Contemporary dance class

by Drosia Triantaki


Contemporary dance is based on the organisation of the body towards expressive movement and the development of its relation to rhythm and space.

The classes are based on the technique and methodologies established at Folkwang Universität der Kunst Pina Bausch, in Essen, Germany. They are focused on the quality of movement and bodily rhythm as it relates to music, spirals, breathing, relation to the ground plane, and continuity of motion.

The classes are integrated in Die Wolke’s framework, which also includes events, productions, and collaborations. They aim at a balance between a structured programme and a space for personal expression, aimed at dancers, movers, performers of various disciplines, or even simply those who are curious and eager to explore their bodies. The classes have not just different skill levels, but also directions. What they all have in common is an affinity to Die Wolke’s creative methodology and disposition. Some classes also include an end-of-year presentation, during which the participants will also gain insight and experience into performance staging, lighting, and workflow.
