The three-week Berlin immersion is an experience created to challenge and transform students by offering them exposure to some of the most widely known artists in the world. The generosity of these artists offers a wide range of experiences, methods, experimental performance and methods of engaging across the waters.
The first week starts with a 2-hour ballet class (focusing on alignment, strength, balance, and coordination) while the afternoon is spent with one of the artists based on multilayered workshops from top choreographers/artists focusing on repertory, choreographic charge, and performance art-making/doing. The second week is a collaboration where those attending our immersive program will join some of the workshops hosted by the b12 festival. The third and final week brings us back together to continue working deeply with the Tisch Summer in Berlin Faculty.
The course is open to those with an intermediate to strong contemporary/improvisational background, a strong work ethic, responsibility to the collaborative process, and the ability to embody this physically demanding period of work. This is recommended for an art-maker/movement practitioner looking to deepen themselves through a multitude of foreign lenses.
