The Poetics of Variety – Hunting for Beauty – Vera Rosner

Bring your fleshy body and your desire ridden dreams! Through improvisational scores we’ll look at how to be at ease with differences. From her own experience, Vera examines what we can do to overcome physical boundaries together. What are the challenges and unique opportunities in our group? How do we deal with technical aids such as crutches, wheelchairs, skateboards and scooters? How do we use difference to create a unique performance? At the end we’ll have a sharing of our work – a SHOW-OFF! The workshop is open to movers of all abilities and all ages!

Vera Rosner (AT) is DanceAbility trainer, performer and choreographer. She has performed for Danse Brute, Dorish Uhlich, Jérôme Bel and is the founder of the Austrian DanceAbilty Movement.
