 „How can we challenge the established expectations and performance formats within art to create work that goes beyond consumption and forces the spectator to take action as part of the development of the performance?“

Workshops

Tools to find sense and dramaturgy inside of improvisations, as well as tools to find freedom to improvise inside of fixed structures and choreographies

Be it dance, theatre, circus or other forms of performance and expression, improvisation is a great tool to find and discover new material. Improvisation can offer a lot more than being a tool to find material though.
With this work, the focus is to create a performer that is ‘present’ and ‘awake’, making his decisions in the moment; no matter if they are already written or not. To be alive on stage, we can not know what move will happen next. We must be in the ‘now’ to be with the audience.

“Keeping the balance in a handstand is the art of falling in all directions at the same time”

When we move through space we constantly fall in and out of balance. This workshop will explore handstands not only as a static balance but as a suspension on our hands we can fall into and out of.

About me

Jakob Lohmann is an artist from Germany, born in 1995. He discovered circus during his high school time where he joined the local youth circus. Finishing high school he continued to pursue his circus activities professionally at Codarts Circus Arts in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. During the 4 year degree he created various performances and started to find and develop his own artistic vision and style as performer.

Using floor acrobatics and balances as his main tools, his work thematises the actor/spectator relationship within the performative space.

In 2019 he joined the Anfibia Project, an interdisciplinary performers training project in Bologna, Italy which finished in October 2020.
 
Recently his performance Being Audience|Being performer received a nomination for the Stockholm Fringe Award in the category ‚Spoken Word and Theatre‘
 
Jakob Lohmann is recognised member of the International Dance Council CID. CID is official partner of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
