Raphaël Ferdinand Eder Kastling

The class will take a practitioner trajectory towards a technical dance practice. It’s become a goal of his not to work with participants through documented contemporary movement techniques. Instead to try and encourage improvisation through and by finding your own niche of moving.

With warmups and tasks which consist of using words to describe what is being targeted. An example would be liquid movement, rotating wrists, elbows, and shoulders. ‘What happens with the rest of the body that follow these isolations, make up your own rhythm and dynamics in the improvised sequence.

In this class you will be encouraged to research your own ways of movement, within a co-authorship of structured scores. Personal movement research, away from documented techniques where unison work is part of the practice. Each day we will ‘perform’ structures and tasks and take note on our own development.

Please bring comfortable clothes for virtuosic dance, notebook, and optionally: a favorite dance track.

Only as a member, you can take part in Dansehallerne’s training activities – a year-round program with approximately 5 days of training per week. International guests can also join training for free for up to 1 month. 

This is for all professional members no matter background in dance training, and we recommend joining both for drop in or all days✨
