Sounddance Festival is rapidly approaching! I am glad to invite you to Dock 11, where a nice collection of Berlin-based artists are going to show their recent works that relate to or are instant composition works. The festival organised by Jenny Haack will take place from the 20th of July. Both weeks there will be different performances each night, Thursday through Sunday. I am doing the technical direction of the festival and will be the lighting designer and technician for some of the performances too, alongside with Aurora Rodriguez and Asier Solana.
Another good news for performing artists: the dates of the next workshop ‘Performing Space’ has clarified!
The workshop will be October 2-6, each day between 14-17h at Studio Laborgras in Kreuzberg.
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.
April 8 and 9 2017 (Saturday and Sunday) 11:00-15:00. Dock 11

I am excited to invite you to my new performance, Stranger. It will take place 23-26th of February at Dock11 theater. If you want to see the participants, check out the indiegogo campaign we have launched!
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.
When: 24-28. October 2016 / 14-17h
Where: Studio laborgras / Paul-Lincke-Ufer 44A 10999 Berlin
