German Tanztheater with Adrian Look at The Place

Term dates:
25 April – 04 July

Day: Tuesdays
Time: 6.30 – 8pm
Tickets:
http://www.theplace.org.uk/whats-on/german-tanztheater-level-12-adrian-look

Level 1-2: This class is for students who hold a basic understanding in contemporary or ballet and would like to develop their skills. The class will work further on technique and learning the dynamics of movement phrasing, building confidence and expanding knowledge and performance skills.

Class description:

A contemporary dance theatre class, inspired by Pina Bausch and the beautiful strength and artistic expression of German Tanztheater.

Following the tradition of German Tanztheater, we start with a contemporary barre consisting of easy foot exercises, flowing arm sequences, swings and shorter choreography-based exercises to place the body and prepare it for centre work.
The exercises and sequences in this class are very precise in dynamic, shape and intention.

The main goal, however, is to use the technique in order to express an emotional state. The class aims to let go of any unnecessary extras and consequently strives to use conscious and meaningful movements. This class is expressive, strong and artistic and will allow you to visualize your emotional state, let yourself go and experience your art on a deep level best described as: ‘Loose yourself in Dance.’

 Sisyphus’ Wife

Friday, 29.01.2016 / 8pm

Flyer 2

Resolution2016

Synopsis

 LAM Dance Company will perform the brand new piece “Sisyphus’ Wife” on 29.01.2016 at The Place as part of Resolution 2016.

Maria Ines Sousa and Adrian Look will perform a duet telling a story of despair, purpose, choice and acceptance of fate; inspired by the 19th century Rückert poems about ‘Weltschmerz’ and ‘The Myth of Sisyphus’ by Albert Camus.

In the myth Sisyphus is punished for his self-aggrandisement by being forced to roll a boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, repeating this action for eternity. Despite Sisyphus’ eternal labour, Camus concluded: “One must imagine Sisyphus happy. Each atom of that stone, each mineral flake of that night-filled mountain, in itself forms a world.  All Sisyphus’ silent joy is contained therein. His fate belongs to him. The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart.”
Adrian Look, director and choreographer, has set the piece in 2016, developing the eternal nature of the myth with the idea that Sisyphus is still engaged in his labour somewhere today. Using Gustav Mahler’s “Rückert songs” and Max Richter’s “Vivaldi recomposed”, the piece explores Sisyphus’ inner conflict – the seemingly futile nature of a task, which also provides him with a sense of purpose – along with his unknowing wife’s battle for his burdened soul.

Following the premiere at Resolution 2016, the piece will be developed into a short film, to be directed by Cristobal Catalan. By being set in the North of England, the film will make comparisons between the myth and the industrial parts of this region, referencing the relationship between labour, identity and gender in a changing world.

First pictures are available here.

Crowdfunding- Campaign

www.gofundme.com/LAM-Dance-Company

LAM Dance Company is asking for your support for our piece SICK AND TIRED as part of Resolution! 2015

We tried to get public funding for this project, but unfortunately without success.

That is why we have started a crowdfunding- campaign to cover the basic costs for this production.

Any donation will help us incredibly much on our mission to establish German ‘Tanztheater’ in London.

The emotional and expressive approach of our pieces seems to be a great new addition to London’s dance world. We found a niche and that is a great situation for us. Nevertheless we need supporters like you, who believe in the same vision.

This is the time to support us. We are very grateful for every donation.

Thank you very much!
