„When I came in touch with CI end of the 80ies, it was like a „Magnesium-Experience“ that was changing my life radically. From the work as a social worker I entered into the field of CI and Improvisation that allowed me to travel all over Europe and the Americas. In my teaching I try to offer a playful pathway to access this incredible dance form, create curiousity to research for it’s base principles and techniques and find freedom, lightness and playfulness in the improvisation with others.“

Among others, he was dancing in „DANCE BUTTER TOKYO“ with Anzu Furukawa and in „ALTERNATING CURRENTS“, a group of Contact-Performern from USA and Europa.
"After more than 30 years of experience in CI I am fascinated how we can stil find new aspects inside this dance from. I love to research, to work in unconventional ways, to look at old facts with a new view, give new evaluation to it and share this with others". „

Underscore Tages - Jam 25.9. 2016
Ines Heckmann/Philipp Kiefer

Der Underscore nach Nancy Stark Smith beschreibt Phasen und Phänomene, die besonders im Tanz der contact improvisation auftreten. Diese bewegliche Struktur erleichtert dem Tanzenden, sich im scheinbar ungeordneten Geschehen einer Jam zu orientieren: wärme ich mich gerade solistisch auf?
