A dance research project directed
by Bettina Neuhaus and Marisa Grande
September October 2006, Amsterdam
DANCING IMAGES" is a
research project, which focuses on our natural capacity
to perceive and meet the world in images, and how to
use this capacity for dancing and composing.
We practice movement while focusing on specific aspects
of our physicality in order to unlock and unravel the
images that are contained in our body.
We investigate the process of how an image triggers
movement and how movement evokes images.
Becoming more aware of this dynamic dialogue between
movement and image will inspire and sharpen our compositional
choices. During the project participants are guided
to make an individual "body print" consisting
of different shapes, colours, words and textures - as
a visual expression of how we perceive and imagine within
These "body prints" are used as a guideline
to develop different compositional material, which will
form a "score". Based on that we develop a
final presentation that will be shared with an invited
Bettina Neuhaus and Marisa
takes place over a series of 3 weekends.
The project is open to professional and non-professional
dancers and movers with previous experience in improvisation
and with an interest in developing their dance and compositional
skills within an intensive work process.
The project will take place for the first time in September
and October 2006 in Amsterdam.
