Individual Training Practice Development / Anna Till / WiSe 18/19
The goal of this practice based class is to define every students training needs and establish an individual training routine. Students are guided and accompanied by Anna Till to support reflection on questions like: What defines a training practice? What is my own practice? What is my training history? How can I structure a training routine that serves my needs and prepares myself for rehearsal work and performing.
Students regularly will exchange their explorations amongst each other within a shared training. A workbook is required to keep track of each individual training schedule and as matter of assessment.

Modul 11 Kolloquium / Eva-Maria Hoerster & Anna Till / WiSe 18/19
In this colloquium 5th semester BA students meet to review and discuss work that happens and happened in the frame of their module 11 – own project work. During a two days meeting at Gutshof Sauen students will have the opportunity to revisit their individual and collaborative projects, to identify (recurring) themes, interests and traces and to look at their practice in relation to another artist’s work. The seminar will allow students to reflect on their work through peer exchange, discussion and writing.

Set Re-Set / Anna Till / SoSe 19
Who owns a movement? How to pass dance on to others? How to notate a dance? How to remember movements and redo them over and over again?
This movement based seminar deals with setting movement – in opposition to instant composition, improvisation on stage, score based dancing or performing a movement quality.
We will work on different principles to create a set movement-phrase, e.g. to improvise with a camera and relearn certain movements, to walk blindfolded, take in the surrounding with all your senses, translate the experience into movement, set the essence of your moving translation into a phrase, to flip through a series of images, set a dance phrase in the order of the images, and much more. The set material will be used to elaborate the doing and performing of it, exhausting the set form to explore the transformation which might occur and use this for the further choreographing.
What if the phrase is performed in a very different moving quality? What if it’s done backwards or on a different level (e.g. lying on the floor)? What if you pass it on to somebody else and melt it with another one`s set material?
Eventually every participant will own a set dance phrase, which will be performed in different variations: as a solo, in a group, as a canon etc. We will use the possibility of Studio 14 (> “Raumlabor”) to stage the movement material in a Black Box and a White Cube, adding lights and sounds as we wish.

The Mind is a Muscle.* Künstlerische Strategien in Tanz und Performance / Sandra Umathum & Anna Till / im Rahmen von PAF Campus
Dieses PAF Campus Seminar bietet eine Einführung in die heterogenen künstlerischen Strategien der freien Tanz- und Performanceszene Berlins. Mittels Videomaterial und Praxisübungen nähern wir uns unterschiedlichen Vorstellungen von Tanz und Performance und lernen Formen der Stückentwicklung kennen. Wir blicken zurück auf die 1960er Jahre, auf das Werk von Yvonne Rainer. Mit ihrer Kampfansage gegen Glamour und Virtuosität entmystifizierte sie den Tanz und wies ihm als Kunstform eine neue Rolle innerhalb von Minimal Art, Fluxus und Konzeptkunst zu. Rainers Performance sowie ihre Maxime „The Mind is a Muscle“ gelten als bedeutende Zäsur im Tanz und als Grundstein des sogenannten postmodern dance. Wir untersuchen, inwiefern sich zeitgenössische Methoden des Choreografierens, Komponierens oder Wiederaufführens auf diesen Paradigmawechsel beziehen (oder nicht).

time/ing / Anna Till / WiSe 2020
This seminar is a shared research about TIME from various perspectives – in connection to movement and performance, and as well in relation to other disciplines, such as cultural science or sociology.
Main questions will be: How do we perceive time? What is the time/ing of a movement, a dance, a choreography? Which different experiences do we have with time within our daily life? What is your personal relation to time while dancing and improvising? How and why do we measure time? How does a different timing change a choreography? How is time connected to socio-economic aspects? How does the awareness of time/ing structure a group choreography?
Starting with various (group) exercises, experiments and try outs, we will later meet 2 guests to share our thoughts about time on a theoretical level and get input from the perspective of cultural science and sociology. Eventually we will focus on your own artistic projects to observe the role of time/ing within.
