In this class we will learn, deconstruct and discuss different elements that make up Tino Sehgal’s oeuvre from one of his closest collaborators. It will involve dancing, singing, conversations low and high as well as exploring different types of game structures. As Tino’s practice avoids all types of traditional archiving - no notes, photos, videos - his archive exists only in the bodies and minds of people who have previously interpreted his work. Having travelled the world teaching and interpreting Tino’s pieces for over ten years, Louise embodies the artist’s archive. She will happily share her knowledge of the basic movement techniques that underscore several of Tino’s works, the overall philosophy of the dramaturgical structures of the work as well as means and ways of manoeuvring these dramaturgical structures as an interpreter inside the work.
The class will be useful to dancers wanting to improve their improvisational and collaborative skills as well as choreographers and artists looking to learn from the structures and methods that Tino employs.
