Workshop för dansare: Megastructure

Datum: 12 - 14 jun 2024

Tid: 10.00 - 16.00

Ort: Malmö

Arrangeras av Dansalliansen.

Sarah Baltzinger and Isaiah Wilson, co-creators and performers of the duet MEGASTRUCTURE, have developed a movement language around the puppeteering and mechanical body. Their work navigates between physical theater and “distorted bodies”.

In their work with performers, the two artists are constantly on the lookout for choreographic tools that reveal the singularities of each individual. For this workshop, Sarah and Isaiah will pass on various tools that enables the participants to approach dance through improvisation methods, contact work and research into different bodily states. Their choreographic research revolves around a play on consequences, working on chain reactions, with one movement leading to another, placing the body in different ”situations” that will lead the performer to deploy its own creativity and search for solutions inherent to each body. Through improvisations, participants will explore notions of weight, resistance, rebound, release, suspension, driving points, isolation, and a seesaw between a global body and a dissociated body. Sarah and Isaiah seek to offer the possibility of traveling through different states in the body, of understanding one’s own rhythmicity and creating ruptures and instantaneous changes of states, of embodying different characters and offering performers keys to instant composition.
