Summer 2018 offers a lot of opportunities to delve into Countertechnique in the USA. Make sure to join us at one of these exciting workshops!
Countertechnique Founder Anouk van Dijk will visit the United States again in 2018 to teach a US exclusive workshop at Gibney Dance in New York City (Aug 21-24). This is an unique opportunity in 2018 to work in the United States with the creator of Countertechnique, and Artistic Director of Australian contemporary dance company Chunky Move. The daily schedule will start with a Countertechnique class, followed by a Countertechnique Practical Tools session, and is concluded by a 2 hour workshop combining Repertoire from Common Ground - Anouk van Dijk's most recent work for Chunky Move - and the creation of new movement material.
After last year's success, Kira Blazek Ziaii and Joy Davis will return to the American Dance Festival's Six Week School from Jun 18 - Jul 20 to teach Countertechnique and a Countertechnique workshop Improvisation for Performance for six weeks.
Lillian Barbeito will feature at one of the other US' other major summer schools, teaching from Jul 23-28 at The School at Jacob's Pillow. As part her own company's popular three week BODYTRAFFIC Summer Program, she will also bring James Vu Anh Pham out from Australia to present a workshop in Los Angeles from Jul 2-11, consisting of Countertechnique classes and Repertoire by Anouk van Dijk for Chunky Move.
