The class is for people, young and old, professional dancers, movers and for amateurs. The focus will be on improvisation. We will dance to different music in many different ways. We will try to be authentic, organic and unique but we will also try to be all the same. The class is about finding new ways of creating movement material. It’s about having fun on the dance floor – both individually but also together as a group. This class is a proof that anyone can dance, you don’t need any special body or any special skills.
Ásrún Magnúsdóttir is showing the piece Listening Party at Bastard!
Ásrún Magnúsdóttir was born in Reykjavík, Iceland in 1988. She has a B.A. degree in dance from the Icelandic Academy of the Arts. Her work aims to stretch the dominant modes of dance and choreography and has been received well at home and abroad, as made apparent by her numerous festival appearances, awards and nominations. Currently, she is interested in working with people that have not given dance or dancing much thought and trying to make invisible choreographies visible.
She is interested in amplifying voices that she feels might be heard better; giving the stage to other people space to speak up, be seen and listened to. She has a great deal of experience working with different social groups, especially young people, teenagers and children but also micro-communities like her own neighbours, residents of particular neighbourhoods or people that share an apartment building. Her work has toured in Europe where she has also given workshops for professionals and amateurs alike.
