International Dance Day with Carl Knif Company at Dance House Helsinki

Join us on April 29th, 2024 for a celebration of dance with contemporary dance group Carl Knif Company! In honour of the day, we are organising a workshop and an open rehearsal!

BREATH – GAZE – SPACE: workshop for professionals and students of performing arts

Dance House Helsinki rehearsal studio, Kaapelinaukio 3, 14.00 - 17.00

Explore Carl Knif's somatic method "BREATH – GAZE – SPACE", designed to bring artists into a delicate interplay and spatial awareness. The method is the result of many years of choreographic work and draws inspiration from meditation, yoga and pilates. It was originally developed in collaboration with Carl Knif Company’s dancers as a choreographic tool and performance method.

The method uses the phy­si­cal bo­dy as a star­ting point. As one be­co­mes awa­re of their breat­hing, one be­co­mes awa­re of the bo­dy and its in­ner spa­ce. Th­rough the breath one al­so be­co­mes awa­re of the ga­ze, which pla­ces them in con­tact with the sce­nic spa­ce and with ot­her peop­le in the spa­ce. Th­rough this the form and rhythm of a per­for­man­ce can be de­ve­lo­ped.

The exercises aim at a holistic and personal expression of movement, and the method’s simple instructions and clear progressive structure make it great for anyone interested in dance and their own movement expression. The workshop is guided by dancer Terhi Vai­ma­la.

Price: 10 € (a limited amount of pay-what-you-can spots also available)
