Contemporary Technique Class with Kata Juhasz
Sun. Sept. 30th 12noon - 2pm
$10 - or $15 for both workshops
Flowing low - dancing high
The underlying theme of the class is circular motion and its quintessence
Get into the centri-fugue state!
After an exhilarating warm-up, we are going to have some skill practices,
developing and experimenting with phrases and creative tasks. The beginning
is based on yoga-postures and Pilates exercises with a body-mind knowledge
that allows body flowing movements in space. All that will be followed by
floor work phrases, then the class evolves through standing up step by step
with a lot of dancing. Including proper breathing which supports the
continuity of the movements, the work is focused on feeling the body, the
space and each other from an inner perspective.

Improvisation Workshop with Patrik Kelemen
Sun. Sept. 30th 2pm - 4pm

DANCE AS CORPOREAL FICTION,
How do we interpret a body? What is it really made of?
Can we create bodies? Can bodies create dance?
Is movement bound to the corpus or the other way around?
In this workshop we are to create a fantastic body image thatll lead our
actual corporeal self into dance. Through the deployment of imagination,
knowledge on eastern medicine, meridian work and exercises of visualization
we aim to reach a state of semi-autonomous movement.
I propose to use non-human figures, which our proprioceptive data may be fed

Patrik Kelemen, is an emerging choreographer in Budapest. He has
collaborated with other choreographers and currently is working on a new
solo Celestine, dealing with things coming from the sky thus addressing the
otherworldly traits of dance in a poetic manner.
He has recently performed, among others, in Kiss by Tino Seghal (2017),
Waiting For Schrodinger by Lazlo Fulop (2018) and Standing Ground (2018) by
Imre Vass, a 2016 BILATERAL Artist.
Kelemen as noted when citing the BILATERAL Exchange that there are growing
currents of autonomous, micro-scenes are emerging within each major European
city that herald their own local circle of artists, circle of values and
circle of dance- and theatre making. They seclude themselves, as resources
for touring & programming are scarce. As a young artist participating in the
circulation of one of this ecosystem I find it hard to enjoy or even to
grasp the true diversity of todays contemporary dance. Thus, any program
that sets out to address this issue and bridge diverse points of view are
