Kira will be giving a five day workshop exploring entries and exits into dynamic inversions. This is not a class on how to stand on your hands for eternity but how to incorporate upside-down perspectives in your dancing with ease and momentum.
Kira is a performer/teacher/improvisor/choreographer from Berlin/Vienna who is now based in San Francisco. Kira studied at the Conservatory of Vienna, at tanzpool and received a scholarship from the Austrian Ministry for Culture to independently work with master teacher Frey Faust who developed the theroy, analysis and method called the Axis Syllabus. In the realm of improvisation she has had the luck to study with and be inspired by visionary women such as Sara Mann, Meg Stuart and Nita Little. Since 2004 she gets invited to teach technique and contact improvisation internationally at festivals, schools and universities such as ODC & CounterPULSE San Francisco, SEAD-salzburg, Orff-institute, HJS-Amsterdam, Buehnenwerkstatt Graz or Schwelle7 Berlin and was co-organizing & teaching the international annual Nomadic College for 7 years. January 2010 she became resident faculty & affiliated artist at KUNST-STOFF arts, a new space for the performing arts in San Francisco.
