Chloé Beillevaire

In Depths

During her class Chloé proposes three phases: improvisation, assimilation and interpretation. The exploration of physical qualities and body states will be expanded by adding layers of rhythm and melodic dimensions on top of the physical research: observing the moments of silence, suspension and our physical intonation. Utilising the breath to amplify, intensify and to give birth to emotions, giving depth and meaning to our dance. This will lead to a choreoagraphic phrase which will then be torn apart, transformed and re-interpreted individually. The final game is an instantaneous group composition with a focus on sharing, exchanging, reacting and proposing. A new physical conversation each day, fostering creativity and the ability of listening.

Partnering

This Partnering workshop invites for practicing the foundations of movement with a partner: giving and taking weight, lifts and levers, leading and following, safety and trust, but first and foremost: fun!
In their classes, Kasia and Paulina create a space for shared joy, honest practice and intensive work. Next to technically demanding movement tasks and materials they also challenge movers regarding the topic of individual and collective safety during partnering: how to catch ourselves, how to avoid hurting our partners and how to listen precisely. Multifaceted, physical, joyful.

Partnering

Kasia and Paulina have been practicing and teaching partnering together since 2019. Constantly on the search for paths off the beaten track, they explore new approaches for functionality, aesthetics and dialogue within their joined dance & movement practice. A research on spontaneity, availability, elasticity, expressivity and communication. Next to this common work they also teach by themselves. Whereas Kasia is busy with Pilates and Improvisation (check her classes during the first week of DO Festival), Paulina proposes a highly physical contemporary dance practice. Next to their common and individual teaching, both are also busy as performers and creators.

Ad vitam æternam

Chloé Beillevaire

Ad vitam æternam, is the meeting of a bunch of individuals, thrown into a frantic race towards an unpredictable future. Out of breath and overwhelmed they try to take a break and to enjoy the present moment but, contaminated by each-other’s rhythms, they constantly fail and inevitably return to hyperactivity.
Ad vitam æternam wonders about time and about the proper use between speed and slowness as an alternative to our age of hyperactivity. In a world where performance, profitability, globalization, overconsumption, and information are the key words, it invites us to get tired of acceleration in order to enjoy times of rêverie and to lose track of time by letting imagination run wild.
Ad vitam æternam is a crossroad where, with humor and tenderness, rhythms and people bump into each other to understand how to move forward.

Why do we shake in the cold

Paulina Będkowska & Paul Simon

Where does a performance begin and where does the comfort zone of the human on stage end? Why does the audience watch the performance and not the performer the audience? Since when have performances about dance been in fashion? Where did the chairs in the audience room come from? How much effort must be put into being on stage for it to be called a performance? Who can fake it better, the performer or the audience? Why are we stressed by the presence of a group of people sitting on chairs in an arranged configuration?
Why do we shake from fear?
Why do we shake in the cold?

During the creative process we will address these and other questions about performing, the obvious topics and those with less sense. The project will explore the purpose and parameters of performing and the role of the audience. It will be based on the 'Nonsense Body' movement, which Paul and Paulina had the opportunity to develop and work on together in a previous production.
