Shifting the Eye

Performance-Projekt with Anna Nowicka

The process of dance that combines intuitive ways of creating with conscious, choreographic decisions, empowering performers to connect with their dreaming as a legible source of knowledge and the foundation for creativity.  It is a practice of an on-going becoming, moving playfully between real and imagined, between doing and observing, expanding an awareness of the endless flow of impulses, able to choose which one to follow, form and embody. By ‘shifting the eye’ simultaneously within and outside oneself, one notices the focus of attention. In following it, engaging with it and expanding it through the body, we will discover and work with the creative potential of every moment. The practice is aiming at unfolding the body into a multi-layered, ever flowing, response-able entity, available to the continuous emergence of sensations, feelings and images, curiously creating from what currently is.

Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € / Application for the project: mueller@tanzfabrik-berlin.de

Additionally you can join the open contemporary training
The class will focus on making the body open, available and responsive. We will bridge the intense physical work with imagery exercises, learning to navigate between concrete movement tasks, bodily experiences and images. The dance practice will be an in-depth exploration of basic physical principles of weight, effort, direction, time and space. From a place of deep relaxation and unfolding, participants will flow between a number of exercises working with physical, emotional and mental bodies, with the aim of broadening movement choices. This will be explored in solo/group research, and through partner/hands on work, introducing the presence of an observer.

Open training: Mo & Wed18:15- 19:45
Fee: For people joining the Performance Project: 105 € for the training period during the project / For everybody else: 10x card: 95 € / red.: 90 € / prof.: 75 €
