A strong physical training will form the base for this workshop: The training challenges the participants physically and mentally and immediately deals with questions about physicality and its limits. Based on the common experience Florentina will give an introduction to her work and methodology.
The Austrian-Dutch Choreographer Florentina Holzinger impressed in recent years with her explosive and strong physical performances at SPRING Performing Arts Festival and other relevant European festivals and theatres. In her raw and theatrical performances, she likes to flirt with camp and kitsch. Meetings and occurrences in her private life play an important role in the creation of her performances. A 3 metre fall on stage, for instance, was the starting point for creating her ‘comeback’ performance Recovery in 2014. Via radical physicality she firmly criticizes western consumption society. Especially for SPRING Academy, Florentina designs a Masterclass from her unique language as a maker and dancer. Florentina says about this: “What it is about is this: the body in relation to its environment. That is the essence of my work.”
SPRING Academy invites (emerging) choreographers, dancers and physical performers.
