Moving Through The Screen

Mon, 13th dec, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

Tue, 14th dec, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

Starting from the question of “what is dance?”, In this workshop we try to look at dance in a broader context. Participants are invited to use captured movements in urban spaces as a source for creating movement materials playing with gestures, speed, rhythm, etc, and also to examine the filming possibilities. We try to gain a better understanding of screendance medium and what it could offer us by finding the relationships between dance and film that are the only two art forms that both move in time and space. Participants are asked to bring their own recording devices (mobile phones perfectly do). This workshop is open to anybody interested and no background in dance or film is required.


Contemporary & Urban, Raha Nejad

Wed, 15th dec, 10 a.m.-12 a.m., Studio 2

Thu, 16th dec, 10 a.m.-12 a.m., Studio 2

A variety of dance styles, commercial, contemporary and urban, are used in this class. Musicality, precision in the execution of movements and reflection of emotions while dancing are central aspects of the teaching. The class consists of freestyle sequences and a mix of choreography in diagonals through the room.


Practicing Overflow – Memory, Spaces and Gestures of (Un)belonging,
Kâmnoush Khosrovani

Wed, 15th dec,1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

Thu, 16th dec, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

“Practicing Overflow” will focus on the relationship and connectivity of participants as individuals and as groups, constantly including and excluding one and another. These emergent communities, “cells”, are lived in an ongoing process of composition and decomposition countering a hegemonic social background that reclaimes itself as “The Cell”. The workshop invites everyone to create an environment where overflowing can be explored as a way to support, encouragement, as well as to connect and react to the depth and complexity of their own and other‘s needs and expressions.


Force and its Direction,
Pressure and its Efficiency,
Ali Moini

Fri, 17th dec, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

Sat, 18th dec, 1 p.m.-4 p.m., Studio 2

The force when is applied, contains a direction and its direction could be changed if another container of the force crosses its path.  The pressure that the force puts on an obstacle, which exists within its path, does not follow the direction of the force because pressure does not have a direction! The force continues to create pressure on the obstacle unless its energy finishes or the obstacle does not endure the pressure. We will be working on these subjects and more.

Morning Class

a Playground

Fri, 17th dec, 10 a.m.-12 a.m., Studio 2

Sat, 18th dec, 10 a.m.-12 a.m., Studio 2

In a gentle and efficient way, participants are introduced to ease, strength and clarity in the alignment of the body in space and openness in movement. In this class, open to all bodies and levels, organic movement phrases are developed that primarily explore weight shifts and explore forces acting on the body. The goal is to find joy in movement and playfulness in the moment.
