"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.

The workshop will be divided in 2 parts:

Part 1: 12:00 - 13:30 Profi training (open class)
Contemporary technique class:
Payatt INtransit is a contemporary movement technique that combines movement principles from the ancient Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu with Hatha yoga practices like Asana and Pranayama as well as dynamic kundalini yoga and energy work to stimulate the source of energy in our body. It trains the practitioners in a safe, organic and yet rigorous way to become more confident, soft, relaxed, flexible and powerful, training us to be quick in our reflexes, while at the same time guiding us to cultivate a constant inner calm.

Part 2: 14:00 - 16:00 Going deeper
The focus lies on learning to relax and soften while simultaneously unleashing a forceful energy as we use gravity and momentum to build up physicality. The class challenges our physical and mental limits, training the physical body to be quick, energetic, physical, while mentally we remain calm, soft and relaxed, undisturbed by the agitation of physical movement. We learn to isolate the strong physical aspect of this class from the constant calm within, enabling us to gain complete control over the movement rather that the movement controlling us, and enhancing our ability to adapt to unexpected situations and make innovative yet efficient choices, based on combining the energy from within with our physical energy and with the energy around us.
