Intensive Workshop Moving through the forces of physics

Von der Samadhyana Company mit Danilo Cardoso and Ching-Mei Huang

DansArt Theater  -  DansArt Tanznetworks, Am Bach 11, Bielefeld


Max. 20 Personen /Niveau

Uhrzeit und Niveau:

Anfänger: 10:00-13:00 Uhr

Professionell:  14:00-17:00 Uhr


Im Workshop “Moving through the forces of physics”, den Danilo Cardoso in zusammenarbeit mit Ching-Mei Huang entwickelt hat,  vermitteln sie ein grundlegendes Verständnis der physikalischen Kräfte, die beim Tanzen eine Rolle spielen. Die Teilnehmer entwickeln ein Bewusstsein dafür, wie Reibungskraft, Gravitationskraft und Zugkraft zueinander stehen.

Ziel ist es, die Grundlagen des Floorwork-Contact-Improvisation-Verständnisses zu vermitteln und den Schülern die Möglichkeit zu geben, dies am eigenen Körper zu erproben.


The workshop developed by Danilo Cardoso and the artist Ching-Mei Huang, convey a basic understanding of the physical forces involved in dancing. The participants develop an awareness of how frictional force, gravitational force and pulling force are related to each other. The aim is to convey the basics of floorwork / contact / improvisation and to give students the opportunity to improve this on their own body. The workshop is a research which aims the didactics of the body awareness within space-time towards dance.

It is inspired by the Movement Analysis from Rudolf Laban, combining the principles of “space, time and energy” to structure a language in improvisation and contact with the idea of using it parallel to the floorwork to wider the possibilities of understanding and dealing with physical forces. The Workshop starts with building up the body awareness by breathing through a sequence of postures, which will mainly be focus on relaxation and expansion. Afterwards, it explores the spacial awareness by practicing the motion through the lower, middle and high level, experiencing their 3 dimensional planes, and the spiral transition between them. In the second part we will present a methodology of “contact” through denominations and the principles of physics. After achieving a common language between teachers and students, they are going to practice exercises of improvisation, weight sharing and lifting. Once we experiment the “contact improvisation”, where the body and motion communicates clearly between partners, it will be time to cool down and to explain through the principles of “space, time and energy”, our understanding of dynamics and movement quality. In the final part of the workshop, the group will apply what they have practiced in a conscious improvisation, with the idea of creating common understandings between each individual and the group.
