About the event
PRAXIS Praksis is a 3 day long 'morning sharing' where we have invited several dance artists who will hold a space in which they share their ways into dancing; this can be through their daily routine, a choreographic practice, or other approaches into moving that have inspired them.
Remember to bring an extra layer of warm clothes and a mat to stay warm during the beginning of the class.
The classes are 1.5 or 2 hours long starting at 09:30.
Each class is 50kr.
At KADI Studio
Doorbell 204 (Kadi Fever Dance).
What if movement could be reversed at any time? Can a sense of linear progression, of a forward and backward be dissolved?
During these three days, I will share a movement practice based on the principle of reversibility,
which has been the basis for my choreographic work. Mainly drawing from meditation practices and Feldenkrais, I will guide the participants through a series of exercises that tune our awareness towards reversibility. My approach departs in a felt sense of the moving body rather than a visual idea. Challenging coordination and memory, we will work with different focuses, including facial and gestural expressions and negotiate the impossibility of reversal in a changing environment.
Max Wallmeier (DE/DK) is a choreographer and dancer based in Copenhagen. He holds a BfA in Dance Performance from Uniarts in Stockholm and an MfA in Choreography from the Danish
National School of Performing Arts. He worked for choreographers such as Yvonne Rainer, Luísa Saraiva and Lisa Colette Bysheim and as a member of Weld Company in Stockholm.
As a maker, he is interested in the subtleties of asking for and paying attention. The way that
movement unfolds in time is central in his artistic research. How do changes in this unfolding affect a dancer’s and the audience’s experience and how can it be used to create resonance? In his latest research project In the Wake he invited several collaborators to create duets and a group piece with a focus on reversibility as a movement principle and composition strategy.
He works in an ongoing collaboration with Maia means, in which they explore choreographic
strategies to book- and dancemaking.
