EASTER INTENSIVE The Mobile Camera in cooperation with CINEDANS 2018

Teacher: Andrea Boll, Peter Kadar & Chris Fawcett

In cooperation with Cindedans 2018, we present

The MOBILE CAMERA

 

Choreographer Andrea Boll created the film Downhill in collaboration with Steadicam operator/editor Peter Kadar and Steadicam expert Chris Fawcett, entirely on smartphones. These cameras are always at hand which allowed them to produce with a certain flexibility. Most importantly however, they turned out to be the perfect equipment for challenging terrain like the steep mountains of the Alps. Fawcett’s newest application for the smartphone – the smartphone stabiliser by Steadicam and the Steadicam Volt – proved to be very crucial tools.

In collaboration with the Henny Jurriëns Foundation, Cinedans organises a two day workshop for dancers with cinematographic ambition. Are you interested in combining your talent as a dance maker with the medium film and intrigued by dancefilm as an autonomous artistic form? Andrea Boll and her team will introduce you to the choreography of the camera: Where does the camera take over from the dancer and how do you create a dynamic film? A hands on workshop for practised as well as curious creators.

You will work with your own material. Participants bring their own camera, smartphone, iPad and editing software.

Although the confirmation on this website will ask you to send additional info like cv, dancevideo, this will not be mandatory for this workshop right now. Just register now, and you will receive info by Cinedans!!

 CINEDANS 2018 will take place from 14 -18 March for more info see  HERE 

SAVE THE DATE, During the Summer Intensive ’18 the HJS will host Cinedans for the second time with a two day workshop Auditioning on Camera. During this course participants learn how to make an effective high-qualified audit film.

EASTER INTENSIVE ION Tribe with Luke Jessop

Teacher: Luke Jessop

 

 This workshop is specifically designed for contemporary dancers and for martial arts practitioners who wish to improve their general movement skills. Using a wide range of exercises and games we will train our body awareness, sensitivity and reflexes in order to gain more confidence when utilized in a competitive scenario. We will train our familiarity of inverting (upside down) and recognition of recovering positions, alongside developing precision in our intentions. The workshop is crafted to benefit those who train in striking, grappling, wrestling or a mixture of all.

EASTER INTENSIVE Double Skin / Double Mind with Victor Callens

Teacher: Victor Callens / ICK Amsterdam

 

10.00 - 12.00  morning class/warming up
12.00 – 13.00 break
13.00 – 16.30 workshop

DOUBLE SKIN / DOUBLE MIND THE METHOD
“DS/DM is a way of preparing the body for dance that is inherent to your thinking and your imagination. It needs a connection with your own choices, also during the improvisation with other elements and materials. The experience creates a condition and an opening, it is not something fixed by rules that say: this is how you should dance. It is rather the opposite, you use it, and then you contrast it in an open field of intervention and manipulation".- Emio Greco-

Double Skin/Double Mind (DS/DM) is a dance method developed by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten to discover the sensitivity of the body through four basic principles: Breathing, Jumping, Expanding and Reducing. This awareness of the possibilities that the body can generate is necessary when creating new choreographic material. Because of this, the DS/DM method is the basis of every individual performance by Greco and Scholten. The DS/DM method is offered as a masterclass, a training or a workshop to both amateurs and professionals. Experiencing the DS/DM method can lead to a new physical and mental awareness in which intention and form coincide. DS/DM also provides insight into the artistic work of the two choreographers.

DYNAMICS, RHYTHM & TEXTURE


Date:     Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 July
Time:     11:30 - 14:30
Price:     € 135,-  

 This is a physical Contemporary Workshop, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self development.

The significant factors for the workshop are to develop the dancers' creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality and most importantly an intention/honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session. 

Our style has been inspired and developed from working with the likes of Akram Khan (fusion of Kathak and Contemporary Dance), Retina Dance Company (Release and Contact Work), Gregory Maqoma (Afro-Fusion Dance) and Henri Oguike (Classical Contemporary Dance based on Forsythe and Cunningham techniques).

Time: 11:30 - 14:00
Price: € 185,-
 
Lab Partnering | Creation Tools
This Lab / workshop brings us closer to the vocabulary of physical work developed by GN | MC in the creation processes based on “partnering” and contact work. The participants will start from concrete physical tasks, movement generators and starting points looking for mechanisms of the body in motion, observing it in order to multiply the ways and approaches to the understanding of the anatomy of movement and the body. Within all these elements, participants will expand their own tools to improvise and create material in pair and group.

2018-9 Michael Schumacher

Teacher: Michael Schumacher (usa/nl)

 Improvisation and Istant Composition

 

People who already took previous workshops with Michael, are invited too!

Date: Monday 9 July – Friday 13 July 2018
Time: 15:00 – 18:00
Price: € 165,-

The aim of this workshop is to develop conscious presence while improvising in a performance.
Each session begins with exercises that explore relationships between thought, movement and presence in the immediate environment. By promoting a greater awareness of sensory input, the performer becomes better equipped to interact with their internal and external impulses.
The session continues with examples of both fixed and open structures in which the participants improvise with such elements as dance, music, text, and light. Through practice and theory, participants explore a process by which they collectively experience spontaneously created compositions.

TUESDAY 10 - Friday 13 July

2018-12 Hannes Langolf

Teacher: Hannes Langolf

Creative Co-Authoring
an intensive workshop with Hannes Langolf (former performer with DV8 Physical Theatre)

In the ever-changeing landscape of contemporary dance and theatre, nowadays performers are not merely a vessel for the choreographers work but are also often invited to form an integral part of the artistic process, solving creative questions, devising scenarios, creating material and entering a collaborative process to enrich the work with their integrity.
This specially tailored workshop focusses on what tools, skills and attributes are required for this type of joint endeavour. During these four days, Hannes will lead a creative project, conceived to expose challenges, questions and opportunities that might arise when working alongside a choreographer, whilst also training and sharpening performative competence.
Each day will start with a rigorous physical training, leading into voice work and followed by creative tasks, building confidence and skilfulness for creative co-authoring.

This workshop is aimed at professional dancers and performers with strong physical training, who are curious to expand their creative toolbox, interested in exploring voice and theatricality, and eager to form a generous and investigative environment to expand in.

Saturday 14 July (one day)

2018-13 Eric Beauchesne / Kidd Pivot workshop

Teacher: Eric Beauchesne

Kidd Pivot workshop


   photo by Michael Slobodian

Date: Saturday 14 July
Time: 10:00 – 17:00
Price: € 75,-

This workshop is designed to initiate professional dancers to the work and artistry of choreographer Crystal Pite through improvisation and the study of her repertoire.

Improvisation
The improvisation session focuses on discovering and revealing articulations and timings in the body. The class begins with a warm-up as participants articulate deeply through the body in stages, starting from the spine and working towards the extremities. Participants work at their own pace, exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The class is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience.

Repertoire
This session spotlights specific excerpts, which the participants are invited to learn, examine and experience. Focus will be given to many aspects of Crystal’s dance making such as precision, clarity, articulation, sequencing, intense physicality, and the idea of one being danced.

2018-15 Cinedans, Auditioning on Camera

Teacher: Liat Waysbort & Leo van Emden

Auditioning on Camera with Liat Waysbort & Leo vanEmden

Date:     Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 July
Time:    12:00 - 15:00
Price:    € 100,-

For a first round of auditions, dancers are increasingly expected to present themselves through a short videoclip. With today’s smartphones everyone has a camera at their disposal. But how do you showcase your talent in an insightful and honest way? How do you display yourself and your talent when you’re not there? And how do you ensure that the videoclip’s quality is sound? In this workshop you’ll work under the guidance of choreographer Johan Greben and filmmaker Leo van Emden, both former dancers, as you’ll explore both theory and practical assignments. We won’t make it in 6 hours to make a complete video, but you’ll have a startup and will be equipped to finish your own video!
