MOVIMENTOS IM TANZ ERLEBEN (Experience Movimentos through dance)
Workshop with Mathias Brühlmann

23 and 30 April, 7, 14 and 21 May, 16:00 - 19:00h in the FreiRaum

Experience Movimentos through dance is staged on all weekends during the festival. Every Sunday, Mathias Brühlmann, ballet master of the Hanover State Opera, offers workshop participants his popular mix of dance theory and personal dance work.

After dance styles presented by the international ensembles performing in the KraftWerk are introduced and explained, students begin developing and rehearsing short choreographies.

Born in Zurich, Mathias Brühlmann completed his dance training in his hometown and at the State Ballet School in Berlin. He then danced with the Nederlands Dans Theater II, at the Berlin Staatsoper Unter den Linden, the Essen Aalto-ballet-theater and at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dusseldorf. Since 2006/07 he has worked at the Hanover State Opera where he mainly serves as a ballet master and leads the "Late Movers" – a group he launched offering gymnastics, dance and music for the young at heart who want to enjoy movement and remain active.

The workshop is open to all interested parties age 55 and up.
