Workshop | Agenda

Since 2012, artistic director Sita Ostheimer is guiding and sharing her philsophy in masterclasses and workshops for the international contemporary dance scene.

Today, as well her company members offer to share her new perspectives, artistic development and critical reflections on one moving self.

By inviting different movers into our univers, we aim to inspire and support students from profession-oriented bachelor programmes, postgraduate contemporary dance companies as well as through professional training cycles.Within a strong insight to improvisation, company repertoire and research, we offer the opportunity to learn, feel and understand how we awaken an unheard powerful inner voice, from where movement arises naturally, furthermore understand where technique and skill connects to this very starting point of humanness.

Bad Lemons Project invites dancers to apply for a Research Project with Sita
Ostheimer as part of the OASIS project. Working with 5 artists, Sita invites you to
support and give time for her further investigation of the translation and
transformation of the essence of her work through a camera lense.
In this three days research lab, Sita will give you an insight of her physicality and
philosophy of the moving and present body, creating material for you, which she
then brings in front of the camera lense. This research lab is for professional dancers only, selected by Bad Lemons together with Sita Ostheimer.

Preferably participants of the workshop mentioned above.

The sharing of the lab's work will be in the form of the film publication on social media.

A love story between Night and Chaos

The dimension of beauty is closely tied to silence

INFO FOR REGISTRATION under this email address:

Each day the dancers will be guided through an improvisations’ technique. This technique gives the opportunity to discover and work with their connection between mind and body. Recognising tension and breaking unaware movement habits, in order to be in control of their own physical instrument and continue growing creatively, technically and emotionally.
Taking this preparation to then move over to learning given choreography,exploring how to find yourself in learning situation and taking on material.
Sita works with a game of images, situations, feelings, rhythm,
to support your research on your very own totality in ever changing circumstances. Her physicality is built on full embodied fast rhythmical changes of emotions and Images.
The movement language is expressive, fluent, sensual and earthy. The unique animalistic movement language that arises from our human instincts is her particular and peculiar signature in dance.
