Elisabeth & Company are in residence at the Moselmusikfestival in St. Maximin, Trier this summer.

Within this residency Elisabeth will work on the new piece HEAR EYES MOVE. Dances with Ligeti.

We are excited to announce the creation of a new work

HEAR EYES MOVE

Dances with Ligeti

to premiere on
16th / 17th December 2020
Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg.

Elisabeth Schilling will, together with five dancers and pianist Cathy Krier, present an unprecedented choreographic interpretation of the virtuoso Etudes pour Piano by renowned composer György Ligeti.This creation is co-produced by Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, Kunstfest Weimar and Moselmusikfestival and furthermore supported by Philharmonie Luxembourg, TROIS C-L Luxembourg amongst others.

The Hand Wash Dance humorously engages an everyday skill that suddenly took centre stage during the Covid-19 pandemic. Drawing on a number of medical and instructional videos, the choreography seeks to bring a little more fun to an individual exercise in hygiene that still helps save lives.

The Hand Wash Dance is part of a a competition launched by the TROIS C-L Luxembourg.

Elisabeth will be speaking at MOVING OUT Symposium as part of Surge Festival Scotland, Saturday 4th July to introduce her newest idea:

INVISIBLE DANCES: Art after Lockdown

– a new work touring from summer onwards. This freshly developed, unusual format of presenting and touring dance responds directly to and respects all current restrictions and medicinal measurements, is highly cost efficient, creative and brings art and dance back to the heart of our and your local communities. Get in touch for more info!

Last year Elisabeth participated in the making of an art film named ‘Nympaea Alba’ with artists Yvette Bathgate, Abby Beatrice, Aymee Jo Charlton.

Supported by Creative Scotland, the film was due to premiere these days…

#Portrait I Elisabeth Schilling, dancer and choreographer: “Research is the ‘scaffolding’ for every artist.”

#szenikmag introduces the enthusiastic and very interesting dancer and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling. Together we will talk about her beginnings, contemporary dance and the important relationship to the audience.
Seized by the fever for dance from childhood on, dancer and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling tirelessly draws from her wealth of ideas and thoughts. In this way, she creates works that transcend borders and areas, and which repeatedly deal with the contact to the audience.

In workshops and conferences, she tries to reflect something of her passion for dance and to stimulate curiosity.

“We have to give the audience back the self-confidence that every individual perception of any form of art is right and great”.

E. Schilling

Hello everyone,

In case you are bored or sad that so many (all of our contracts) in the coming weeks have been cancelled, I wanted to invite you to join a collective choreographic enquiry that I have been initiating to keep both yours as well as my and our audience’s spirits up :)

It’s called ’Shoe Dances in pandemic times’ and is that simple: take your favorite shoes, boogie a bit and send me the video. I am putting all those short clips together for all our happiness!  I am publishing the shoe dances through instagram / facebook as well as on a film through my website and it’s all anonymous.

Silly little idea which hopefully brings joy :)

-> Dogs, babies etc. all welcome!

Lots of love and stay healthy,

Elisabeth
