Composition and its Tellings (fully booked)

Performance-Projekt with Maya M. Carroll

Through body, configuration, a vibrant sense of listening and awareness in space and time; this week intensive will be handling choreographies of immediate, present, real - imaginative situations. Gestures, proximity, urge and energy are included themes in the process of understanding how, when and where we act, animate, separate, relate and compose. Dedicating time to bodily wisdom through our sensorial and sensuous capacity and intelligence; guides towards physical trust and fluid motion. In the progressing of the work, we will zoom in-out and associate our dance making with the intimate and universal narratives, stories and poetry we share as performers. Creative writing will be involved in our individual and collective process, as we refine the texture, atmosphere and details of our compositions. The work aims to encourage hunger for images, associative playfulness and the ability to observe, support and empower these elements within the state of performing. It is open for dancers, musicians and actors who are interested in choreography and instant-composition, and can engage with its working-process at a professional level.

Fee: 190 € / red: 170 € / professional dancers: 150 € | Application for the project: schule@tanzfabrik-berlin.de
