DansArt workshop with Baris Mihci

AXIS SYLLABUS Dans.art workshop in Antwerp with BARIS MIHCI
Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th March 2010
9.30 – 14.00

Dans.art is an initiative by Passerelle vzw in partnership with Retina Dance Company, Cultuurcentrum Hasselt and Wisper Gent. Retina’s Dans.art is an intensive workshop opportunity for dancers and choreographers to work with reknown Axis Syllabus teacher Baris Mihci supported by Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen.

The Axis Syllabus’ focus lies in the human body in motion. Like a bag of skills, a box of tools, a container where you can put all the information concerning movement. The study of the body under an anatomical and bio-mechanical filter with its impact on movement. One aim is to optimize the use of kinetic energy in order to find more efficiency in dynamic movement, prevent injury and learn to work with the physical forces which rule our planet. Baris’s AS workshop will focus on Dynamic Timing. Dynamics express the study of the causes of motion and changes in motion or the study of forces and why objects are in motion. The concept of force is used to describe an influence which causes a free body to accelerate or decelerate. The understanding of physical laws can help the mover to use forces acting on us to our advantage.

Baris studied social pedagogy, German, sports and special education for physically disabled children at the University of Cologne, Germany. Although always fascinated with movement, he did not start dancing until after finishing his degree. After completing his graduation thesis on Pina Bausch’s Dancetheater he was introduced to the Axis Syllabus, and immediately immersed himself in the study, and acquired a teacher’s certificate after 4 years. Baris has been teaching Axis Syllabus daily for dancers in Brussels and around Europe for 5 years and introduced the Axis Syllabus in İstanbul 2007. He is now based in Brussels and teaches regularly classes and workshops throughout Europe.

The courses are for dancers with experience that want to discover more in contemporary dance. The two days cost €46 and runs from 9.30 to 14.00 at Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen. Booking is essential.
