Open call: Training Total Hamburg @ K3

K3 – Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg

Training Total December 15-19, 2014

Open Call for dance artist and dance educators for a workshop week on Professional Dance Training

TRAINING TOTAL is a continued education and workshop form and refers to the preceding Projects Treffen Total in summer 2010 and Treffen Total Lokal in February 2012 by Hamburg based choreographer Jenny Beyer. It allows an open space for collective work and reflection on the subject of professional training in contemporary dance. Students of the Master program Contemporary Dance Education (MA CoDE) from Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and Hamburg based dance artist / teachers together with Jenny Beyer, Prof. Ingo Diehl and Kerstin Kussmaul will interrogate basic topics regarding professional training in contemporary dance:

How could one define “technique” in dance? What are the expectations linked to participating in a professional training? What do dancers take with them from the training? How far is a physical training reflected in the body and how does it mirror back into the artistic work? What kind of information should a training or class description contain?

Within the scope of the week MA CoDE students will teach open professional trainings in the mornings as a shared start into the day.

For the workshop week we are looking for creators in dance and dance teachers/educators, who are interested in an intense exchange on the subject of Professional Trainings and who would like to collaborate in programming the week with their personal perspectives, suggestions and propositions. Training Total will be planned and performed with and for ca. 30 participants and invited experts. Participation comprises usage of studio space within K3 – Centre for Choreography, offered trainings and one hot meal per day. Possible costs for travel and housing can not be funded.

Application with a short letter of motivation and CV until October 15, 2014 to

Training Total is a cooperation between MA CoDE / Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Frankfurt am Main and K3.
