    Duration 2 H.

In Jan Martens' production any attempt will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones, the resistance of dance and the power of diversity are vital elements. In two workshops, the participants will revisit a part of any attempt's creative process. One workshop is open level for dancers with intermediate dance experience and the other one for dance professionals.

The participants will work with the complex score of Gorecki's Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings Op.40, which acts as a unifying pillar for the 17 movement solos in any attempt will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones.

Each participant will be invited to create their own short solo movement phrases by translating the music (its rhythm, energy, and general feeling) into, and with their own body. The workshop will focus on precision, coordination, rhythm, musicality, and the feeling of moving together with a group in the most individual way possible. The workshops will be held by dancer Lia Poole.

Wed 13.9. at 16–18. Open level. FULLY BOOKED!
Thu 14.9. at 11–13
