Exploring the Inner

April 25, June 6 & August 22 of 2020 from 11 am to 5 pm at Kunstquartier Bethanien - Studio 2, Berlin


During this workshop series taking as a base the essential body work of Irmgard Bartenieff and having the overhead theme of the shoulders, we will take the time to explore our own body, our movement patterns and the connections and muscle chains within the body and also to change them. 

This intensive body work together with the Effort and Space Harmony knowledge of Rudolf Laban will allow us then to discover newly our own movement and dance expression and enjoy them in a playful way. It will also allow us to develop our creativity and to experience it together with a partner and with the whole group.

Anyone with specific movement experience practice is welcome -  the workshops are even for movement experts extremely enriching! Each workshop forms a self-contained unit with different thematic focuses each time.

Price: 55€ Early Bird via bank transfer up to seven days beforehand. Afterwards: 60 € per bank transfer or on the spot.

Bartenieff Fundamentals Introductory course

The Bartenieff Fundamentals are offering an effective base for all sorts of dance styles, especially for contemporary dance and improvisation. We will train the deep connections of energy lines, fascial trains and bony landmarks. We use breath support, spacial intent, three dimensional movement and clear movement initiation to find connectivity in the body. This makes the dance more lighter, organic, dynamic and joyful. 

The Fundamentals are a bodywork technique that offers insides into individual movement patterns and biography. Therefore we can use the individual patterns in dance technique and improvisation and start to create more possibilities.

The introductory course in Laban Movement Studies (20 hrs) is one of the pre-requisite for the EUROLAB CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS IN LABAN/BARTENIEFF MOVEMENT STUDIES.


Date and Place:

March 27 - 29, 2020

Laban Movement Studies - Workshop

Laban movement studies (also known as “Labananalysis”) are a tool to capture the variety and complexity of movement. They explore the categories of body, space, shape and dynamics (effort), to identify personal preferences, to increase expressiveness and to develop creative skills. Dance improvisation, set movement sequences and feedback discussions are included in the course to bring the practical work into a theoretical perspective.

The introductory course in Laban Movement Studies (20 hrs) is one of the pre-requisite for the EUROLAB CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS IN LABAN/BARTENIEFF MOVEMENT STUDIES.
