Workshop Nov 2021 at SDC_PPY Twelfth Floor

In November, our Inspiring Dance workshops were conducted for Sydney Dance Company's Pre-Professional Year and led by Anton, a close creative collaborator with Tanja Liedtke, in particular for Tanja's work Twelfth Floor. The Pre-Professional Year dancers worked on character development, competition, commitment and embodiment and learnt a small section from the production. The workshop was preceded by a viewing of Life in Movement documentary and conversation with Shane Carroll about Tanja’s background and professional career. The workshop concluded with a live ZOOM discussion with Anton, Kristina Chan and Amelia McQueen (also collaborators on Twelfth Floor) facilitated by Shane Carroll, and a viewing of the full work (Twelfth Floor) and short Q&A with Anton.

danceWEB Scholarship Onur Agbaba 2021

Thank you Onur for such a enthusiastic report which shows us how much this scholarship helps to develop your skills.

Onur Experience report danceWEB Vienna 2021, Onur Agbaba
While doing danceWEB

14 hands are on my body, lifting me up in the air. 14 hands holding my body against gravity and carrying me across the room. I don't know where my head is, where my feet or my stomach are. This is a scene from Maria F. Scaroni's workshop Body&Material. And that's roughly how danceWEB felt to me. You don't know exactly where your head is, where your hands and feet, where your stomach is. Like being in the air all the time. To be in the air and not feel gravity is something of a utopia. And that's what danceWEB is. A utopia in a spatially and temporally limited space. And to be part of this utopia is a privilege. And I ́m more than grateful to had the possibility to be part of ImpulsTanz Festival 2021.
In front of me are fve notebooks that I scribbled over during my time in Vienna. Notes, drawings, poems, names, questions, love songs, etc. Everything I saw, heard, tasted, felt, smelled in these fve weeks, everything that my senses were occupied with during this time. And that was a lot:

A big thanks goes to Rio, Hanna, Sara, Lina, Anne & Frédéric <3 thank you! And a second big thanks goes to Tanja Liedtke Stiftung who made it possible for me to attend ImpulsTanz 2021 as part of danceWEB.
