WORKSHOPS

Silks

Saturday 10 - 12

Christine will teach a technical silks workshop.

Sunday 17.30 - 19.30

Christine's workshop will focuses on choreography and sequences, and work on movement quality in the air. Be prepared to learn beautiful fluid sequences and focus on your own performance quality as you execute moves.

Christine Wunderlich is a canadian born dancer, aerialist, instructor and choreographer based in Berlin. It is her passion to combine various movement art forms creating a fusion to "dance in the air" and incorporating this into performance, choreography and coaching alike.

In his workshop Moritz combines mobility with dynamic sequences on the static trapeze.
After the warm-up, the workshop will focus on particularly dynamic combinations, drops and turns. Awareness of a trapezoid-specific movement language should also be sharpened through small improvisation tasks.

Students are expected to have prior knowledge of trapeze.

Trapeze

teacher - Moritz Haase

straps

This workshop is based on the exploration of movement and the awareness of our body in suspension in one or two arms.
These ideas will be applied to some basic principles of aerial work, such as suspension, total elevation, extension, inversion, stretching, and rotation. .
We will take a deep look at the basic positions for work in the straps, arriving at each position in an anatomical and comfortable way for our body.
The aim is to find the most natural way of moving in the air and to inspire aerial artists to integrate this new awareness into their own artistic approach.


***SUITABLE FOR ALL AERIALISTS (Silks, Rope, Trapeze...). YOU SHOULD HAVE A STRONG INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED LEVEL IN YOUR DISCIPLINE.***

Rope

Aissatou, Friday 10 -12

This two hour workshop will work on different climbs, beats , flexibility and dynamic tricks. Trying to find our inner and natural movements in the air.  We will create a sequence combining the different elements we have worked on and search for our rhythm, extension and contraction in the air. 

Sarah and Liz, Sunday 10 -12

The 6-Pack and other myths: which muscles do the real work and why you should care.

This workshop is a crash-course in functional anatomy in aerial arts.

Though part of the focus during this 2-hour workshop will by on applying functional anatomy concepts specifically to our work on a vertical apparatus (rope and silks) ALL aerialists are welcome to join, as the anatomical knowledge gained can be transferred to all apparatuses.

We will look closely at the hip and shoulder joints – and all the muscles which stabilise and move them – and learn how we can get life-long use (in the air) from these extremely versatile and vulnerable ball-in-socket joints. We will distinguish between our stabiliser and our mover muscles and apply this knowledge directly onto the rope/silks – from the most basic position of hanging in the air from our hands, to oft-repeated movements such as beats, and more advanced tricks such as drops and single-arm moves.

All levels are welcome, but a descent grip on a vertical apparatus is essential as we will be holding positions such as hanging from the hands for extended periods of time in order to assess and integrate physical cues.

Aerial equipment will be provided but please bring a yoga mat for the floor exercises.

@aissatou_casas

Aïssatou started as a competitive ice skater at just age 5. She then went on to study theatre at the Nancy Tuñon School of Dramatic Arts, before moving to Brussels discovering contemporary dance, trapeze and the silks. She is a member of the contemporary circus company Fuego Rojo.

hoop

Workshop Friday "learning/improving rolls around the hoop and start of dynamic moves"

In this intermediate workshop we'll work on different rolls around the hoop, like ellbow rolls or lion rolls, focusing on getting them smooth and working towards variations. We'll also start on dynamic moves like hand swings, knee swings or the butterfly drop, focussing on the technique and principles behind it to make you able to work further on your own.

Please bring tight fit clothes as well as protective layers (for example for ellbows, waist, knees,...).

 

Workshop Sunday "advanced dynamic moves"
We look at your swings on hands and knees and improve them looking at biomechanics behind it. Don't worry, it'll be very visual and physical with a background knowledge of why actually an action helps to improve a swing - or why not. From this we'll work further on advanced dynamic tricks like hand swings with twists or salto, knees half turns etc.
Please bring tight fit cloth and if personally needed extra protection.
