Choreographic Workshop with Mark Tompkins
Academia de Artes do Estoril
24 - 28 July

Mark Tompkins is back in town as the invited teacher of the upcoming Choreographic Workshop.
During five days, participants will be invited to get deeper into Tompkins’ universe and develop practice improvisation through the techniques of real-time composition.
Tompkins will be joined by Nuno Rebelo, Portuguese composer, experimental guitarist and regular collaborator in the improvisation shows of renowned dancers such as Boris Chamartz, Mark Tompkins, Mathilde Monnier and Vera Mantero, among many others.

Schedule: 10.00 – 17.00
Price: €100
Registration until July 17 through our form
To: University students and professionals with training and experience in performing arts.

Activities will be carried out in two parts:

LAB I – Serious Fun
The practice of improvisation is not so much about passing from one state to another – passive/active, moving/witnessing, center/support, inside/outside – but the integration of these roles into a simultaneous and continuous flux of sensations, perception, and states.
The exploration touch / to be touched, is a simple yet complex study of curiosity, and witnessing through touch. Active and passive roles, defined in the beginning, progressively blend and mix, creating play. Acknowledging change through play is one of the most exciting elements of improvisation, as well as realizing witnessing as an active state. Even in moments of extreme physicality or immobility you are acting and witnessing. Moving becomes a fascinating, confusing, and thrilling experience.

LAB II – Audible Movement, Visible Sound
The practice of Real time composition is fundamentally the same for dancers and musicians. The major differences lie in the use of the body – the instrument – and in the motivation to act. For a dancer, the body is the instrument and the primary motivation is to create movement, in other words, to be seen. For a musician, the body in its relationship to an object is the instrument and the primary motivation is to create sound, in other words, to be heard. Mark Tompkins and  Nuno Rebelo investigate the similarities and differences between their respective points of view, emphasizing and playing with the zones of crossover and contamination.

Bio

Mark Tompkins is an American dancer, choreographer, singer, and teacher. Founded the I.D.A. Company in 1983. His unique way of fabricating unidentified performance objects, that mix dance, music, voice, and text, has become his signature, reinforced by his collaboration with the scenographer and costumier Jean-Louis Badet since 1988. Renowned for his teaching, his passion for Real time composition led him to work with many internationally renowned improvisers. In 2008, he receives the SACD Choreography prize for all his work. He works with Portuguese choreographer Mariana Tengner Barros and collaborates since 2016 with choreographer Meg Stuart on the project ONE SHOT dialogues on real time composition, including workshops and improvised performances.

Nuno Rebelo, self-taught musician, has been developing a wide activity as a composer of music for ballet, theater and cinema, having collaborated with Vera Mantero, Mark Tompkins, Constanza Brncic, Paulo Ribeiro, João Fiadeiro, Aldara Bizarro, Cosmin Manolescu, Philippe Genty, José Wallenstein, António Feio, José Nascimento, Edgar Pêra, among others.
As an experimental guitarist he has played in several countries with top musicians of improvised music. Between 2013 and 2015 he taught contemporary improvisation at Taller de Musics – Escola Superior d’Estudis Musicals, in Barcelona. In improvisation shows with dance, he has performed with dancers such as Steve Paxton, Lisa Nelson, Vera Mantero, Mark Tompkins, Julyen Hamilton, David Zambrano, Frans Poelstra, Mathilde Monnier, Boris Charmatz, Constanza Brncic, Malpelo, etc.
