The classes integrate elements from a variety of different, but complimentary movement techniques/methods. Elements from floorwork and gymnastics are used in the class to awaken the use of body weight, momentum, strength and stamina. Other components influenced by gaga, martial arts and hiphop focus more on imagebased movement qualities, sharpness, efficiency, precision and on body awareness. The last element involves isolation exercises – alone and with a partner. The classes include coordination games that challenge the body and mind; Guided improvisations, that aim at opening channels to experience physical engagement through senses and states of mind; and vice versa. Every class ends by learning a movement phrase that incorporates all the elements that have been worked on; accompanied by some nice music, placing emphasis on the importance of playfulness and joy of performing in our daily training for individual creativity.

The Village – A creation research /Bad Lemons Project invites dancers and actors to apply for a Research Project with Zoe Gyssler as a part of the OASIS project. Based on Zoe‘s ongoing research „The Villager“, that explores character-based body languages to achieve a storytelling body, she is doing her next research step towards her creation “The Village”. Zoe invites 2 mature dancers/movers, who have an affinity for theatre, or actors, that are interested in expressing through physicality. “The Village” is a multidisciplinary project, that tells a non-linear story of a village and its inhabitants, who seem to only exist as ghosts in the memory of the spectator. A work about small group structures and its dynamics and how the complexity of human relationships is covered by the veil of transgenerational trauma.
