MARK TOMPKINS (Paris) will be danceWEB Coach 2001!

„Ever since I started performing, I am improvising.“
American Mark Tompkins has been living and creating in France since 1973, where he created solos and participated in collective performances, e.g. with Harry Sheppard, Lila Green, Elsa Wolliaston, Hideyuki Yano, Steve Paxton and Lisa Nelson. In 1977 he initiated the series „glass houses“ and was co-founder of „Theater Autarcique“, which created projects in unoccupied houses. In 1983 Mark Tompkins founded his own company I.D.A. - International Dream Association. From 1998 to 2000 Cie. I.D.A. - Mark Tompkins was company in residence at Résidence Strasbourg Danse where „Remixamor“ (2000) was created. Parallel to his activities as artistic director, he continues a research in the art of improvisation through his teaching and his encounters with other dancers, musicians, light designers and visual artists.

ImPulsTanz and Mark Tompkins have gone a long way together: In 1989 Mark Tompkins presented his solo „La Valse de Vaslav“, an homage to Nijinsky, as well as „Nouvelles“, a piece for his company. Three years later he created „Witness“. „Channels“, a large scale urban fantasy for seven dancers and three musicians, was shown in 1995. Finally Mark Tompkins presented his solos „Icons“ and „Under My Skin“ among others in 1998.
All through these 12 years he has also been teaching at PRO SERIES and the INTERNATIONALEN TANZWOCHEN WIEN.
