OCTOBER 1, 2023
11AM–1PM AND 2PM–4PM
The choreography of Frühling Sommer Herbst Winter (Spring Summer Autumn Winter), also known as “Nelken Line” consists of four simple and impressive movements. Each movement represents one of the four seasons and is originally danced in Pina Bausch's piece Nelken to Louis Armstrong's West End Blues. In 2017, the Pina Bausch Foundation created the Nelken Line Project, and since then thousands of people have danced the short choreography.
In the workshop, choreographer and performer Fiona Edwards and dancer and dance educator Alessandra Lola Agostini lead the sequence of movements. The workshop begins with warm-up exercises and an introduction to dance work with different body parts. Afterwards, the leaders show the four movements from Frühling Sommer Herbst Winter (Spring Summer Autumn Winter). These will be practiced together and finally danced in a walk through the MINSK.
No previous experience necessary. Parts of the workshop will take place outside, please bring comfortable and warm clothes.
