Choreography workshops

by Drosia Triantaki

How do we conceive and approach choreography as viewers, dancers, as autonomous bodies, or as interpreters?

The workshop operates with two classes: Introduction to Choreography explores the basic choreographic principles and methods, while Choreography 2 builds on them and focuses on duet work.

COVID-19 update: Due to regional lockdown, workshops between November 3 and 17 are cancelled.

Introduction to choreography workshop

Intro to choreography

… for those interested in choreographic creativity as observers, but also as creators. It is a series of self-contained workshops, each with specific thematic content, that can be attended individually, or as a cycle.

The workshop is targeted at dancers, actors, architects, performers, artists, and anyone interested in engaging with the structure of human motion in space.

Choreography 2

The main subject of the workshop is the study and eventual creation of a duet. Emphasis will be given to compositional structures and the organisation of materials around the kinetic possibilities, as well as restrictions, that arise from the use of two bodies.

The workshop is targeted at artists with prior experience in choreography and improvisation, including workshops like Introduction to Choreography.
