Carried by fun facts and some juicy tunes, in this 1,5 hour long walk, which is a cooperation with Salzburg‘s blog „Fräulein Flora“, you will come to meet professional dancers from different backgrounds. Along with some fun insights into their respective styles, they will teach you some basic movements.

Date: 28.8. – 01.09.
Location: Bad Gastein, Hotel SELINA

For the third time already, Flavourama is offering its special format of education:

a 5-day Intensive Dance Retreat in Bad Gastein, a beautiful valley in the middle of the Austrian Alps.

A maximum of 20 people will have the unique opportunity to be part of a very special retreat with a mentorship by two renowned, professional Hip Hop and House dancers – this year with Alesya Dobysh (NED) and Linda Hayford (FR).

Within those five days, the participants will have several dance classes, theory lessons and intimate talks with their mentors, who are specialized in working in theatre and performance contexts. Additionally, there will be group activities like an Alpine Hut Hike, a Yoga Class beneath a waterfall and a Jam night, to get together and share the love for dancing. The focus of these 5 days is to deepen your personal journey of creative work in different contexts, be it for performances in the theatre, for shows or battles. As for dance styles, it will be focused on Hip Hop and House Dance – but as both of the mentors are very versatile in their art, the Retreat is definitely precious for dancers of all kinds of Street and Club dances.

By the end of the week, a small performance will be developed, which will be performed at the jam night in Hotel Selina in Bad Gastein.

We have a cooperation with Hotel Selina, where the Retreat will take place:

Date & Time: 1. September 2022, 7pm
Location: TOIHAUS Theatre (Address: Franz-Josef-Straße 4 – 5020 Salzburg)

The new format “Flavourama Performatory” will give music and dance artists of street & club cultures the chance to show their skills in a theatre setting. Selected by Flavourama’s artistic board, a total of six acts, three of music randomly combined with three of dance, will come together to improvise in front of an audience. The focus for the performers will lie on spontaneity of creating in the moment and using the stage as a performative playground to explore their disciplines. Join them on their journey on September 1st, 2022 at 7pm in Toihaus Salzburg!

Besides the selected artists, Alesya Dobysh (NL) and Linda Hayford (FR), two internationally renowned dancers and choreographers, will perform their solos on the stage of Toihaus. In the past 10 years, Alesya Dobysh has mastered footwork-oriented styles such as House Dance and UK Jazz Fusion, studied fundamentals of contemporary dance, actively participated in the “battle” scene and took prizes of international dance festivals. She continues to develop her own movement aesthetic in her personal research and will perform the solo “Stop making sense”.

Although Linda Hayford is best known as an ambassador for popping, her dance practice has evolved through the encounter between genres and moves. Taking a crossover of styles as her starting point, the choreographer seeks an aesthetic focused on metamorphosis. Her inaugural solo “Shapeshifting” materializes the power represented by the passage from one form to another in an intimate fresco that deploys a succession of chimeras.

Get your ticket and see you at Toihaus at 7pm!

 

Date & Time: 1. September 2022, 8.30pm
Location: TOIHAUS Theatre (Address: Franz-Josef-Straße 4 – 5020 Salzburg)

With Niki Awandee (SE) as a host, you will have the chance to ask questions, take part in the discussion, or simply listen and learn from international experts in the field. Alesya Dobysh (NL), Linda Hayford (FR), Jade Fehlmann (FR) and LaTasha Barnes (US) will travel to Salzburg to share their experiences and opinions with you.

Get your ticket and come to listen or to join the discussion at 8.30pm at Toihaus Salzburg!
