Just do it
+++ During the lockdown, this workshop is aimed at dance and performance professionals (advanced level). In order to participate, the 2,5G rule applies: vaccinated, recovered or PCR-tested. +++
With the open-level format we address everyone interested with or without special knowledge. A special highlight of this season is the workshop with the Vienna-based Russian choreographer Oleg Soulimenko, where you can gain an insight into the unusual creative process of an already established artist who has gained experience in a wide range of physical techniques, from improvisation in Moscow to Butoh in Japan and numerous other body practices.
“Composition, communication and performing are the subjects of our workshop. We will work with personal movement languages in order to articulate and enrich them. We will experiment with basic things to create compositions by using space, time, and interaction. Simplicity of movement, dance, gesture, stillness, our voice, objects,… – all of these are our tools to experiment and to create different various forms in which the sensations of the body lead to compositions. Through observation and exploration of our senses we will respond to one another’s material, thus altering the perception and understanding of the original patterns. We will improvise our own improvisations which is inspired by and related to our life experience and our senses. Presence and various states will play important roles in the workshop. We will confront the energy of fragile states and powerful physical dynamic. And most certainly something we cannot predict, something unknown will happen to us.” – Oleg Soulimenko
