"ImproTime - Tatort Tanz" with  Stina Bartels

We embark on a search for new sources, act out emotions, respond to bodily stimuli and impulses that impel us into movement. This search combines principles of dance technique with movement contexts that expand our range of motion. This experiment will generate unique and personal movement, sequences and dance styles. Dynamics, energy and strength offer space for movement and dance. A variety of different musical styles and materials will provide support for improvisation. This will be a dance of inner and outer presence.

Workshop Description: "SPEED"

Today the world seems caught up in the idea of getting things done as quickly as possible. It seems there's no stopping this. Paradoxically, the more time spent on the perfection of time saving methods, the less time we have. Based on this idea, this workshop focuses on the subject "speed". The moving of material in the class combined with our personal material will be the take off. We will try to find our own movement speed, playing with different speeds and reflecting on the effects. The idea is to go in two different directions and work with extremes, fast and slow. Are we able to be faster or slower? What does it mean to work with the speed from another person? How does speed affect our brain and soul? Is speed the only possibility to reach our goals faster? We will try to find out about speed as a movement quality, as a performative element and a physical challenge for our body. In the end of the workshop the results will be shown at the studio Marameo. The workshop is open to professional dancers and strong amateurs.

'From lack of rest, our civilization is ending in a new barbarism. Never have the active, which is to say the restless, people been prized more. Therefore, one of the necessary correctives that must be applied to the character of humanity is a massive strengthening of the contemplative element'. (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Michael is teaching a dynamic and organic class to the international technical standard. He has an extensive experience of more than 15 years teaching professional dancers. For example: 4 years as rehearsal director at Staatstheater Kassel, rehearsal director as a guest at Theater Luzern and Staatstheater Oldenburg. Throughout he developed his personal way of teaching. Inaki Azpillaga and Jozef Frucek are his main influencing teachers. His classes consist of Bodywork, floorwork, standing exercises, jumps and acrobatic elements, complex combinations encompassing the entire space. Further there is room for developing ones own movement language through improvisation, partner/contact work. Although very physical there are also moments to shift the focus and pay attention to the body by releasing, using massage and relaxing exercises. Michael's class follows a clear structure never breaking the flow, systematically guiding one from the beginning to the end. One of his main goals is to involve the dancer physically as well as mentally. Last but not least he makes sure to have a dynamic way of teaching by being instructive and other times being open to the group.
