When is a body alive? The human body as sculpture – embracing the idea of presence and absence.                Sculptures are bodies. As a viewer, you project ‘life’ into the statues contextualising yourself and history.
untitled explores the notion of presence and absence in the contrast with the living/moving bodies and the unliving/standing sculptures. Where is the body immediate, where has it departed?

an exploration into performance

Sharing on Friday, December 9th at 20.15h
Open rehearsal, work-in-progress

Can we translate our daily, mundane life, how we connect, listen and
relate to each other into a creative process through movement?
As opposed to the idea of economical optimisation, dance works with
what is in the moment.
Looking at both the mundane and the odd, fractions of everyday actions,
continual compositions of new situations arise.

Idea and direction:  Patricia Woltmann

Performers:  Astrid Hansen, Carsten Horn, Elena Mune Cobacho, J.K. Langford, Jessica Fischer,
Jorge Chamorro, Marett Klahn, Raquel Vazquez, Signe Emilie Tveskov, Simikka Hansen,

Professional Dance Class

Allowing for connection: Moving through and into space

November 7th – 10th  2016

For Professional Dancers
In this training we learn to apply our intuitive knowledge.
A fundamental aspect is the use of breath with focus on the spine in
relation to gravity. Aiming for awareness and connection to one ́s inner
body, the class starts with the focal point of grounding, using exercises from
Klein Technique and Yoga. As movement evolves in more complex patterns,
participants explore the interplay between the qualities of time/weight/flow and
elasticity in the body.
We allow for a buoyant transmission of movement into outer space.
This class can facilitate a space for individual vision, play and collective experience.

9th October 2016

This research workshop examines the connection between dancing and writing.
We will dance and write, using what comes into mind, heart and body.
We will playfully explore the idea of “language” through movement and text.
Write your own words like a rough sketch, a single word etc. and dance it.
Search and find your own voice. Both verbal/written language and movement are
fundamental forms of expression.
Movement, the body, and text communicate in different ways, sometimes they
directly influence each other, sometimes they differ from each other.
With curiosity and humour we try out together various ways of
communication, whilst enjoying the moment of dancing.
We can discover how meaning is made and changed, from sense to non-sense
to sense..
