WORKSHOPS

Ballet National de Marseille & ICK Amsterdam
09 – 15 February 2019

During their week-long creative residency, Ballet National de Marseille and ICK Amsterdam will present a packed programme including two productions Apparition /Disparition, workshops, an introduction and a platform discussion with Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten.

DOUBLE SKIN / DOUBLE MIND (DS/DM)

is a dance method developed by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten to discover the sensitivity of the body through four basic principles: Breathing, Jumping, Expanding and Reducing. This awareness of the possibilities that the body can generate is necessary when creating new choreographic material. Because of this, the DS/DM method is the basis of every individual performance by Greco and Scholten. The DS/DM method is offered as a masterclass, a training or a workshop to both amateurs and professionals. Experiencing the DS/DM method can lead to a new physical and mental awareness in which intention and form coincide. DS/DM also provides insight into the artistic work of the two choreographers.
