In this workshop we explore the field of tension of urban dance in the context of contemporary choreography. In the warm-up we will tune into music, body and space with guided improvisation tasks. Afterwards we dedicate ourselves to different urban basic techniques and movement concepts, which we analyze extensively in order to find our own style in it. Based on the piece development of deciphered we will then bring the movement material into different relations to each other: How does our movement material change when we dance in a typical question-answer circle? Or when we dance against one another? And what if we don't dance one after the other, but share the space and coexist there?
