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.

The classes are 1.5 or 2 hours long starting at 09:30.

Each class is 50kr.

The doors will open 9:15.

At the back gate of Hausmania!

We ask you to come in good time, as the space is not easy for late-comers.

DESCRIPTION 

Erving Goffmann has a quote that says:

“Stigma is a process by which the reaction of others spoils normal identity”

During my Praxis praksis, I will share aspects of my MA research at Khio which revolved around the idea of “ Social improvisation”.

I find the Improvisation as something personal, it originates from the personal. In dance when I see improvisation, it is embedded unconsciously. The moment of not repeating. Something impulsive. The assumption of wildness and freedom in your movements. Avoiding returning to familiar patterns. At least this is how I seek improvising. Telling an impulsive story right there and then and those around me. A body that is used to improvising with no set movements will often find its way in the improvisations, while a body that is not used to the work of improvising will often tend to move and find familiar patterns in its movements where it will feel safe and free. The results of these two different works of improvising is crucial for me in determining the outcome. Moving away from one's own “safe dancing” or “safe movements” requires time and safe unjudging space. To move or expand in the work of improvisation is something I think is quite personal for a dancer. From the starting point to which route improvisation takes is the interesting point in the journey of improvisation. The “instinct” is there but with improvisation one tends to train the subconscious through the practice of improvisation. How can I just be in the relationship and story being evolved right now? In this lovely and new praxis room? What stories can we share here and now?
