This workshop is to encourage dancers, choreographers and performers to bring their practice with real time performance towards a meaningful collaboration with light designer. Real time performance is a challenging art-form. When it is dealt with sincerely, inclusive of light design, real time performance elevates the live theater to it’s highest potential. This demands from the performers a high level of openness and collaborative capabilities, and an increased capability of decision-making. Such high exposure of presence cannot be accompanied with a mediocre staging. It is necessary to include stage lighting as a potent and equal element of play. This workshop will include discussions with Katie Duck and myself about language and technical options with light design, alongside session work in the theater with light design. In these sessions, can take opportunity to place our practice viewing from the public view point, sitting with me on the board and in physical creations with light in the theater space. Feedback and discussions will revolve around shifts, effects and tension that are interactive between light, body, performance.

This five-days practical workshop provides a tool to deal with the multimedia aspect of dance and movement theatre conceptually, and in realisation of a piece. During the week, the performing space will be examined through creative movement tasks, with special attention to how many ways the use of light and music can be invested to the advantage of a creation of set or improvisative performances. The compositional focus of the work makes the deep analysis of the architectural, sonic and emotional aspects of space possible. The awareness from this study can be then applied in one’s own performing practices.
The workshop closes with an informal showing at Studio laborgras.

From the 16th to the 19th of November, Every day between 10h and 15h I give a workshop at Dock 11 Berlin for professional dancers! The topic is the uses of space. With the help of the music and sonic perspective of Gabor Csongradi, and overhead projection in space, we provide a chance, tools and moderation for the analysis of the performing space. The speciality of this workshop is that it processes the space-issue from another perspective than the one of the movers’. This work enhances the performers’ presence, and compex compositional awareness.
This 4 days workshop is analyzing instant composition and difference spacial aspects of performance. Through improvisation-based tasks, different strategies of perceiving and interpreting the space are offered.
The workshop teaches to use the body as an expressive tool of thoughts.
Technical preparation of the body and building a relation with the surrounding space, analyzing through improvisation tasks, the student can broaden his or her fields of integrity in artistic self-expression.
