In the cycles we dedicate our research to predetermined topics in order to concretize the work and give the group a common denominator. In addition, the cycles aim to promote sustainability of workshops and give the opportunity to further develop and practice ideas that have been sown in such.
Each cycle is introduced by a workshop week, followed by a research period (between 3 - 6 weeks) and concludes in a showing:
Guest artists are invited to present new research methods and tools in a workshop. The subject areas include different circus and dance disciplines in which movement research is possible: contemporary dance and improvisation methods, acrobatics, partnering, partner acrobatics, aerial acrobatics, trampoline, clowning, theater methods, composition, feedback methods and much more.
After the workshop phase, the methods taught are examined in depth, further developed and trained as a group over several weeks in the laboratory. The common framework/focus exists for the concretization of the work, within which one should be able to move freely as an individual.
In the concluding showing, the researched methods and processes will be presented to the public in a format chosen by the participants (performance, installation, lecture, film, etc.) at the MARK Salzburg.
