This training runs from 9 April till 11 June 2018.
This is an invitation to radically unite the experience of dancing with writing. We will explore various ways of combining verbal thinking with intensities, feelings and underlying thoughts that emerge from the sensitivity of our dancing bodies, and we will look into feelings by means of scribbling and poetic actions. We will play with translations and examine the “materiality of writing” according to Derrida: “All that inscribes itself is writing.” In that sense, the term “writing” goes beyond verbal language and makes contact with the environment and the conditions in which a person or a thing exists. Which in turn makes us aware of the space and the possibility to design a landscape together. By listening, moving and writing we engage with each other, look into our dreams and visions and develop our co-existences.
is a performer, choreographer and author. Various projects of her deal with the stories the body wants to tell, and with dance as a form of communication that goes beyond the verbal. In various artistic and socio-political projects (mixed abilities, intercultural collaboration, basic income dance, dementia) she explores dance in relation to the poetic potentials of everyday conditions and behaviour. Since 2016 she has been a certified practitioner in systemic and integrative movement study (SIB®). She holds individual sessions and combines this specific movement approach with Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga and other somatic methodologies she uses in her movement and dance practice and teaching.
She studied at the School for New Dance Development at the University of Amsterdam some time ago. Since then she has developed performance projects in Austria and abroad, and has worked as a performer with international choreographers and artists such as Milli Bitterli, Philipp Gehmacher, Jeroen Peeters, Vera Mantero and many others. She is an associate artist in the artists’ platform Im_flieger. She has been working closely with visual artist Jack Hauser since 2005. Together they create performances and interventions in theatres, museums and galleries.
