As part of the Dance Congress 2019 – A Long Lasting Affair, which will take place from June 5–10 2019 in HELLERAU, several workshops are offered to the local dance scene. On May 4th and 5th the dancer and choreographer Sigal Zouk invites professional dancers local to Dresden to explore their sensual body and to guide it into a presence that has the potential to overcome any situation. Together they will investigate the bodily state that comes before dancing.
Sigal Zouk works as a dancer and artistic advisor with artists such as Sasha Waltz, Meg Stuart, Batsheva Ensemble, Laurent Chétouane, Boris Charmatz, Jared Gradinger, Angela Schubot and many more. She teaches at Tanzfabrik Berlin, HZT, and Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln among others.
„At first we practice something like what comes before it becomes dance. The becoming of dance. Being in the body. In space. In time. Being looked at, being recognized, and recognizing the situation as it is. And let it grow from there, finding the logic of the moment. Then it is dance.” Sigal Zouk
