rehearsals in april

Every Thursday (for at least 5 Thursdays starting this Thursday)
I will relive the time when I was dancing in the carpet of our living room (ca. 1989, San Pedro, Philippines). This is where I started to improvise and danced for nobody.

You are welcome to join me and explore what I call ‘tada da da da da teknofolklorica’. I want to share techiques and homemade stories for inspiration. Imitation, Appropriation and Repetition will be our teacher. Limits and Crisis will be our school.

And when we are tired, we can have a drink after and discuss what just happened. I prepared some themes from which we could frame our conversation.

I. AD LIBITUM
a first ingredient of dance

II. WABI-SABI
cycles and dualities

III. ZUFALL in der RAUM
potentials and possibilities

IV. GAMBIARRA no PERRENGUE
temporary use

V. TADA
leftovers

Each session will be recorded. The video is used as a tool for immediate feedback and inspiration. And as a document in itseld. Potentially, it can be used for something else. I will announce news in person when things are a little bit more crystallized.

You may invite friends. Especially those who play with music.

I offer these sessions as gifts. So has Agora Rollberg who generously gifted us with the use of leftover time and space. You may give something back ad libitum.

Bring your dreams and if you have, nightmares too.

Love,
Pepe
