Event på Facebook

Workshop with HELENE at Oslo Oriental Dance Festival 2022
In this unique class we will explore how to dance to live music, focusing on the tabla solo and the magic of the taqsim.
How can you anticipate what’s coming next in a a tabla solo, and what do you do if you don’t know what to do??
What movements are compatible with the sound of the nay and the oud, and why do certain performances speak to you and just fit the music perfectly?
We will dive into the different layers in a tabla solo, different taqsims and how you to dance to them.
When this class is over you will leave with a set of tools that will be helpful both in improvisation and in making your own choreography.
Note – this is not a dance technique class. We will work within the frames of each dancers existing vocabulary.
The Al-Saadi brothers are accompanying Helene for this workshop and you can look forward to the opportunity to practise to acoustic tabla, ney and oud.
