Body & Performance Practices

Body & Performance Practices – formerly known as Training & Workshops – is not only open to all local dance and performance professionals, but artists from other disciplines as well as enthusiasts and amateurs are also welcome to join. This new training concept expands the ways in which dance and performance can help us see and explore different forms of knowledge, generating a new place for contemporary artistic and methodical discourse. An active place of possibilities to experiment, analyze, research, dream, discuss, take risks, realize, construct and deconstruct.


Our January programme featuring Eva-Maria Schaller, Johanna Zachhuber, Eldad Ben Sasson, Philipp Gehmacher, Elke Van Campenhout, and Oleg Soulimenko is out now. It will be dealing with philosophical and ethical questions, with physical questions concerning speed and slowness or how to be able to attain and maintain virtuosity in dance. But above all, the programme is about the capacity of inner creativity that can be nourished through dialogue, training and research.
