IN THE ACT OF CREATING
workshop with Ewa Benesz
26-30 JULY 2013
Eremo medievale San Marco
Aidone (Enna, Sicilia)


The actor’s original practices: ritual dances and rhythms, chants and vibrating song techniques, movement and relaxing have been chosen from the oldest traditions. They awaken sensitivity and vitality; they clean perceptions and the mind  from automatic habits; they reduce into primary expression. And they learn to see and hear.

The act of creating brings the ‘mythical reality’ of life closer. Unveil the presence of another dimension of  I and another dimension of You. In the awoken attention and in contemplation nothing is indifferent. The boundary between the inner and outer becomes more transparent. I am in Unity.

I prepare my body. I learn to eliminate tensions and to discover the organic process; the body becomes ready to act. I prepare my voice. I study resonance and the vibration of sonorous expiration, in order to become the source of sound, to become sound.Truth is not definable. It can only create the conditions which allow to free, to unveil. Because when it happens, in the act of creating, I touch freedom and renewal.This is theatre in status nascendi. There are no spectators.

MOVING BEYOND #13

Feldenkrais Method - Contact Improvisation - Dance Making

Workshop with Thomas Kampe

20th - 25th AUGUST 2013


DESCRIPTION

In this workshop we will use explorations and concepts drawn from The Feldenkrais

Method® and Contact Improvisation. We will explore the use of touch, constraints

and structured problems as tools for finding ease, freedom, new patterns and

greater possibilities in our Improvised movement choices. The Feldenkrais Method®

is regarded as one of the most sophisticated and refined movement education

systems developed in the 20th century. In innovative, playful and precise ways, it

taps the intelligence of the human nervous system to produce higher levels of

function and movement ability. The Feldenkrais Method® is based on principles of

physics, biomechanics and an understanding of learning and human development.

 

LOCATION of this Workshop will be the San Marco’s Medieval Church, in the aerea of

Aidone (Enna, Sicily). The Church is located upon a hill which faces a luxuriant green

Valley. Quitness and stillness of the surronding landscape will offer an exclusive

chance of going through a unique experience.

 

FOOD - ACCOMODATION and FREE TIME

The staff will take care of the meals. People can sleep in Studio or Tent at free cost.

In the afternoon, after the class finishes, people can go and visit the surrounding

areas or just relaxing in the place of the Workshop.Musicians are pleased to bring

there instruments along so that we have the chance to play together.

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

The Workshop is open to everyone: professionals as well as those

passionate about dance and movement. No previous experience in dance or theatre is

AFROFUSION & BODY WORK

Workshop with Kepha Oiro and Benedetta Reuter

Catania, Sicily | 25 - 26 - 27 July 2012  | 6.00 p.m. - 9.00 p.m.

The workshop will center on rythms based on east african percussions, body percussions and voice sounds. We will explore sequences from different tribes of Kenya and a reflection from East African neighbours, as well as turn participants normal habits into rythms with percussion music and finally dance and dance till the body drops.

At the same time we will tune our self-perception with the help of the Alexander Technique.

Through conscious experiencing of the anatomy we will explore the body mechanics in order to enjoy more freedom in dance. A refined sensitivity for our bodies in relationship to sound and space will allow us to develop a quality of „gentle strenght“ and „powerful softness“ in the way we move.

Kepha Oiro works as Dancer, Performer, Choreographer and Director at the Dance Forum Nairobi, Kenya (http://www.danceforumnbi.com).  He also collaborates  as traditional african and contemporary dance teacher at the Tanzhaus NRW Duesseldorf (http://tanzhaus-nrw.de/trainings?object_id=2464).

 

Benedetta Reuter was born in Italy and she works as Dancer, Choreographer and Alexander Technique Teacher in Koeln, Germany (www.687performance.de and www.at-koeln.de).

The workshop will culminate in a Performance-intervention in the Urban space.
