Anna Katalin Nemeth has been dancing since her childhood: she is obsessed with the pure human body and its liberation through movement.
In the past years Anna has been developing a creative movement practice which she calls The Space In Between, investigating everything from the physical approach of dance and movement, combining contemporary dance techniques with elements of traditional and folk dance, to the philosophical approach of the understanding of human relations inspired by martial arts, meditation and trance states.
Yoga (Hatha/Vinyasa Flow)
The class is based on traditional Hatha Yoga, focusing on the conscious use of the breath and the holding of postures allowing the practitioner to settle body and mind. Using Vinyasa Flow style to practice maintaining this focus and calmness gained through the Hatha Yoga principles, in the physical challenge of continuous movement.
Contemporary Dance Basics
Anna will show some of the basic elements of contemporary dance before introducing her personal work. THE SPACE IN_BETWEEN_SOLO is a highly physical but playful contemporary dance class and research method which offers practical tools and approaches of opening oneself creative performing presence, and the way of sharing these between two or more individuals.
The focus of the class will be in the conscious understanding of spirals in the body and working with weight shifts (between balance and off balance), with the intention of gaining both confidence in dancing and a good understanding of movement efficiency.
Improvisation // Partnering // Contact
_THE SPACE IN BETWEEN_DUO is a contact improvisation, partnering and movement class where Anna Katalin Nemeth and Oli Pinchbeck draw on their respective backgrounds in dance and internal martial arts to present a joint workshop aimed at gaining awareness of the body and its motor skills, experiencing the stimuli of the surroundings, perceiving one’s own self and resonating with those around us.
The workshop includes a variety of activities focussing on the concepts of acceptance, resistance, change, giving, taking and letting go. Exploring a number of techniques, exercises and games, participants will work on inner and outer listening.
