The Flying Score – Workshop by Scott Wells
Workshop in Contact Improvisation, flight patterns and fluid acrobatics
May 24-26, 2019 – Tanzfabrik Berlin
With: Scott Wells, San Francisco
Artistic Director of Scott Wells & Dancers – contemporary dance ensemble, renown for their high-flying, gravity-defying dance..
WORKSHOP – The Flying Score:
(…) «Some of the techniques that will be tought are: ‘flying patterns’ (lifts, how to spring, how to jump, how to fly), ‘fluid acrobatics’ (actobatics in movement), ‘pure contact’ (contact improvisation basics).
(…) We will practice flying, catching, landing, fluid acrobatics and deft maneuvers. We will practice integrating the flying and acrobatics into the contact flow. That is: aerial interactions that increase the contact. We will take the aerial work into improvisation»
BIO Scott Wells:
«Scott Wells & Dancers is celebrating 25 years of making dances in San Francisco. Wells has created works for skateboarders, for boxers and choreographed West Side Story for Sonoma State University.
In 2010 and 2005 Scott received the Izzie (San Francisco’s most prestigious dance award) for Outstanding Choreography and was selected by Dance Magazine as “one of the 25 To Watch”.
Wells has been practicing Alexander Technique for twentyfive years and BMC for fifteen. Scott’s style is athletic and emphasizes freedom of movement, flying, fluid acrobatics, safety, precision, pleasure and technique.
What students often like best in Scott’s classes is the variance between meditative, playful, and very physical dancing. And students appreciate how the scary or advanced moves are safe, relaxed and made possible.»
«Sproing! Once you adjust to the notion that very fit people are supposed to be bouncing off walls and flying in your face, you can relax and let them (Wells and dancers) do their thing, which is an electrifying style of contact improvisation»
- SF Weekly
«Wells has become over the last fifteen years the Paul Taylor of Contact Improv — that is, the first to make dances in this idiom that are deeply musical, somehow «normal,» imaginative, witty, often hilarious, sometimes fierce.”
- Paul Parrish, Danceviewtimes
«Come for the Thrills, Stay for the Artistry.»
- Allan Ulrich, Voice of Dance
