Tickets allow participants to work with all artists involved in the programme based on the period of engagement.

Other Details

Candidates opting for the intensive group will be offered the opportunity to engage in a creative process working with an established choreographer.
Draft works is a pilot project that aims to offer participants the opportunity to work with an artist on a small scale residency. Edan Gorlicki was invited to lead this session. The choreographer will use narrative text to inform and guide his creative process.
Participants will therefore experience working with a choreographer in real time, investigate movement and narrative through in-depth research and be guided towards an informal sharing of extracts from the creative process work.

*Claire Croize (BE)
In her choreographies Claire Croizé investigates the body and its relation to music, silence and the resulting emotions. Her workshops she will explore the use of techniques from her recent creation EVOL, which aims at introspection and personal movement material. Two by two, we will improvise in silence and with our eyes closed to block out external influences and focus purely on our feelings and sensations. Bit by bit we will open ourselves to others and the space, without losing our inner focus, moving towards a search for the musicality of our own movement. The personal language we develop will then be confronted with classical music and pop, resulting in a shared dialogue between yourself, the dancers and the music. 

* Edan Gorlicki (DE/IL)
Born in Haifa, Israel, Edan Gorlicki is a choreographer, teacher, mentor and movement research artist based in Heidelberg, Germany. As a dancer he has worked with the prestigious dance companies Batsheva Ensemble Dance Company, Inbal Pinto Dance Company, NND/Galilidance and Club Guy & Roni. Edan has performed the works of many choreographers including: Ohad Naharin, Inbal Pinto, Sharon Eyal, Itzik Galili, Paul Selwyn Norton, Emmanuel Gat, Guy Weizman & Roni Haver and many more.
One of his sessions will be LAMA which has the based interest and research into understanding the relationship between movement and presence. The source of this study came from working with non-professional dancers in order to discover movement from a more natural approach and implement it into the “dancer’s” mind. LAMA focuses mainly on presence, body awareness, and studying personal qualities, and at the same time building stamina, form and control.
A LAMA session is structured as guided improvisation and includes technical exercises implemented into momentary tasks. LAMA brings into consciousness our connection as humans to our physicality, imagination, senses, observation skills and fun. LAMA is very much inspired by the methods and techniques that come from Edan's professional experience including GAGA, Ballet, Cunningham, Fascia Therapy but mainly common sense.
