The “Training & Education Group/ViennaSchoolOFF” is happy to present the detailed schedule of our online/offline event “8 + 3” = Be/Well/Come.

There will be an onlineconference on best practice training (and education) during the pandemic, a future-of-training workshop and informal evening hang-outswith virtual company and real drinks.

Yet most of all, we would like to invite you to participate in the actual training that take place in in real venues in Vienna. We would like to invite you to test-drive and try the scores proposed by Bianca Braunesberger, Lisa Bunderla, Imani Rameses and Tomaž Simatović. The training-scores have been developed during the 8 training days backed-up by the T&E team.

All questions about how, when and where will be answered during the 1st general conference Thursday at 8pm and at all later occasions. If you are interested to participate, please send us an email to access the links  for online events and recieve updated information. wp.trainingeducation@gmail.com

Be/Well/Come Vol 2.

From 12-14 November the Wiener Perspektive Training & Education group warmly invites you to peer to peer exchange online and outside following current covid restrictions and hosted by Tanzquartier Vienna. The days are an open invitation to come, go and stay as you like.

The precise schedule will be available on Wednesday evening (we're working on it right now :-)

Please, if you are interested to participate send us an email so that we can make sure to pass you the different links and updated information. wp.trainingeducation@gmail.com

Based on the experiences from Be/Well/Come at TQW in 2018 and the three-day session VSOFF Mentoring – Summer Edition at toZomia in August 2020, we develop games, establish a dialogue and share oracle-like experiences now adapted to online and outdoors. The motto for the one on one situations will be “silent mail”, a process in which the elements of previous experiences will be revisited by means of a dynamic that involves active reception, translation and creative misunderstandings. The three days will also include sharing of material from the feedback training as well as two online conversations in bigger groups 1. focusing on peer to peer exchange for alternative training in covid times and 2. Discussing professional training in Vienna with a more long term perspective. Please come to share your knowledge and questions. Even your short or silent presence, online and offline, changes and enriches this event - we look forward to being more or less together!

ViennaSchoolOFF Mentoring - Summer Edition

2nd-4th of August 2020 at TOZOMIA Art Space

This is a CALL for a three days practice-based gathering by and for freelance artists interested in the Viennese dance and performance scene.

The recent lockdown has forced us to look again at where we (literally and not) stand as artists, to re-think how we use our resources, how we defend the value of our work and how it is financially sustainable. We feel it is now more than ever an important moment to gather collectively.
The motivation for the “ViennaSchoolOFF Mentoring - Summer Edition” stems from a shared interest in the possibilities and understandings of what Mentoring is/ has been/ can be. It also comes from the urgent desire of creating a wayward place for exchange and knowledge production in the field of Performing Arts, Artistic Research, Dance and Choreography in Austria. We intend to propose encounters to give attention to each other, to understand further each other’s artistic work and practice, to strengthen a sense of community, encounters of generations, times and history.

The three days of  “ViennaSchoolOFF Mentoring - Summer Edition“ invites us to both give and receive.
We will propose an overall schedule to facilitate small group encounters as well as 1on1 “blind dates” in a joyous counter-intuitive fashion: we will throw the dice, match-make in analogue breakout-rooms, randomise our meetings. The 3-days build on the ViennaSchoolOFF strategy of  “doing the thing while also talking, thinking and reflecting about it.”

“VSOFF Mentoring - Summer Edition” is open for anyone who wishes to gather, to exchange around the afore-mentioned topics, to be here now! And for a future! Possibly together!

Please register by stating your interest to participate by sending an email to wp.trainingeducation@gmail.com by the 26th of July 2020.

The Current active artists organising the “Mentoring - Summer Edition” are Alina Tretinjak, Alix Eynaudi, Anne Juren, Charlotta Ruth, Claudia Fürnholzer, Krõõt Juurak, K.T. Zakravsky, Liv Schellander, Mariella Greil, Navina Neverla, Philipp Gehmacher, Sebastian Bechinger, Samuel Feldhandler, Tomaz Simatovic.

.....................................................................................

The Wiener Perspektive Training & Education group invites to an online conversation and test-run on the topic of „Mentoring“.

12th May 17-18.30
13th May 17-18.30

For access to the zoom-link please write to training@tqw.at stating your date of choice.
Registration for both days possible but not necessary.

Mentoring is a subtle relationship, neither formal teacher-student-relationship nor feedback nor therapy nor friendship between peers, yet close to all those relationships and transgressed by them.

Together we would like to exchange on how we can use the current deceleration for dialogue in the dance & performance scene, with the possibility to bridge it to the Wiener Perspektive TQW-event in October/November this autumn: Vienna School OFF 8+1 (originally scheduled April 2020).


We're looking forward to talking and listening to you next week!
