Open Class with laborgras /Renate Graziadei

The Class will start with a warm up introducing concepts and aspects from several anatomically based movement systems which will prepare the body and mind to be receptive and prepared for moving in a highly physical way with an emphasis on detail without loosing once own individual expression. We will work on achieving an efficient body alignment as a base to move from. As the warm up gets more physical we begin to train various muscle groups, connections and actions working with gravity as our partner until we finally approach a choreographic material in which all the previous concepts can be applied.

Renate Graziadei was born in Austria and completed her dance training in Switzerland. She then moved to New York City where she studied, worked and lived for three years, dancing amongst others with the Nina Wiener Dance Company. After returning to Europe, she worked with Rui Horta at S.O.A.P Dance Theatre Frankfurt and later with the Hamburg-based dance group COAX. In autumn 1994, Renate Graziadei and Arthur Stäldi founded the laborgras collective. In addition to creating numerous original projects of their own, Renate and Arthur also contribute to the creation processes of other artists. Their longest and closest collaboration has been since 1999 with choreographer David Hernandez. Renate has worked with Sasha Waltz & Guests as assistant rehearsal director since 2004 and as a dancer since 2008. In 2016 she was a Guest at Susanne Linke Company in Trier for the Production – HOMMAGE A DORE HOYER.

In 2010 she was the critic’s choice for Dancer of the Year, awarded by ballet-tanz magazine and in March 2015, laborgras received the Kunstpreis Berlin art prize from the Akademie der Künste in the Performing Arts category. In September of the same year, Renate Graziadei was nominated for the DER FAUST German Theatre Prize for her dancing in the production Transition.
