Summer School 2019
WORKSHOP in collaboration with NoLimita-c-tion dance teachers
This year the No Limita-c-tions contemporary dance teachers organize three different workshops (level: intermediate/advanced), from the 20th to the 25th of August, lead by the choreographers Chisato Ohno, Chen Wei-Lee and Yasmeen Godder.
Yasmeen Godder and Tomer Damsky –Contemporary and Rep. Voice and Movement research, an introduction to movement and vocal practices developed and researched by Yasmeen Godder and Tomer Damsky in the creation process of Demonstrate Restraint. (August 20th and 23rd, h.16-18)
Chisato Ohno –Contemporary and Rep. Sessions to help dancers reconnect to the way they move. Directions are given primarily in images and the object is to cultivate one’s own way of moving through sensations. Imagery stimulates imagination and movement. Using this highly experiential language, dancers are encouraged to explore their weaknesses and break old movement habits. (August 20th h.19-20.30 and from Aug.21st to Aug.25th h.9-10.30).
Yossi Berg and Oded Graf – Contemporary and Rep. Attention will be paid to deepening one’s artistry, physicality, technical and interpretive skills/artistic personal expressiveness. We will work to expand your movement vocabulary, physicality, kinesthetic awareness, performative range, musicality and mental acuity through playful and curious atmosphere. Insight into the choreographers’ processes and movement vocabulary. (August 24th and 25th, h.16-18).
Chen Wei Lee –Contemporary and Rep. This workshop explores the idea from Chinese philosophy-Yijing, the Idea of of Change. In Yijing philosophy, change is the notion that the cosmos is an organismic process without beginning or end. As a process, the cosmos resembles a great flow in which “all of the parts of the entire cosmos belong to one organic whole” and all the parts “interact as participants in one spontaneously self-generating process.”
As such, there are three characteristics of this great flow: continuity, wholeness, and dynamism. It is continuous because it never stops in renewing itself. (August 20th and 21st, h.16-18).
This concept will be transformed into dance physicality, creating the flow from- continuity, wholeness, and dynamism into a never ending pattern based on guided improvisation and on the creativities of the participants.
