Presentation of participating artists/researchers

Elise Mae Nuding (SE/UK) is an artist and researcher in dance and choreography with a background in cultural heritage studies and archaeology. Her artistic practice lies at the intersection of choreography, somatic practice, (contact) improvisation, and writing. Her teaching experience includes extensive teaching in higher education and a range of other settings, such as professional training for dancers and community contexts. She is currently a lecturer in dance at the University of Gothenburg.

In Elise’s class, we will explore material compositions (of the body, the collective body, and its surroundings) through various improvisational structures and touch, both on our own and in contact with others.

Katarina Eriksson has worked with improvisation and experimental dance since 1989, often in interdisciplinary contexts. She teaches Contact and dance improvisation internationally and is a regular partner with Moving Ground, San Fransisco and Spinn Dance Company, Gothenburg. After many years in the USA, she has recently moved back to Sweden and is currently working with her own performance project Pause Piece/Växprocesser and with Big Wind’s adaptation of The Tempest for and with young people with special needs. Katarina’s leadership style supports collaboration, diversity of expression and “beginner’s mind”. Her main guides in art-making are vulnerability, musicality and deep play.

In Katarina’s class, we investigate the creative potential of one of nature’s (and the dancing body’s) most common forms: the spiral. We begin with playful solo explorations and perceptive duo exercises, then meander on to ensemble improvisations, inspired by the surrounding landscape, and the dynamic patterns of nature.

Anna E Weiser is a transdisciplinary composer – sound choreographer, voice artist, writer, Somatic Movement Educator/BMC®, with an artistic master’s degree in Music from the Royal College of Music. She works sense-based, explores timbre and listening – sense of sound – in a wider perspective; materially, spatially, in landscape, in relation to sensibility and perception. She is currently working with her own project about voice improvisations by watercourses, and runs Vibrationsverket – Room for movement on Gotland together with Wolfgang Weiser.

In Anna’s class, we will explore materiality, resonance and spatiality through improvisation, movement and elements of craft/visual art.  We will work with distinguishing textures and timbres, on hearing and noticing difference, with and without material and objects that can sound. The work is influenced by Body-Mind Centering®.

Wolfgang Weiser, Sweden, is a senior AT teacher and balance artist. He is performing, giving workshops as well as educating AT- teachers. Currently he is a PhD student in the research school SMOVE (sustainable movement education) at Gothenburg University as well as running Vibrationsverket – Room for movement on the Island of Gotland together with Anna E Weiser.

In Wolfgang’s class, we examine the act of balance. It incorporates the principles of the Alexander Technique into simple movement explorations to engage and re-organize the relationship with our surroundings.


Warm welcome!
