Movement Qualities and Textures
in Choreography and Improvisation

Elisabeth’s artistic research is concerned with continuously researching and finding new and unknown moment qualities and textures. She moreover experiments with how these can be set choreographically in time and space and in relation to each other.
The first part of this workshop will be a dance class, in which Elisabeth, inspired by her work, will prepare an articulate, attentive and curious body to move with individual instinct through precise alignment, flow of weight, use of time and dynamic playfulness.
The second part of this workshop focusses on individual creativity and curiosity. By introducing exploratory tasks as well as set material, the positive and energetic environment will encourage discovering the body’s full potential through facility, strength, efficiency and a creative mind.

Elisabeth is a dancer and dance maker. Having danced for Scottish Dance Tehatre and Candoco Dance Company (amongst others) she also interpreted repertoire by Trisha Brown and Sasha Waltz. Elisabeth’s has taught numerous workshops and classes for students of all ages and levels in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Germany and Luxembourg for institutions such as 3-CL Luxembourg, Skolen for Moderne Dans, Copenhagen, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Sasha Waltz & Guest Kindertanzkompanie, London Contemporary Dance School’s youth company SHIFT, SEAD Salzburg amongst others.

Simone Mousset and Elisabeth Schilling have started their new collaboration ‘Impressing the Grand Duke’. The piece will premiere as part of ‘Les Emergence No.3’ at Trois C-L, Centre de Creation Choréographique Luxembourgeois in April 2016.

Impressing the Grand Duke” is a multidisciplinary performance combining dance, video projection and theatre. The piece is a satirical comment on the sociocultural context of young artists who are labelled as “”emerging””. It aims at critically exploring the politics behind art making and the institutionalised and individual powers that exert pressure on artists in the process of art making.

Avec OPTIKE, Anu Sistonen se consacre à un projet de recherche sur la mise en lumière et en espace de son langage corporel et artistique. En compagnie de Brice Durand, créateur lumière, elle proposera des pistes pour que la lumière retranscrive le mouvement de façon visuelle. L’idée est de confronter le mouvement dansé à la notion de frontières, de limites spatiales, de lignes de cassure. Le temps de travail permettra d’explorer, d’expérimenter, de manipuler et de développer un langage corporel.

Partenaires : TROIS C-L, Mierscher Kulturhaus, FEDER – Fonds de Développement Régional dans le cadre du programme INTERREG IV-A Grande Région
