English Version 11. Internaitonal Eurythmics Workshop

RHYTHMIK 100 Hellerau
International Rhythmics Workshop DALCROZE 2011 
1 to 4 September 2011 at the Festspielhaus Hellerau

Ever since the laying of the cornerstone of the Festspielhaus, on April 22, 1911, in Hellerau near Dresden a hundred years of changeful history have passed. Shaped by „Dalcroze and the others“, the Festspielhaus Hellerau offered an international Forum for spectacular, artistic ideas during its prime from 1911 to 1914. The gymnastics and rhythmics schools in Hellerau have left their mark worldwide. Hundreds of students gained a rhythmics diploma or a gymnastics training in Hellerau and went on to translate these principles into dance, theater, pedagogy and therapy. On the occasion of the jubilee, the challenge will be to explore this eventful period starting from 1911 until the present of a united Europe in order to set new impulses.

RHYTHMIK 100 Hellerau offers a forum for exchange, information and presentation. Workshops with international rhythmics teachers will be held within the framework of the festival as well a performance on the Appia stage, the first release of several compositions works, a World Rhythmic Café® and an exhibition dealing with “Appia, Dalcroze, Le Corbusier und die Anderen”. Next to the international rhythmics training schools, several primary schools and kindergartens from Dresden will also present themselves with the rhythmics project „Einen Stern für jedes Kind / A star for every child“.

    Dieter Schnebel Sprechende Körper. Körper-Sprache – Version 2011 [Speaking Bodies. Body-Language]
    Concept and direction: Annette Jahns, Christian KestenBrief description: Schnebel’s piece uses body movements as compositorial material. An intensive body work will train the isolation of minimalistic muscle movements, which will be rhythmically performed before extended to complex composed movement sequences. The sounds of costumes (different fabrics, paper) and breathing will be amplified through contact microphones.
    Requirements: some experience in theatre, dance, performance or movement work is appreciated.
    Rehearsal start: Tue 23 August 2011II
    Manos Tsangaris
    Reisen, Kochen, Zoo… (Vivarium – Traveling, Cooking, Zoo….“)
    for movements in space, voices, instruments and light

    A composition on the occasion of the 100-year anniversary of the Festspielhaus Hellerau.
    Production, area: Manos Tsangaris
    Musical Director: Lennart Dohms Musik: Ensemble El Perro Andaluz
    Scene: participants of DALCROZE 2011 and further actors

    A play covering civilizing (basic-) mental states, tectonics, friction, movement and tranquillization, reputed movement and preliminary tranquillization.The play is divided into three parts: 1. Travel – a permanent passage; 2. Bones – hearth, homeliness? 3. Zoo – the translation of the wilderness, freedom. The creature in the transpose square, examined while sitting on a couch, is our wilderness. It will turn into a description of head space!

    Cast: actors, movement in space: rhythmic participants, if possible by using istrumental/vocal abilities and experience! (as well as experience in the fields of acrobatics, equilibristics, juggling – please specify) and actors that were cast („crowd“).
    2 a. „Soloists“ should be qualified artistically and representationally, felxible, self-responsible and should also have a strong interest in realizing the play (which also includes the ability to identify the score) istead of automatically lapse into clichées.
    Rehearsal start: Wed 24 August 2011
    2 b. „Actors“ that match the description given in 2 a.
    Rehearsal start: Sun 28 August 2011
