Presence, Improvisation & Composition

Presence, Improvisation & Composition
is back, now as a weekly open-class series starting from March! 

All are welcome to join. Every Tuesday from 17.30-19.00h at the ZéróPlusz Dance Studio at Jurányi. 

This class develops improvisation, movement, and composition skills through collective exercises based on the Viewpoints method and a non-judgmental approach to creative pracitices.

It gives participants tools for developing a larger movement vocabulary, for working with others in improvisations, and for creating original compositions. We will engage in different exercises that will benefit collaborative work and awareness of a shared space. 

Viewpoints is a system that allows us to name the elements that constitute a performance in an easy and accessible way. By shifting our focus, we start to perceive and name what is already there. This experiential process provides us with tools to then produce performances or improvisations that make conscious use of its constitutive elements. 

While the classes are grounded in the Viewpoints method, they also draw from contemporary dance and physical theatre practices. We will methodically build a sense of readiness, both on the individual and group level. Grounded in a shared movement practice, we will learn to better respond physically within improvisations. 

These classes are suitable for all levels, regardless of previous experience with performance. It’s a class for actors, dancers, dramaturges, theatermakers, performers, directors, visual artists, choreographers, and anyone else who has an interest in performing arts. 

One class: 2.000,- Ft
Four class pass: 7.500,- Ft (to be used in 5 weeks) 
Eight class pass: 14.000,- Ft (to be used in 10 weeks)
