In this three-day creative workshop Anouk van Dijk will share how Countertechnique tools can be implemented in the creative process, and how this has informed her choreographic oeuvre. Each day we will depart from working methods used for a specific work. On Day 1 we will work with the implications of a confined space (An Act of Now, 2012), on Day 2 with natural and constructed materials (Traces, 2019), and on Day 3 with uneven terrain and unpredictable natural elements (Depth of Field, 2015). Participants are invited to explore working on different sites that can be found in and around the house, and the workshop includes on- and offline work assignments. Although a short improvisation warm-up is provided, participants are encouraged to be warmed up before we start. All creative minds are invited!
