Due to illness Sabine Parzer is unable to hold the training Riding the bones of a tiger scheduled for this week. We are delighted to offer Centre – Periphery – Centre: Technique with Daphna Horenczyk from 23 till 26 April instead.
The class aims to understand the function of technique as a study and practice, to make the body available and adaptable to the endless range of possible situations. Having this understanding, we will experience different elements taken from floorwork principles, partnering, martial arts and rock climbing.
We will experience a practice (with or without a given form) of releasing without collapsing, developing new coordination, stamina, creativity and alertness in dance. We will find functionality in the body and ways to use its maximum potential within the movement. We will find the joy of dancing using physical forces, producing and recycling energy.
born in Israel in 1987, she graduated as a dance major from Ironi Alef High School in Tel Aviv. Between 2006 and 2008 Horenczyk studied in the professional dance training programme at Kibbutz Gaaton. She worked as a freelance dancer, rehearsal director and movement instructor for theatre in Israel. In 2009 Horenczyk moved to Austria to study at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) both in the performance and choreography programmes.
During her studies in Salzburg, she managed to create three pieces which toured in Israel and Europe and also worked as a rehearsal director. Her works were shown at festivals such as Machol Shalem, Intimadance, Tmuna Festival (IL), No Ballet (GR), MAAT (PL), among others. Horenczyk is currently based in Vienna.
