Round table talk #3

PRAXIS TRONDHEIM TEAM

Welcome to the Round Table Talk with Praxis Trondheim. We have invited Icelandic choreographer Katrin Gunnarsdóttir to talk about her work ALDA, which is inspired by the theme: women's collective physical labour. We are very excited for her and one of the dancers from ALDA to share their experiences and to open a conversation around questions like:

 

What does physical labour mean for female dancers?

What was and is it like to work as a professional dancer?

What challenges are we facing now and in the future?

How to make a living as a performing artist and survive on the market?

What is needed to create a healthy work environment?

What can we learn from the international scene?

How to build a supportive community in Trondheim?

 

Praxis Trondheim is an initiative by and for Trondheim-based performing artists to create a space for sharing artistic practices. With the Round Table Talks we offer a platform for exchange and discussion around specific topics spiced with some movement invitations.

PRAXIS Workshop

ORNILIA PERCIA UBISSE

Workshopen heter Building up ECSTASY. Den er tilknyttet til forestillingen ECSTASY som ble spilt på OJDF, SØaR, DiG og IN2IT International Dance Festival i 2021. Workshopen har fokuset på repetisjon, transformasjon og utholdenhet. Vi bruker repetisjon som et mantra for å roe ned hjernen og generere energi. Målet med workshopen er å dele mine tilnærmingsmetoder i det å bygge opp ECSTASY, både som forestilling og som tilstand.

Bio: Jassem Hindi is a performer, sound artist and teacher.

He has collaborated with choreographers Ligia Lewis, Mia Habib, Lara Kramer, Ida Larsen, Keith Hennessy, Ruairi Donovan, Ofelia Jarl Ortega, Rani Nair and many more.

The performance as a crime scene

JASSEM HINDI

This workshop is an introduction to applied research in the field of performance and dance. In this framework, time-based arts are a creative process used to unveil something new about a given subject: dance is a forensic, investigative tool, and the performance is a murder scene. 
How to create a performance that is intended to be a practice of collective imagination instead of using dance as the simple illustration of a pre-existing concept, or the aestheticization of a political display? 
We will depart from two practical examples: 
- the use of poems as choreographic and political landscapes for performance
- Haunting and hospitality as techniques to approach ecological violence from a forensic perspective

How to make a practice accessible to other movement practitioners, in addition to opening up for an interdisciplinary approach and a broader network?
What can we learn from each other?
What are the benefits and challenges of sharing artistic practice?
What is needed to create a strong network of collaborators in Trondheim?
How to build a community of professional artists from different disciplines who work with movement-based practices in Trondheim?

Partnerwork

AMY PENDER OG MARTIJN JOLING

Amy Pender og Martijn Joling tilbyr en workshop i partnerarbeid. I løpet av timene vil vi jobbe oss gjennom ulike øvelser der deling av vekt, det å stole på hverandre og timing står i sentrum. Vi begynner fra enkle øvelser for å bli kjent med hverandres fysiske strukturer og ser på hvordan vi kan gi og motta vekt. Videre vil vi jobbe med ulike måter å bevege oss på sammen i rommet, for så å gå til mer komplekse akrobatiske løft og manipulasjoner.

Martijn og Amy møtte hverandre under sin utdanning ved Kunsthøyskolen i Amsterdam. De har jobbet sammen i flere prosjekter, blant annet for David Zambrano, Liat Waysbort (NL/IL), Blenard Azizaj (DE/AL) og Bodytalk (DE). I 2015 assisterte Amy Martijn da han lagde stykket “Limitless” ved Staatstheater Braunschweig (DE), og i 2017 lagde de sin første duett “Bak lukkede dører” som nå har turnert med over 70 forestillinger. Siden 2018 har de undervist partnering teknikk ved ulike skoler og for profesjonelle dansere.

Contact Improvisation

INGEBORG DUGSTAD SANDERS &

ANNA THU SCHMIDT

Contact improvisation (CI) is a dance technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for exploration through movement improvisation. The workshop offers an introduction to contact improvisation and a playful approach to the following themes: rolling point of contact, giving/receiving/sharing weight, leading and following, lifting and rolling. We start with a warm-up focussing on bodywork and body awareness that gives an introduction to touch and listening to the bodies and through body surfaces. Movement tasks in contact improvisation technique serve as tools for the exploration of the bodily communication between you and your partner. We finish with an open jam where you can play with the learned material and discover your own dance both alone and in physical contact with your partner.

Material for the spine

OTTO RAMSTAD

“With Material For the Spine, I was interested in alloying a technical approach to improvisational results. It is a system for exploring the interior and exterior muscles of the back. It aims to bring the light of consciousness to the dark side of the body, that is, the sides not much self-seen, and to submit sensations to the mind for consideration.”

Steve Paxton

Material For the Spine concentrates accumulated knowledges from Paxton’s study of walking, Contact Improvisation and Aikido practice to explore the movement possibilities in the spine and the connections between the head, pelvis, and vertebrae. This solo practice is a meditative study of a series of exercises, body puzzles and ideokinetic imagery.

Otto Ramstad followed Steve Paxton’s work of contact improvisation since 1996 and Paxton’s Material For The Spine since 2010. Not accessible for wheelchair users.

Texture and Movement

EDWIN CABASCANGO

Texture and movement

 

T&M workshops take elements from different somatic techniques and contemporary dance. For me it is crucial that dancers’ practice and training go together with performative experience. My goal is to change and activate the physical perception of our body and remind us of the infinite possibilities of movement. The first part of the class goes deeper into breathing forms and how to give direction and form to the body. The form of our breathing can reorganize the intention and expectations of the body. I use Biomechanics for the floorwork, because the physical body needs to understand the spiral form for effectiveness and energy in the articulations and muscles. Partnering is a tool for understanding your body and the second body through playing full dynamics and using the different levels of risk for falling and rolling. This kind of connection takes us into acrobatics. At the same time we use the foot work for transporting each other in space. Much of the material is inspired by fight and play that gives an opportunity to improvise and develop a dancer's own material.

Round table talk

PRAXIS TRONDHEIM TEAM

Hvor mye training trenger vi som utøvende kunstner?

Hva er relevant trening for utøvende scenekunstnere?

Hvordan jobber ulike kunstnere med egen utøvende praksis?

Kan vi lære noe av hverandre her?

 

Disse spørsmålene og mer ønsker vi å drøfte under Round Table med Praxis Trondheim. Velkommen til en åpen diskusjon om hva det er behov for, så vi best mulig kan skreddersy et opplegg som passer for mange. Vi ønsker å samle miljøet, kjenne på at vi er flere som ønsker å utvikle seg som utøver og finne nye metoder for egen praksis. Round table med Praxis Trondheim er et performativt foredrag krydret med noen praktiske eksempler og bevegelsesinvitasjoner.

 

Praxis Trondheim ønsker å skape et rom for deling av kunstneriske praksiser for scenekunstnere og andre bevegelsesinteresserte. I form av ukentlige klasser, workshops og kunstner-foredrag tilbyr vi en plattform for utveksling og diskusjon med bevegelse som fundament. Gjennom et tilbud som Praxis kan vi invitere til dialog mellom individuelle kunstnere og deres lokalsamfunn og på denne måten er vi med på å øke tilbudet til det profesjonelle scenekunst-miljøet i Trondheim. Vi ønsker også å åpne opp for en mer tverrfaglig utveksling, der scenekunstnere og bevegelseinteresserte med ulik bakgrunn, kan dele og lære av hverandre. PRAXIS Trondheim er et initiativ av og for Trondheim-baserte scenekunstnere, inspirert av PRAXIS Oslo.

Stillhet og mørke

CECILIE SLEPPEN ÅLSKOG & Andrea Winsnes

In January 2020, Winsnes/Ålskog was at a residency in Hammerfest at Dansearena Nord where they started developing their movement practice connected to their performance project Stillhet og mørke. The project is based on a common interest in silence and what silence can contain for body and mind. What is silence? According to researcher Olga V. Lehmann, there is no pure silence. Silence is a space in between, and is therefore dependent on visual and audible noise , sounds, movement and language. Can silence initiate new gestures and movements? For us it did. When the pandemic led to the shutdown of dance classes in spring 2020, we started an outdoor movement practice in Tøyenparken in Oslo. This became a weekly practice for professional dancers, where we continued exploring the methods we designed in Hammerfest.

The practice consists of different improvisational tasks with concise bodily frames/images/sensory impressions to embody. With funding from Oslo kommune we did six performances in three different parks in the old district of Oslo, performed between 2-4 October 2020. Winsnes/Ålskog were joined by five of the dancers who had participated in the practice on a regular basis. The performance was called "Stillhet og Mørke - FLOKK", and the dramaturgy/structure was made up of the four main methods of the practice. 

This practice is suitable for dance artists from different backgrounds, abilities and interests. The practice requires an interest in tuning in to what is happening on the inside, on the outside and in relation to the rest of the group.
