Dancing Conversations is a workshop-series of Tanzkongress 2022, that offers an insight into individual physical practices of dancers. Each session starts with an interview of an invited dancer, where they answer questions on what is driving their own practice; what it focuses on and what it wishes to share. This will be followed by a physical exploration of their particular practice, before finishing with a collective reflection and exchange between the teaching dancer and the participants about their shared experience.

This workshop starts on the floor with mobilising, stretching and coordination as well as stability exercises. Then it evolves into explosive dance phrases using all height levels. The technical emphasis lies in playing with, and moving between, relaxation and full body tension in order to move quickly and most effectively within one’s own individual possibilities. Other vital elements of Igor´s practice that will come to pass are the sensibilities of articulation and the awareness of the performative focus. This workshop is open to all those with dance experience.
