Creative body-Improvisation practice / The method of the class is based on improvisation as strategy to work with images, internal states, physicality and own language of movement. It bases as well on composing instantly with moving, taking awareness of each movement´s presence in space and time. The practice conceives the body as a multisensory body that makes its surrounding part of it. The extent here expresses itself through movement, which depends on the way one draws space through perception and imagination. The participants have the opportunity to approach and practice the art of composing at the moment. A work whose technique and tools are not based on the aesthetic, but on the kinesthetic and that deepens the relationship of the creative being with our body / mind.

The practice sharps skills such as:
Awareness of what is done while improvising
Listening and tuning with the others
Practice and exchange of the dynamics of receiving / sending, leading/ following, being
active/ passive, among others
Sense of timing / rhythm / internal and external spaces
Understanding of beginnings and endings of individual and collective sentences
Use of intuition, imagination and perception as tools of emerging movement material
Developing a personal and the collective creative body


Jenny Ocampo is choreographer and dancer based in Berlin. She was born in Cali, Colombia, where she began her professional dance studies. In 2000, she moved to Germany, where she received her dance degree at the Folkwang, University of Arts, in Essen in 2004. During this period she was chosen by the choreographer Pina Bausch to dance her icon pieces Sacre du Printemps and Tannhäuser. From 2004 until 2009, she worked as solo dancer for the Dance Theater Company at the State Theater in Münster. Since 2009, she has worked independently, doing her own projects and also in collaboration with other artists and theaters in Germany and South America. In 2015, together with the choreographer Marcela Ruiz Quintero and the director Philip Gregor Grüneberg, she founded the company Hidden Tracks. They have created international productions co-produced by the Colombian and German government, performed at festivals and theatres in both countries, such as, in Germany, the Theater im Pumpenhaus in Münster, FFT Düsseldorf, Dock 11 in Berlin, LOFFT Leipzig, Zeche 1 Bochum, among others. Parallel to this collaboration, Jenny has been developing her own work. She has produced a series of works in the last years such as Mirage, a self portrait (2016), Damp Sheets (2017) and The Canvas (2017) under the label of the Expanded Being Project. Currently, she is completing her Master of Arts in Science of Dance at the Free University in Berlin. Jenny´s interest in choreography started already in her homeland, Colombia. She has produced several projects and pieces since then. Her questions and departing points for her current work have to do mostly with perception and transformation. Her method of work is based on improvisation. Expanded Being Project, is a series of works, which depart from her recent research in the field of extended perception. In this project, she investigates processes of finding new spaces in the relationship between bodies and surroundings, in which imagination and intuition as well as sensations of gravity and time, play a significant role.
