We get to know basic movements and principles of Capoeira. We will also learn to sing 2-3 simple capoeira songs. Playful and creative, we will experiment with this type of movement. The combative and playful energy of capoeira will be incorporated into our dance of contact improvisation.

 

Muriel Jeanne Mollet (CH)

is teacher at the Höheren Fachschule for contemporary and urban performing arts Zürich. She is working as a free lanced dance teacher, performer, instructor of Kampfesspiele® and water therapist. After her graduation as a pedagogue for dance & gymnastic (SBTG-Diplom 1989) she studied „Elementarer Tanz“ at the University of Sports Köln. She continued studying different dance- and improvisation techniques and martial arts (Capoeira, Shinson Hapkido and Escrima). She was founder and director of SURIEL dance theater (1993-97). For a long time she was a member of the research-, improvisation- & performance-group „x-group“. Performances with the Capoeira Show group and dancing in different dance productions guided her as a dancer through Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Brasil. Since 2000 she is teaching Contactimprovisation for different groups (dance-companies, disabled & normal people, +60, kids & teens,..). She will transfer her passion for Contactimprovisation in her teaching.
Joyful dancing, games, experimenting with movement and physical forces, discovering the extremes and limits, rhythm, music and flow are the most important in her teaching and dancing. There is a balance between technique, improvisation tasks and sensitive perceptual and awareness exercises.
