Workshop information

Workshop description:
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.

Michael Schumacher is a versatile dance artist who has developed a unique approach to the discipline of improvisation. He has been a member of several groundbreaking companies, including Ballet Frankfurt, Twyla Tharp Dance, and Magpie Music Dance Company. In recent years, his choreographic work has come to the forefront in productions of the Holland Dance Festival. With Jiří Kylián, he created the hauntingly beautiful Last Touch First, which has been performed throughout Europe to great acclaim. Together with Sabine Kupferberg, Schumacher created Queen Lear, a magical distillation of Shakespeare’s epic narrative into a dramatic duet. He has also made guest appearances in productions by Peter Sellars, William Forsythe, Dana Caspersen, Anouk van Dijk and Sylvie Guillem. In 2008, Schumacher was awarded both the Gouden Zwaan and the Jiří Kylián Ring, the first dancer/choreographer ever to receive the two awards at the same time. Mr Schumacher resides in Amsterdam and gives workshops in movement analysis and improvisation worldwide.
