“Danse Macabre” in CK: Movement Concept® - Capoeira – Butoh
This practical workshop gives an insight into the working method of the
El Haddawi Dance Company. Additionally we will work with material from the dance
theatre performance„Danse Macabre“, which will be staged in summer 2016 in the
Czech Republic. We invite all participants of the workshop to dance with us.
The following three methods are turning into a synthesis within the work of the El
Haddawi Dance Company and evolve into an impressive dance and theatre
language for a professional dance theatre production.
Movement Concept®: A Dance Theatre System founded my Ingo Taleb Rashid,
including elements of modern dance, classical dance, acting and martial arts.
Capoeira: It is a Brazilian martial art and dance form with African roots.
A main element is called „Ginga“ a swaying step from side to side, which leads into
defence and attack movements. Capoeira is performed with live music.
Butoh: Is an avant-garde Japanese dance art with roots in the Japanese tradition
and an intensive contemporary connotation. Butoh goes beyond the boundaries of
common dance convention and aesthetics and works a lot with improvisation
resulting from self-reflection of the dancer.
