Our Choreography Project teaches you how to make dance from the basic choreographic principles. Of course, there is no formula for this. Each maker works his way through his project and develops a language of his own. But there are tools and principles to start with, playing, experimenting and creating. In this way, you obtain an insight into the creative processes and discover what appeals most to you.
The project consists of 3 modules, in which you can participate together or individually. Together they form a fascinating whole in which you can purify, try, experiment, compare and reflect.
If you register for the three modules, you receive a discount of 10% on the total price!
For (amateur) dancers, choreographers and makers who wish to take the next step in their own development from dancer to ‘maker’. You have dance experience and you have your own dancing baggage. You are very keen to make a dance, to realise your vision and to bring it to fruition.
All participants work from their own dance style. There is no focus on dance-technical aspects belonging to specific genres (movement material or dance phrases). The project does offer wide application possibilities across dance genres, such as dance dramaturgy, use of space, composition, etc.
The Choreography Project is a cooperation of Danspunt and WISPER. Georgina del Carmen Teunissen leads it from a dancing and theatrical point of view. Module 2 also contains input from very diverse artists from the (performing) arts.
Georgina del Carmen Teunissen (1980) started her training at Fontys Dansacademie and obtained her diploma at Hogeschool Antwerpen (dance department). She has danced in productions of, among others, Jan Fabre, Kendell Geers, Arne Sierens and Union suspecte. She worked with Haider Al Timimi on the performances ‘Ich bin wie du’ and ‘Bite the hand that feeds you’, and made her own first performance ‘Flor de Cana’ (2008) together with him. In 2016 she created ‘Anxcity: only vampires are afraid of the (spot)light’ for BRONKS. For KunstZ she made the performance ‘No man’s land’. Both performances started from the idea of giving visibility to the participating youngsters and their stories in the wider cultural field. Georgina is a staff member and teacher at Wisper.
