Looking Back and Ahead
Anatomical journeys, danced research
From my research and many years of experience as a choreographer, lecturer and performer in the field of contemporary dance, as well as from the search for subtle traces in the body in the context of biodynamic cranio-sacral bodywork, the desire arose to connect both in a playful but still sound way.
On the one hand, we will make anatomical journeys from the embryonic phase to the present in the form of experiential anatomy, on the other hand we will sense movement sequences that we have already perceived before, or develop sequences that may possibly go new ways through the special approach of this research.
In addition, we will develop and experiment with the following tools:
- How can I incorporate stored body biographies into my choreographic/dance research?
- How is change in the presence facilitated in a duet and with which preliminary exercises?
- How do I interact choreographically with different energetic levels in the room?

Up Close and Personal – an Intergenerational Encounter 55+
Art is obliged to raise the voice!
After a warm-up together, where contacts are already sought after and found through bodywork, we explore through improvisational images: crazy states, common fears, boundaries and desires as well as playful elements that can be artistically inspiring for all ages.
Older participants thereby develop solos for young women and men. And then young participants create duets for older couples.
In a "speed dating"-session, different generations encounter and meet each other on an intellectual level. Every generation is an "expert" in their environment, their time, their moment in life.
"Each generation is characterised by a wealth of age-related peculiarities that manifest in physical, biographical and historical features. The curiosity of humans for other people is something that lasts for life. Find yourself or notice that there are differences. What are they like? Are they enriching, scary, exhilarating? The encounter of young and old keeps on stirring!"
Special Deal: Bring a family member or friend from a different generation for free!
In this case please book your workshop directly at the Workshop Office!
ARTISTBIO: Nicole Berndt-Caccivio
Since 2004 she is a practitioner of Cranio Sacral Therapy/Osteopathy. Nica lives in Berlin (DE) and Biel (CH), is married, and thinks that getting older should be seen as inspirational and not as a deficit. In addition to the intensive cooperation with aspiring dance students and choreographers in the professional field, she develops interesting, demanding choreographies with amateur dancers all over Europe in order to be able to accompany them professionally on their way into the public realm.
