the movement of our partner or the group is an essential capacity and quality in improvisation. We will take this topic further by means of scores in which we watch and are being watched. This approach offers a wonderful tool to dance and perform without losing oneself. As we work with these performance tools in a relaxed atmoshere we will be furthering our individual qualities while at the same time developing the relationship with our partner and the group. Most of the time are musicians accompanying the process.

The art of walking - from walking to dancing and dancing while walking

“Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be
walking in a garden to know it.” Rumi

The art of walking
Walking is the most natural thing we do, almost as natural as breathing.
A well practiced body action, since the beginning of one’s life.
No walking is ever the same as the other.
How someone walks is as unique as their fingerprints
Walking is an imprint of one’s physical posture, condition, and emotional state
There are lots of Somatic Techniques that use the
Gait (a person’s manner of walking)
as a tool for diagnosis of physical or psychological ailments
In our research, we revisit walking,
we get connected with our unique imprint through
Conscious walk, breaking down the pattern of walking
Thrust- Suspend- Transferring Weight- Arrive.
Using imagery and skeletal understanding.
Walking alone and in groups as a tool of communication.
Meditating while we do moving Qigong (a slow way of walking)
After all our aim is for the walking to become dancing,
and be transformed into a conscious tool of play and expression
“Dancing is like walking, only a bit more complex”

This improvisation based training offers a space to explore the multi-faceted awareness of a dancer/ performer in a holistic, playful manner. A physical warm-up leads us into an exploration of movement qualities, dynamics, interaction and listening through individual research, group work and partnering. The work invites us to inhabit and to challenge our personal, authentic qualities, gradually building towards instant composition, little “stories” in space, which we will participate and observe. All these tasks serve as instruments to reach a certain field where our personal presence, with its own specific language, is engaged and allowed to express itself.


Collective ONE: THIRD explores the most natural form of human communication in front of audiences and ourselves - a laboratory of real life. We are a group of professional dancers from a diverse array of countries and cultural backgrounds.
Through our work we want to share this diversity and exchange our research on own individual movement, through one common language: instant composition. We try to listen to an instinctive voice that leads us to connect with ourselves and then to others.
Every new context hides a variety of new constellations, vibes and flavours of life. The Moments that arise from these constellations we share in front of the watching eye.
Movement is the catalyst for further movement. We react organically to one another, absorbing and transmitting energy. This connection of different bodies and textures is what unites this group, and yet our individual diversity remains.
