Wror Performance at Hellerau, Dresden

I will be dancing for Miriam Welk  in Wror for the Linie 08 New artists series on Feb 11 & 12.

Miriam Welk // wror

Wror ist ein selbst erdachtes Wort. Es ist der Versuch zu beschreiben, was man hört und fühlt, wenn man hohen Druck auf den Ohren hat. Es ist der Versuch zu beschreiben, was man sieht, wenn die Augen nicht in der Lage sind zu fokussieren; den Status des Da-Zwischen-Seins zu definieren. Die Choreografin Miriam Welk begibt sich mit ihren beiden Tänzerinnen auf die Suche nach der Wahrnehmung und ihren Veränderungszuständen.

Contact-Tango- Theatre Summer Workshop Residency Javier Cura & Moss Beynon Juckes Bechyně Franciscan Monastery, Czech Republic Aug 22nd

The Parade

Contact-Tango- Theatre
Summer Workshop Residency

Javier Cura & Moss Beynon Juckes

At Bechyně Franciscan Monastery, Czech Republic
22nd till 29th of August, 2010

This will be a week long summer holiday and residency in a historical Franciscan Monastery, in the Bohemian region of the Czeck republic. The Monastery is placed in the little village of Bechyne, over viewing the valley of the river Lužnice, surrounded by its terraced gardens and natural landscapes. This captivating environment offers a special opportunity to focus through play and physical transformations on our creativeness and self awareness.

We will engage our sensorial and emotional perception towards ourselves, the others and the surroundings through contact improvisation, tango dance, martial arts forms, voice work and elements of physical theatre. We will work in the interior spaces of the monastery, in the terraced gardens and in the nearby river and forests, articulating creative compositions that come from within that dialogue, allowing the social and natural environment to resonate on us.

Using play, sounds and songs, objects, lights, masks or stories, we will develop a parade of different energies and characters, relating, sharing and exchanging them.
All these activities will allow us time to enjoy a creative distance with our own selves and to awaken our awareness. This aliveness will gives us the energy to experience, deconstruct and reassemble, thus opening doors to deeper expressions of the self.

In the end of the week we will share our work with our friends, guests and Bechyne villagers through an open performance. This performance is not at all compulsory and each one is invited to participate in the way she/he feels like.

The Monastery; some facts about the place:

The monastery is a gothic jewel reconstructed in the 15th century by the Franciscan order together with the church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. In this way, it is purposely combining masculine and feminine elements, offering to its inhabitants a symbolic spatial completeness.

In the centre of the building there is a courtyard; a symbolic womb from which all living beings and creatures are born. It is surrounded by a windowed corridor with a unique vaulting, which gives it a surprisingly acoustic resonance. This was the place where the monks used to walk, sing and meditate. The entire building is surrounded by what had been in the past the vegetable gardens and orchards and now are the terraced gardens that overview the river and the valley. The river flows besides the village and into farmlands, and natural parks. The Monasterys spatial design and its location seem to metaphorically express the nature that is within and around ourselves. It makes it a special place to rediscover our connection to our primordial natural and animal energies and acknowledge our empathy with all that is a alive.

Opening day Sunday 22nd: meeting 4pm. Training from 6pm to 9 pm
