Gaga Dance Workshop

with Kasia Kizior

06.04 & 07.04.2024 (exact times below)

Protagon Kulturgelände

About the Workshop:
Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, agility, and skills including coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and the imagination.
The classes offer a workout that investigates form, speed, and effort while traversing additional spectrums such as those between soft and thick textures, delicacy and explosive power, and understatement and being over the top. Participants awaken numb areas, increase their awareness of habits, and improve their efficiency of movement inside multilayered tasks, and they are encouraged to connect to pleasure inside moments of effort. 

A
bout Gaga/people:
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.

Dive deep into Improv: Alphonse and the magic box

with Solal Mazet (antagon theaterAKTion)

Mondays, 11.3, 18.3, 25.3 & 1.4. 2024, 19:00 (a class takes around 1,5 - 2 hours)

Protagon Kulturgelände

This year we will build up on a new set of modules. I was inspired by the theme of this year’s Winterwerft: Losing Ground (Bodenlos). It happens to all of us, sometimes losing a sense of direction, floating between the known and the unknown, the old and the new. Let’s dive deeper into what improv is really about: the love and art of uncertainty. There will still be games and fun exercises like always, but the main goal this year is to really face the stage through internal research around the body and voice, and expressing it through solos. There will also be free-writing sessions. The new format is more accessible to people who don’t go to all the trainings, so they can still progress on their stage presence no matter their skills in improv.

This open training is suitable: 

 

For the ones who always do everything at the last moment since so long that they made it into an art

For the introverts who are so used to be the observer that they lost their own voice

For the childish souls who look for outlets to be free and wild

For the adults who are going crazy inside and want to get out of adulting for just a moment 

 

Pre-requirements: 

 

Before coming to the training, please bring a small text that you loved as a child, for example a lullaby, as well as a bullet point list for each of the 4 modules and their themes. What do these themes feel like to you? What story are they telling? Keep the lists short, maximum 10 words.

 

List of modules

 

1. Losing Ground: body in crisis, looking for the axis points

2. Finding Ground: storytelling body, discover your own movement and voice styles

3. Keeping Ground: work on what keeps it all together: the face and stage presence

4. Solid Ground: unapologetic and wild: a touch of crazy child

Find your Latin Body

with Michael Schmidt (antagon theaterAKTion)

Mondays, 20 November 2023, 19:00 (a class takes around 1,5 - 2 hours)

Protagon Kulturgelände

From theatrical theory we will seek to explore the different qualities of body movement individually and collectively and then advance in the composition in space and its different ways of approaching it to understand how to begin to create choreography with the body. All of this is framed in Latin rhythms and how they react in the body, eliminating the stereotypes of Latin American dances.

Michael is an actor trained in Chile and now a member of antagon theaterAKTion which seeks to explore in Europe how to change the vision of how to work with the body and rhythms in people, all in a playful, conscious and confident way. Everyone is invited to participate in this training, you just need to want to learn and laugh in the process.

Mondays, 6-13 November 2023, 19:00-20:30

Protagon Kulturgelände

In this Open Training you can develop your core strength to gain mobility and flexibility. Mixing yoga and movement exercises with breathing helps to find flow and create a dynamic space and approach yoga with a different eye. Through playful games based on theater principles we gain trust and awareness for each other. The training is always accompanied by music, either on playlist or live, for a cozy and warm atmosphere.

The Fluid Body: fusion dance-theater

with Anna D’Errico (antagon theaterAKTion)

Thursdays, 2-9-16-23 November 2023, 19:00-20:30

Protagon Kulturgelände

When a moving body is dancing and when is acting? During these sessions we will

explore the possibilities of dance and choreographic movement for acting in

connection with traditional dance from middle est and the so-called belly dance. Using

dance elements from different cultural heritages and traditions (with a focus on North

Africa and Mid.East) and principles of physical theater and dance-theater, we will

develop short choreographic and personalized movement sequences. The class will

include as well a short focus on cultural heritage of world dance in the context of

decolonization and the contemporary artistic debate to rethink the fluidity and

femininity of the body movement.

The work starts with a warm-up using combined techniques from yoga and dance, and

continues with body work based on self-perception principles to explore reaction to

specific movements, fluidity, separation and disconnection of body-parts, floor work,

and it progresses with exercise of fusion dance, improvisation and belly dance. We will

deconstruct traditional dance sequence putting them in dialogue with dance-theater

and movement practicing on sequence composition and stage presence.

All levels welcome / donation based / Language: english

Please bring comfortable clothes for body work and a scarf

Impro theatre - Release your inner child 
with Solal Mazet (antagon theaterAKTion)
Mondays in October 2023, 19:00-21:00

Protagon Kulturgelände

In this Open Training, games are a very serious matter. They allow you to transform failure into fun, danger into amusement. When we were kids, we used to marvel at everything and say yes to anything.

Through impro theater we have the opportunity to leave the adult behind and create whole worlds solely with our imagination. As we come together in a moment of deep connection with ourselves and others, we nurture our confidence on stage and learn to let go and smile in the face of danger.

Hopefully, when we put our adult hat on again, we notice that we are no longer alone, but always accompanied by our inner child, to remind ourselves that life, is in fact, all a game.

physical theatre - Follow/Resist

with Max Büttner (antagon theaterAKTion)

Mondays in June 2023, 19:00 (a class takes around 1,5 - 2 hours)

Protagon Kulturgelände

When is the moment to follow, to accept a proposal? And when is it better to resist, to create a challenge? In this open training we will explore these questions through exercises of physical theatre and dance. We will use the principles of following and resisting to discover and expand our capacities of physical storytelling, both alone and with others.

In the interplay of expression and perception, action and reaction with one or more partners, we are looking to achieve a state of presence and flow, setting challenges and providing support to each other.

Each 90 minute session begins with a playful warm-up and exercises for the body and (sometimes) voice, and then moves into clearly structured improvisation and composition situations.
