Florentina Holzinger and Vincent Riebeek gave us a very successful workshop last year – now they’re coming back! Are you?
Free your mind the rest will follow.
Following last year’s touching performance Kein Applaus für Scheisse, Florentina Holzinger and Vincent Riebeek are this year showing us the performances Spirit and Wellness as a part of Bastard 2014. Just as in their first piece, the duo is guided by a powerful sense of generosity: generous in their love for each other, and generous in their love of the audience.
In this workshop, Holzinger and Riebeek will transfer their choreographic work on the body of a dance class. You will warm up to get the energy flowing and the muscles pumping, followed by guided moving, with the purpose to connect and heal ourselves and the universe. You will formulate poetry in a physical way and share the essence of being to create unforgettable art together now. You will joyfully bounce off the frustrations of not-knowing and dive into the abyss of universal truth and knowledge through charging the exotic idiot inside of yourself.
The workshop is open to dancers, actors and others with professional performing background. Register by sending an e-mail with name and background to Eivind Haugland within thursday the 11th of September.
