Cliffordstudio, Cliffordstraat 38, Amsterdam

Open to dancers, performers and movement lovers of all backgrounds!

Places are limited. Thank you for signing up before September 6, 2020!

In this 1-day workshop we’ll use poetic imagery and principles of Skinner Releasing Technique as a doorway into into dancing and composing.

When we become aware of our relationship with the ground and tune into our breath, allowing it to expand through the entire body, we find volume, weight and buoyancy in movement and at rest. Giving into this ongoing cycle of gently filling and emptying we sink deeper into our inner bodily world and yet open further to our surroundings.
We become more receptive to the subtle movements and stillness in our own inner landscape and in the space we are in. By giving attention to what is already there, stillness can become a gate to our imagination, intuition and unforeseen possibilities of choice that lead us into captivating dancing and composing alone and with others.

We will take care of the current Covid 19 regulations so that everyone can work at ease.

About the Author Bettina Neuhaus

Bettina Neuhaus is a dance artist, teacher and mentor based in Amsterdam. She is a certified SRT teacher at both Introductory (2004) and Ongoing (2011) levels. She studied dance at the Theatre School Amsterdam and holds an MA Creative Practice Dance Professional Pathway, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in partnership with Independent Dance (London). Her choreographic and performative work centers around solo work and collaborations with dancers, musicians, visual artists and poets – often investigating the relationship between the tangible, multi-sensorial dancing body with its inherent imagination, intelligence and poetry and its social and ecological context. Inspired by her earlier studies in music and movement education at the Folkwang University for Arts (Essen 1985-89), the collaboration with musicians and sound artists, and a fluid use of movement, voice and text as a performer on stage have become a main artistic interest. In 2014, together with dance artist Ursula Sabatin, she initiated ‘TanzuferInternationa’l, a platform for dance- and music-performances; the productions ‘SWIFT’, ‘plot’ and ‘creatura’ have been presented across Europe. Her lecture demonstrations ‘The unfolding image – the role of perception, imagination and image for dancing and composing’ (2015), ‘La danse comme dédicace à l’espace’ (2015) and the installation ‘Material Self Material Other’ in collaboration with Vanessa Grasse (2016) have been presented at numerous academies, festivals and symposia in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK and Paraguay. Selected recent performance work includes ‘creatura’, with Ursula Sabatin and Paolo Cingolani (2018-19), ‘Vapour Sketches’ with Eva Karczag (2015/18) and ‘cumulUS’, a performative installation with Akemi Nagao (since 2016). Together with Eva Karczag she currently presents the lecture performance ‘Along the lines’ at international festivals and academies and is working with dancers Maya M. Carroll and Gianna Grünig on the trio ‘Triune Heart’ (Berlin/ Bern, 2019/20). Since 2017 Bettina is dancer in ‘MESH’, an outdoor participatory performance for 10 dancers, exploring playful rituals of togetherness in public spaces choreographed by Vanessa Grasse and touring internationally. Bettina's classes draw from and intertwine elements of Instant Composition, SRT and mindful body practices enhancing the experience of aliveness, creativity and interconnectedness to ourselves and others through the act of dancing and composing. She has been teaching and developing ‘Inner Flows – Outer Flows: Streaming withBody and Voice’ – a teaching series combining Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening® practice with Skinner Releasing Technique – since 2015 together with American/Dutch musician and sound artist Sharon Stewart. She teaches SRT and Instant Composition at major academies, independent studios and festivals across Europe and South America such as Theatre School Amsterdam, Dance Academy ArtEZ Arnhem, Codarts University for the arts Rotterdam, HTZ Berlin, Independent Dance London, CIRA Strasbourg, The National Center for Dance Bucharest, Design Academy Eindhoven, University Strasbourg, Instituto Bellas Artes Asunción, Tanzufer Bregenz, Kinitiras Athens, Studio Burdag, Improvisation Xchange Festival Berlin, Vielfalten Festival Ludwigsburg, Imprévu Festival Strasbourg.
