From 12h – 16h
| resonance | is a workshop for movement artists based on practices that enable heightened states of sensory perception. We share methods for reverberating mindfully with other artists during duet and ensemble improvisation. We focus on listening, sensing, and acting from sound, movement, and memory impulses. We explore expansions and contractions of energy and sound in our bodies and in the spaces where we work. We trace the pathways that movement material takes between outside and inside: input – filtering – output – sending. Rather than reacting to other artists, we cultivate a stance that allows us to observe, consider, and respond with as much of our selves as possible. The group explores questions like: How do we transmit messages that perpetuate in different forms through the space instead of dying out? How do we translate or morph messages into different media like writing, drawing, or assessing? How can we use vibration, reflection, sounding, panning, resounding, writing, and remembering to create a resonating body?
Workshops can be designed for various durations: from one 3-hour session to multiple sessions spread throughout a week. The culmination of each workshop series is typically a public performance by the workshop leaders, participants, and invited guests.
This workshop is being developed by dance artists Martín Lanz Landázuri (Mexico) and Emily Sweeney (USA) and sound artist William Bilwa Costa (USA). It has been led in collaboration with dance artists Malin Astner (Germany/Sweden), Kristin Orav (Estonia), Daniela Lehmann (Germany), Raisa Kröger and Signe Koefoed (Germany).
