– a seminar in search of a format that can function as a lab, a lecture and a performance
an exposition by Jannine Rivel
I think there will be more than one on stage.
I think there will be conversations.
I think there will be staged material.
I think there will be questions.
I think there will be recorded material in audio and/or video.
I think there will be some improvisation.
I think there will be choreography.
I think there will be dancing.
I think there will be five senses present and presented.
I think there will be movement-based material.
I think there will be some sort of interaction.
I think there will be music.
I think there will be smell.
I think there will be something to watch.
I think there will be something to taste.
And I think there will be something to sense.
Not knowing the end or what form
Jannine Rivel works within movement through choreography, dance and teaching. She is also a Certified Teacher of Klein Technique™ and teaches classes and travels internationally to teach workshops.
The last two years she has held a series of workshops and labs in relation to her MFA-studies at StDH focusing on the senses and how they can affect the making of movement and choreography.
Mira Mutka works within the field of choreography and dance –often through performing, teaching, un-readable writings and conversations.
A collaboration with Jannine Rivel is ongoing since beginning of 2000. Mira received a MFA in Choreography (New Performative Practices) from DOCH/Uniarts in 2015.
Do I begin from movement, emotion or a specific sense, in relation to the function of the body and its movement possibilities in different motives?
Beginning within one sense how can this change the outcome of the material, choreography, dance or play? Is it possible to use an emotion to (re)do and (re)write past and present in the process of making performing art? Can this tilt the structures surrounding us?
I also wrote a master essay called Intertwined figures. I worked with the same set up in the writing as in re-hers. You can e-mail me if you want to read it or find it through Diva
