Technical exercises and improvisations with clear framework will be the starting point for the work in a group, as couples or individually. We will look for creative impulses that, when released, offer us new possibilities for achievement. We will observe how, sometimes, extreme qualities maintain a balanced tension, that the tension attracts attention, and that many times, silence speaks.
"Teaching requires a dynamic interplay between what is happening inside the teacher's mind and what happens with the group in the room. The act of teaching and my professional artistic practice has for long been interconnected: They are in constant relation and evolving together. I often borrow ideas from my artistic work according to how relevant they are on a pedagogical level. I then invent work sessions and exercises that support the mechanisms and technical needs of the scenic idea. I select concepts that can be taken out of context and appropriated by other bodies, other minds – keeping the essence but also becoming filters for new, freshly arising materials. Teaching has undeniably become an important part of my professional life. Now, I strongly believe that the relationships between the act of teaching and one’s artistic practice is often undervalued."
