From the inside – choreography and somatic practice
From the inside – choreography and somatic practice is a seminar about how contemporary dance and choreography has been changed and developed through somatic practices. The seminar is arranged by Dansens Hus (DH) in collaboration with Oslo National Academy of Arts (KHiO).
20th of May 2017 at Oslo National Academy of Arts
From the 60's until now contemporary dance and choreography has been changed and developed through somatic practices, interest for the kinaesthetic and inner experiences of the senses as a founder for art. With the development of release based techniques and interest for the how the body function has both changed how dance is and how we see and experience it.
19th of May we have two premieres coming up at Dansens Hus; Kristina Gjems One Gust of Wind- and they all dance and Wee/Fransesco Scavetta and Gry Kipperberg Lost Accidentally. The performances are different both in their aesthetic interest and form, but both shared an interest and a way of empathizing the somatic work as a part of the creation process. With this occasion Dansens Hus in collaboration with The National Academy of Arts in Oslo, invites to a one day seminar that includes both workshops and a performance.
Both Kristina Gjems and Gry Kipperberg will be with us and share artistic practice and reflect upon how this shape and develops their work. Ingri Fiksdal and Venke Sortland will share from the work with Shadows of Tomorrow/BAND and the Austrian choreographer Anne Juren will contribute with the performance “Fantasmical Anatomy”. The seminar will range from taking part in artistic practices where somatic and release based work shapes the creation process (Gjems and Wee), to diving into how to work with the audiences’ kinesthetic experience (Fiksdal and Sortland) to a performance that takes place within each body (Juren)
Moderators: Snelle Hall and Per Roar (KHiO) og Solveig Styve Holte (DH)
