Happy Autumn, Dance Fans!

I hope this finds You fabulous! The above notes were from a workshop i gave earlier this month to design students at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. I shared one of the wonderful tuning scores by the brilliant Lisa Nelson and asked one of the students to make a note of the tasks we were working with. Being a fine arts & design academy, it came out much nicer than i’m used to – i enjoy the mix of calligraphy and post-modern dance (and the Dutch spelling of “pause/pauze”).

This is what i’ll be up to this month and the next:

November 3 & 4: Teaching two workshops, The Choreography of a Play Party, and the much-needed Discipline, at STRETCH Festival Berlin.

Then running over to Tanzfabrik Berlin to perform with Ingo Reulecke and Kai Evans at Common Ground, Sunday November 4 at 6pm.

Starting November 5, and running through December 19, i’ll be facilitating a Performance Project on Desire – Intimacy in Process and Performance – at Tanzfabrik Berlin. The project is fully booked, but please come to see the final showing on December 19 at 9pm in Uferstudio 3. You can also still join the open class, Pleasure – a contemporary technique class – which will be happening before the performance project every Monday and Wednesday evening at 6:15pm, also November 5 through December 19.

From November 10 to 15, i will be rehearsing my new piece The Universe Project in the frame of a creative residency at Tanzzentrale Nürnberg. There will be a public showing at Tanzzentrale the evening of November 15, and a public conversation about the role of desire in choreography between Nuremberg-based choreographer Barbara Bess and myself at Tafelhalle Nürnberg on November 13.

And finally, on Friday November 23 & Saturday November 24, i will be presenting my one-on-one performance Sexual Fortune Telling at the marvelous PornyDays Festival in Zurich, between 6 and 10pm both days.

Hope to see You there!

Sending lots of love,
David B.
