Basic Projects provide the possibility

  • to prepare for the education and to scrutinize, if this education is appropriate for you
  • to improve one’s skills and to acquire fundamentals in contemporary dance and especially to get acquainted with our work
  • to establish basics for another education within the realm of bodywork, dance, theatre and movement
  • or simply to attend intensively dance training over a longer period

The BASIS PROJECT and the BASIC PROJECT + are intensive trainings, within fulltime education over a period of three months. They introduce the most important elements of our approach and provide a valuable groundwork for every further work with body, dance, theatre or movement.

Both introduce the most important elements of our approach and provide a valuable groundwork for every further work with body, dance, theatre and movement.

To the fore comes the experience of one’s own structure of movement and body, the work on basic techniques, improvisation and creation. This might be enriched with the aspect of performing before an audience by an optional concluding showing.

The BASIC PROJECTS are directed as discrete projects by two or three of our main-staff-members, enriched by work with guest teachers.
