Day 1: Saturday 27.05 at Uferstudios
free participation, registration required
Laloushak / Ariel Hayun
twerk, belly dance, knead, vibrate, shake
Laloushak is an open research practice in which we will experiment with movements coming from Twerking, Belly dance and Orly Portal Method to soften, knead and shake the flesh around our pelvises. Ariel's ongoing research explores ways of combining knowledges from subversive dance practices in which the pelvis is the protagonist with feminist and queer approaches. Laloushak is the pilot version for a series of events in which Ariel wishes to bring together people, pelvises, asses and minds to explore the ‘sensuous knowledge’ arising from them.
All genders welcome, non-dancers warmly invited.
The studio is barrier free, I would be happy to open the session for all bodies so please contact me if you are interested to come but not sure if you are fully able physically to participate.
For registration, questions, and further details, please contact Ariel via

body parts shifting / Lena Klink
body parts shifting is inspired by somatic approaches such as Feldenkrais and research on neuroplasticity, which shows how habits become embedded and manifest in our bodies. The movement-based practice is designed to teach the body how to implement already experienced actions/reactions in new places and contexts by moving body parts as other body parts would.
We do start the improvisation session by generating attention, lying and not moving (please prepare your clothing accordingly).
For registration, questions, and further details, please contact Lena via email: email@example.com

Mythologies / Omer Keinan
practice-led research, somatics, imagination, performance
Mythologies is a practice-led investigation through the interrelation of embodiment, performance, and media-driven, mediated representations of reality. Utilizing somatic and psychoanalytic practices, we tune into a state of playing where imagination and movement intermingle. Through a sequence of improvisation sessions, we engage with a particular mythology and attempt to unfold it through embodied practice.
A frame for nourishing a capacity to think and imagine through movement, as well as exploring principles of dance and choreography. Striving to develop individual and collective toolsets with which to excavate, decipher, discuss and tinker with embodied knowledge, exploring its applications and implications for performance making and the practice of everyday life.
