Ultima Vez Vocabulary
We will study different materials from several shows by the company Ultima Vez under the direction of choreographer Wim Vandekeybus in order to understand the most important aspects of these works. We will get familiarised with concepts like risk, trust and instinct. These tasks will allow us to discover where we stand, how we dance, where our limits are and how we can develop further.
Veiling the creation process as act of resistance
This workshop aims to develop working methods that stimulate research, practice and discourse. The participants will work on their own projects, interests or concerns. The practical exercises will be combined with negotiations that encourage the learning process, thus evacuating the conventional forms of transmission and creating a common place for the exchange.
ARTISTBIO: German Jauregui
German Jauregui is a choreographer, dancer and teacher based in Brussels. In 1998 he joined the company Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus, where he worked as a dancer for more than 10 years, in the creation and touring of 8 pieces. Since 2015, he works as a movement assistance and rehearsal director for the company. In 2007, he started to develop his own work with the creation of the pieces Isaac (2007), Sunset on Mars (2009), Confession (2013). As a guest choreographer he created the pieces Testamento (2010) for the Festival EINCE in Guadalajara (Mexico), Esbozo (2010) for the Centro de las Artes in San Luis de Potosí (Mexico), Tres silencios (2011) for the company Date Danza in Granada (Spain), Albatross (2016) for the collective 605 in Vancouver (Canada). He often collaborates with different choreographers, theatre makers and circus companies. In parallel, he teaches workshops internationally at festivals and dance centres such as ImPulsTanz (Vienna), Circuit-Est (Montreal), Atelier de Paris (Paris), Russia Dance Academy (St. Petersburg), Tsekh festival (Moscow), among others.
In 2016, German Jauregui and Antia Diaz started an artistic collaboration that includes creation, research and teaching practices. They co-directed the pieces Isaac y Diola (2016) and Rassemblement (2019). From these creations as well as from their previous experiences, they began a reflection on the creation process, its methods and forms of organisation. All these practices have given rise to the “An approach to a creation process“ workshop which is held in different centers, festivals and universities such as the University of Music and Dance of Koln (Germany), Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance of Munich (Germany), SEAD-Salzburg experimental academy of dance (Austria) and Marosi Festival (Italy), among others.
