2021-6 Urban Contemporary Choreography Project
In this 5 days workshop you will work and create a Choreography with Anne, which will be shown at the informal presentation of all workshops on Friday at about 18:15. The days start with a warm up in which Anne will let you experience the specific shapes and techniques of her style, with elements such as bounce, flow, opening up the body, stamina, different muscle qualities, improvisation, and musicality will be worked on. After the warm up she will work on several movement phrases, and will lead you to go much deeper into the material and play with the material. The focus will be both on embodiment as well as ‘performance’, seeing movement as a way to communicate.
The dancers personality and authenticity are important for Anne while working as a teacher and choreographer. “Who are you and what is your story?”. Recurring themes and subjects are: embodying the material with its specific technical aspects and making it your own at same time, the connection of the movement with the music, beats etc, the embodiment of sounds, being powerful ánd vulnerable in dance, giving shape and form to feelings/emotions.
Anne’s academic background mixed with her urban feel makes a unique, natural fusion and organic contemporary movement language, which is strongly driven by music. Her style is very rhytmical and dynamic.
