Michael Getman about the workshop:

Being a good dancer does not mean becoming a choreographer. Fortunately, the craft of composition can be acquired and mastered. This studio practice will help you reflect on individual creation when you wish to choreograph a dance which you will perform. Over the course of the workshop, we’ll address elementary questions with regard to working on a solo, from collecting material, through the creation process and the substance and execution of the piece. Striving to complete the task by yourself entails many questions and issues to reflect on.


Where is a starting point?
What do I wish to explore?
What is a performance space?
How to share my experience with others?
What do I want on stage?
How to perform what I’ve created?

Being in the body. Being in the mind. Being in the space. In time. Recognizing the situation, being recognized, being looked at, 
looking at the situation as it is. We will be shifting the awareness between the aspect of making dance and being in dance. We will practice and focus on how you can unite and shift through three sources: mental, physical, and emotional. Composition and presence. Being and doing.

The 12-hour studio practice is a lead-in into process-based exploration. It can be applied to any kind of dance, performance, form or style. However, we would like to encourage you to search for inspiration in the works of painters, architects, visual artists, musicians and choreographers. The concept has been used in Michael’s and Iwona’sstage works (developed together and separately), as well as in cooperation with other artists of different fields. The practice will end up with the public presentation of your solo as our great wish is to meet others, who would like to work with us in the future.
