Accompanying the performance WILD HORSE RUN @ Toihaus Salzburg [10/11 February] Andrea Hackl will hold a 2 day dance intensive.
INTERPLAY DANCE INTENSIVE is a lab for professional dancers and offers a playground to experiment, to challenge and, hopefully, surprise ourselves. Though always connected to and embedded in the space around us, our work will travel from a more internal, somatic towards a more outer and compositional focus.
Both days of the workshop will consist of two parts..
MASTERCLASS AND TECHNICAL WARM UP
(see more info below)
In this work we will activate & fine tune our body and perception.
We will go for an energetic warm up and focus on technical work as well as physical & movement principles.
Utilizing contemporary technique (working on the floor and/or standing) and methods of body work as e.g.: Yoga, we will put an emphasize on the use of weight and momentum.
PART # 2
COMPOSITION / IMPROVISATION WORKSHOP
– using principles from the morning to work to create material and go for a co-creative dialogue with the other dancers and the space and music around us.
– working with material, the theme and choreographic tasks relating to the performance WILD HORSE RUN.
ABOUT THE MASTERCLASS:
“My class is very physical and offers a playground to challenge and hopefully surprise ourselves. Movement, be it floor work or standing material, is approached as directing and streaming an energetic flow, respecting a natural trajectory and alignment. This allows us to be energetic and, as well, to gain speed, if so wished, in the most enjoyable, efficient, organic as well as healthy way – be it in minimal or expanded movements flying through and eating the space.
As much as I love the clarity of lines, my work is never about creating “shapes”. It focuses on weight and the stream of breath as generators of movement; on how to utilize these in an ongoing interplay between release, recovery and a conscious act of directing. In this work, I wish to offer a set framework to explore ways to activate and fully reconnect to our agile and powerful body.”
