THE CONTACT BODY Intensive Workshop in Contact Improvisation with MARTIN KEOGHMay, 20-22, 2016 @ Tanzfabrik BerlinCOST: Early bird 180€, thereafter 200€REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.orgEVENT WEBSITE: http://contact-improvisation.net/2015/11/11/the-contact-body-ws-by-...
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:– Deepen your investigation and understanding of Contact Improvisation –
In this three-day workshop we will cultivate our individual Contact Body. You are invited to enter leisurely somatic research, dancing and discovery. With hands on work, games, the skills and thrills of the form, and the unique physicality of The Contact Body we will savor and rock the boundaries between states of allowing and mindful intention. We will focus on the pelvic bowl to become more intimately rooted in our dance and being.
What does the Contact Body look and feel like?Some Qualities:* Pliant strength* Supple and resilient* Organized and released* Limbs that move autonomously from one another* Ability to see and move into the backspace* A visceral understanding of the spiral* Breath that is felt from the ground to the marrow* An enhanced capacity for sensation and pleasure* ... (your unique qualities ...)Contact Improvisation requires a courageous willingness – but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will – those moments when we drop the reigns and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us.We will explore:* Moving from a base of sensation* Dancing with a shared central axis* Seeking ease in going off balance* Finding the spontaneous acrobatics of the form* Spending more time in nuance, disorientation, and extended follow-through* A greater capacity for sensation, risk, and pleasure“My greatest sense of accomplishment comes from seeing students increase their capacity for sensation and risk—seeing them dance less with their “ideal” and more with their partner—and the profound gratification of introducing contact improvisation to those who then realize they have found the dance form they were seeking all their lives. I attempt to teach and model that the beauty and reach of our questions, in the end, determine the beauty and reach of our lives.”..

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONScott: „My main work is as a choreographer and I rigorously investigate partnering and acrobatic movement ideas. This allows me to bring unique movement vocabulary and training to my workshops.“
We will also work with ensemble dancing. Dancing, contacting with connection and awareness of the group.
„I’d like to create an atmosphere that has more intention and group focus than a jam, but less stringent than a formal performance. We’ll develop our ensemble work and gain performance skills and resources. Contact Improvisation will be an element of our practice, an element to mix with soloing, ensemble and compositional work.“
We will take single elements (e.g. a flying skill) into scores. We will use this progression:
1) Connecting with yourself, using body sensations or images as they come up or the stories in your head. Noticing impulses to move, being able to feel your impulses, and pick which ones to follow.

Fees : 285 € + 25 € [fee & insurance]
Possibility of accomodation at Kot & Jardins
for actors, dancers, performers, directors.
An actor on stage. One camera records him. Reproject its action behind him. We can modify it, change reproduction rate, speed, direction, display mode. We can relate to it, creating a game with the myself i was a moment ago – or long before. We can intervene in real time on what’s happening on stage, playing between an actor and an avatar, played by the actor himself. We can then film-edit instantaneously what camera is filming, mixing actual record to prerecorded video loops.
Is all that puppetry? Video performance? Mime? Live cinema? All this and more.
An open lab where we’ll experiment together interactive video-theatre language, bringing our own ideas and creating desire
We’ll explore recent digital technologies born for theatre, dance, VJing and live show. We’ll learn to use powerful softwares for live events control.
We’ll experiment hardware interfaces and sensors born to interact with movements happening on the stage, aiming to create an interaction between actions and multimedia settings. We’ll discover interactive possibilities between actor, interfaces and software, to extend overall possibilities.

The form of soul - 10day intensive butoh workshop with Motimaru Dance Company,Santorini island Greece, 24th of August-2nd of September
100,000years ago, when Homo sapiens emerged on this planet, the first human art has emerged in the dark cave, where eyes cannot see. What they were seeing with the eyes of the body-mind is the depth of our unconscious. Times change, but this must be a fundamental principle of human art. Our everyday life passes, eating, working, or dancing, within a limited cage, burying rich nature within us. Educations, traditions, or even learning dance could mold various forms of cages. Free improvisation could also end up struggling in the same cage. But when we observe forests carefully, so many varieties of forms and qualities of plants, flowers, stones, winds, and sounds astonish us. This workshop is an invitation for diving into the unknown forest of our body-mind, discovering unlimited movements and qualities within us, and transforming the personal journey into universal poems.
