Workshop scholarship at Künstlerhaus Lukas, Ahrenshoop

with Laura Böttinger

05-18 August 2019

In the ten-day choreographic laboratory, Laura Böttinger works together with the project participants at Künstlerhaus Lukas to develop approaches to her own choreographic traces.

The participants will use research processes in nature as a starting point. Where do I leave traces and are they always comprehensible? What traces do my movements leave on others?

The results of the laboratory will be presented to the public and put up for discussion during the Long Night of Art at the end of the stay at Künstlerhaus Lukas. In addition to a performative presentation, the team opens its doors and invites interested amateurs to the workshop to get to know the principles of the Choreographic Laboratory.

Public presentation during the 20th Long Night of Art on 17.08.2019, 7 & 8 pm, Neues Kunsthaus in Ahrenshoop.

The workshop scholarship at Künstlerhaus Lukas is funded by the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

With Martin Nachbar and the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE

Dance amateurs aged over 50 and professional dancers are coming together on an equal footing in a project by and with the choreographer Martin Nachbar: while members of the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE are bringing their many years of dance experience to the project, dance amateurs are doing the same with the specific skills they have acquired in the course of their lives. Together, they will develop an artistic format that picks up on the practices of the DANCE ON dancers and translates them in such a way that interested amateurs can benefit from generating movement material and dancing together.

First formats were already developed in two workshops in February and April 2017 in the Berlin Uferstudios, which were then deepened in July 2017 during a residence week at Schloss Bröllin with other participants from Pasewalk and the surrounding area.
