I would like to invite you to our studio.
This is important to me because without you, what I do doesn't make a lot of sense. My art, my projects arise from working together with the audience.
Why should such a meeting be important for you too? This question is relevant to me. Can you maybe tell me something about that? Why would you accept my invitation?
When we meet, I can assure you that we’ll have something to share – an artistic question, a situation, a gesture, a movement, a choreography that is slowly growing between us. And when you come back, you will be able to see where our exchange is going.
There isn't much more I could write about right now. We need to get together first to find out more about our meeting. What is the OPEN STUDIO? An attempt at an encounter? A time to work together? The first rehearsal for a new piece?
I hope to meet you soon,
Impressions of our digital OPEN STUDIOS in December 2020.
Since 2014, Jenny Beyer, together with her artistic partners Nina Wollny, Chris Leuenberger, Matthew Rogers (till 2019), Jetzmann, Anne Kersting and Igor Dobricic (a.o.), has been offering OPEN STUDIOS in Hamburg and researching practices of encounter and movement on equal terms between artists and audiences. Since then, they have developed four pieces (Liebe, 2015, Glas, 2016, Fluss, 2017 and Début, 2019) in close dialogue with non-professional, curious spectators. Meeting audience forms the basis and breeding ground for artistic research by turning it into a shared dance practice. Supported by funding from the city of Hamburg, Jenny Beyer & Team – in collaboration with international colleagues and students of the Contemporary Dance Education MA program in Frankfurt and the dance school HZT Berlin – have recently extended their dialogic radius to raise the choreographic question, “How does movement move us?”
