Workshow series, vol. 18
Delving into the Erotics of Dance
s/with Matthew Rogers & Chris Leuenberger
Desire & Discipline; a study of Erotics of Dance is a dance performance 
made by Matthew Rogers (SK/USA) and Chris Leuenberger (CH) that focuses on the wild,
ironic, vulnerable, aesthetic, dark nature of male eroticism. Using themselves/each other 
as the subject and object of desire, they playfully build upon the freedom gay men 
have to create new models of relating and bonding as humans. The dancers have created 
a fantasy world embodying historical dance forms intertwining with personal pursuits of labor 
and intimacy. In Desire & Discipline, Matthew and Chris use homo-erotics as a metaphor 
for self love, connection and sexual autonomy.

In the workshop we share tools and strategies for generating dance forms from an experience of pleasure and vitality. We follow our curiosity and explore what engages our desire to move. We use touch and create sound together. We exercise full body pleasure while dancing. In group, duet and solo form, we uncover qualities of movement that support the visibility and power of our own erotic nature. With some reflection you may redefine your understanding of erotics in dance.

Na tomto workshope sa delíme o stratégie a nástroje pre generovanie tanečných foriem, vychádzajúcich zo skúsenosti prežívania pôžitku a vitality. Nasledujeme vlastnú zvedavosť a skúmame, čo spúšťa našu túžbu hýbať sa. Používame dotyk a spoločne vytvárame zvuk. Zameriavame sa na celotelový pôžitok v priebehu tancovania. V skupine, v duetoch a sólovej forme odkrývame kvality pohybu, ktoré podporujú viditeľnosť a silu našej erotickej prirodzenosti. Na základe reflexie je možné si predefinovať svoje chápanie erotiky v tanci.
