i am a loser, and you, you're a loser too. then along comes this day. it makes you invincible. but you're still a loser. the only thing left to do is to make your way to corsica to participate in a workshop with first-rate-loser johannes wieland. be prepared for physical and mental exhaustion, being turned inside out and upside down with improvisation, movement and text.

the class starts with mobilizing and stretching exercises and builds gradually up to floor work leading to very physical and dynamic phrases. we will deal with ways we can organize our body so we can be more efficient, faster and smoother in moving into and out of the floor. we will use the gravity and the floor as dance partners that can support us and allow us to both bring our body out of balance and propel us to high jumps. In the class the participants are encouraged to take risks and explore their physicality, and by using their strengths to challenge their weak points.

HOW TO APPLY please send your cv to:

as we would like to concentrate on each participant individually, we are keeping the group small. there will be maximum 16 participants.

we will contact you as soon as possible!
