I want to explore movements through imagery, fantasies, and tasks. I want to find a connection between what we work on in the workshop and everyday life. How can we enter movement research from our own base, and how can this be an entering point to move in space, without any form of judgement? This workshop will be based on improvisation tasks, inspired by our performance But Then, We’ll Disappear (I’d Prefer Not To) by Frédérick Gravel.

Workshop leader: Nadege Kubwayo

About city moves

city moves is a workshop series in various urban locations. It is an outdoor celebration of the Tanzkongress with the citizens of Mainz in all weathers. The dance workshops will be led by local dancers from the Rhine-Main area and by international guests of the Tanzkongress. Proceeding from the themes, questions and choreographic approaches of their own practice, the invited artists create movement formats that bring experienced dancers and dance enthusiasts together in public space.

The city moves begin a few weeks before the Tanzkongress, and will be led by dancers of tanzmainz and the Staatstheater Mainz dance educator, Marina Grün. city moves takes place every day during the Tanzkongress. The workshop series is divided into city moves for children and city moves for all. It is free of charge for all participants.
