Creation Program '23

Jul 9, 2023 – Jul 16, 2023


One-week workshop concentrating on the creative process, diving into pushing the boundaries of fusing classical ballet and contemporary dance. A new creation will emerge, serving as a path for dancers to discover their capabilities, focusing on rhythm, partnering, and group work. An opportunity to be part of a new creation with Juliano Nunes culminating in an informal presentation on Orsolina28's Open Air Stage at the end of the workshop.


Led by FLOCK dancer/choreographer duo Alice Klock and Florian Lochner, these workshops will focus on trust, communication, and the possibilities unlocked through equal partnership. FLOCK uses their unique approach to non-binary partnering to guide each dancer into new ways of understanding contact and their own physicality within the context of connection. With FLOCK each participating artist is not asked to fit into a mold, but rather to fully express and explore their personal artistry and craft.
