Tartu seminars and workshops

Yesterday we had the chans to enjoy dance performances from both Denmark, Finland, Estonia and USA-Holland! During the NOBA Tartu meeting you will also have the opportunity to participate in seminars and workshops. Today’s program starts with a seminar held by Anne Ekenes. Anne Ekenes is the artistic leader of the dance company Panta Rei Danseteater in Norway. She will talk about the opportunities and risks that comes along when you are touring with performances for young audiences.

In the afternoon we will have a workshop with Joan van der Mast (NL), on the theme “Boosting your Creative Soul”. Joan van der Mast is choreographer, contemporary dance teacher, certified Laban Movement Analyst and an internationally respected specialist & lecturer in didactics and methodology in Contemporary and Modern Dance.

To finish of this day, we will enjoy Erik Kaiel`s workshop “Orbiting the body“.
Erik Kaiel is a lebanese-american choreographer, now based in the Netherlands. His choreography has won numerous prizes, and over the last decade, he and his dancers have taught, performed, and created work throughout the world.
In this workshop we will explore physical communication as a springboard for further ideas and the emphasis will be on open-ended exercises. Elements of contact improvisation will mix with the rudimentary dance scores, building a base for further exploration and discovery.
