Dancing with Dedication & Ease

3-day Live/Online Workshop with Bettina Neuhaus

Mo December, 28 – Wed 30, 2020 as part of WINTER TANZ 2020/21 Tanzfabrik Berlin

As an integrative approach to movement SRT is recognized as a significant way to experience and empower the creative self in the act of dancing, tapping into one’s own imagination, intuition and wisdom. Poetic imagery and hands-on studies facilitate deep and more nuanced kinaesthetic experience of movement. Noticing as a first step for change and allowing movement to happen are key to this practice that provides specific tools to access effortlessness and multi-directional alignment, depth, presence and freedom in movement and stillness. During these 3 days we will engage with the basic principles of Releasing as a way to access the intuitive and poetic body in motion. In the on-going interplay between inner and outer awareness we will find compelling simplicity and significance in our dancing.

Please note: Due to the current situation, the workshop will take place, if possible live under the then current measures, or online. Therefore, the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 20 for the time being.
More detailed information about the measures will be continuously updated on the website and communicated by e-mail shortly before the workshop starts.

Bettina Neuhaus

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.
