> M I N D TH E  RAGE

mind the rage – a performative tour about RAGE by go plastic

rage, the – noun, feminine
violent, unrestrained outburst of emotion caused by anger or the like, showing itself in countenance, word and deed

Based on their comprehensive, thematic research, the collective sets an artistic framework, which is filled with biographical anecdotes, associative approaches and personal reflections.
Tipping points, loops, outlets, expectations, transformation and a constant search – for translations into material, into systems, into strategies – characterize go plastic’s artistic treatment of this complex and present theme. Interior spaces are illuminated, evidence gets collected, and the many spectra of this condition are differentiated.

The go plastic company undertakes the attempt to identify the positive power of rage and to translate it into usability and to provide the space for different approaches. With ANGER experts from different areas of life and work, questions were discussed, voices heard, experiments started, perspectives opened up and new levels developed.
From the outside to the inside, between negative portrayal and positive selling, between being carried away and painful self-awareness, between overflowing energy and unrestrained silence; go plastic invites discussion and participation and embarks with the audience on a round trip through the realms of anger.

Impulse at go plastic STUDIO LAB:
»PLAY Experimental«
Tuesday, October 12 from 12 a.m. – 2 p.m.

In the workshop »PLAY Experimental« the dancers are encouraged to creatively use new and own movement patterns by playing with musical structures, groove and improvisation. Initially, small dynamic routines are developed, inspired by the styles of House, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Floorwork. These will be modified in the course of the workshop through inputs and aleatorics, so that playing with habits may become a challenge. Finally, to focus on the genre “Experimental”, the examination of musicality and individual tasks will be an essential conclusion of the workshop.

Alex Effuse

Alexandra Filippidou is a movement artist, dance teacher and performer from Greece. Her dance is influenced by ballet, jazz, Latin American dances and various couple dances. For many years she trained various street dance styles, with popping as her primary focus and influence. For the last four years she has been active in the street dance scene, winning and judging various competitions. She taught all over Europe, sharing her philosophy in life and dance through the style Waving. She danced at the cultural center “Stravos Niarchos” in Athens, at Tanzhaus NRW and worked with Canadian producer Jeremy Shaw on his project “Phase Shifting Index”. Her most recent work was at Fonty’s University of the Arts in Tilburg, Holland, where she also taught Waving.

Impulse at go plastic STUDIO LAB:
»Waving«
Saturday, October 15 from 1 – 3:30 p.m.

This workshop will focus on exploring, playing and creating concepts in the style of waving. We will work in depth with the floor and learn how simple methods and the use of simple tools can unleash creativity. We will transform our practice into a playground and create movement on the floor with ease while working with our natural abilities. Waving will be our medium to discover new possibilities through guided exercises.

Cindy Hammer

Impulse at go plastic STUDIO LAB:
»Compagnie Training go plastic«
Tuesday, October 11
Thursday, October 13
Friday, October 14
each from 10 – 11:30 a.m.

Cindy Hammer‘s training consists of three parts: a full-body, intensive warm up, another part in which improvisation and movement concepts are worked on and finally the learning of a choreographic sequence. The offer is aimed at professional and advanced dancers.

Kat Válastur 

Kat Válastur (born in Athens, Greece ) is a Berlin based choreographer and performer. Her choreographic works are defined by the creation of transformative experiences on stage. In her work the bodies are manifesting the ways that power structures are experienced and are embodied. Through the use of the mythical as a tool, she creates a condition that is charged with historical, fictional, social and personal experiences.

Impulse at go plastic STUDIO LAB:
Wednesday, October 12 from 12 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“In the three hours that we are going to spend together we are going to taste different ways in bringing  the focus into an experience of a collective work. How can we dance together and constitute an assemblage of different bodies with the desire to work together? How we negotiate and make decisions together while we dance in a condition where we all lead and we all follow? How can we awaken and activate such a non hierarchical awareness in a group work?”

Louise Knofe 

After her studies at the Palucca University of Dance Dresden Luise Knofe started as a freelance professional dancer and teacher. She further specialized in Urban Dance & Experimental Styles in the “1 year international education program” at HipDrop in Malmö/Sweden and lived and trained in Los Angeles to start her career in the entertainment industry.
