workshop between chaos and order with Simon Mayer and Hannah Shatki-Bühler 

In this workshop we bring opposites into relationship. Spontaneous forms of expression and movements dance with predetermined sequences such as choreographies, dance descriptions and rules of the game. In other words, together we will discover the connections between dance and play by exploring the tradition of dance games. This is intended to give dance back its playful nature. Through the interplay of chaos and order, control and trust, improvisation and choreography, we strengthen our resilience and find stability by letting go – an important resource in times of crisis.

On the occasion of the Volxfest project as part of the Capital of Culture Bad Ischl, Salzkammergut 2024, this workshop will also teach on the basis of archive sources from the archive of the Austrian Folk Song Society with descriptions of dances and dance games from the Konrad Mautner collection from Ausseerland, among others.
