5th October - 7th October 2020 professional training at Tanzbüro Basel CH

As a multidisciplinary Performance Ensemble, GAU Company offers trainings in different art forms, such as dance, theatre, fotography, music or acrobacy. Members of GAU Company give the trainings of their own artistic backrounds.

The focus of the dance classes held by Nadine Freisleben is directed towards the natural and instinctive movement repertory of the individual dancer´s body. We research on the capabilities of the body and the mind to move in a non-regimented space. We are getting rid of physical and psychological automatisms and judgements.

African Dance elements have a high influence on the technic. The body is being struc-tured within it´s weight into the space and connected to the environment. The build up of strength is working from the base, the feet on the floor, to the top, the head in the clouds. With awareness we loosen up the spine and the neck and strengthen the deep muscles. After we´ve found the permeability of the whole body, the exercises get very physical and energetic, still following the energetic build up.

The technic contains a mix of western contemporary dance, dance acrobatics, floorwork, popping-, and african dance elements.
