REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES INCLUDING YOUNG AUDIENCES – AND THEIR FEELINGS by Tiina Mölder (EST)
‘mindStuff’ is the name of the latest performance by Estonian choreographer Tiina Mölder. In this short workshop we will be presented for different ways of opening op the thoughts feeling and emotions of the young participant – and different ways of including the young spectators in the final work.
Tiina Mölder is one of the choreographers connected with Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava, a new built dancing space of Talllin. STL is located in the new theatre center in Tallinn – VabaLava – which is being developed to become a local performing art center for the free-lance artists and artists residencies. Tiina Mölder graduated the Tallinn University’s dance department and improved herself in different workshops, but mainly through the work experience as a dance maker and movement teacher. She has worked as a dancer with various choreographers from Estonia and abroad, among others with Jarmo Karing, Katrin Essenson, Thomas Lehmen (Germany), Kaja Kann (Estonia), Jenni Kivelä (Finland) and Cid Pearlman (USA).
Tiina is founding member of dance collective called United dancers of Zuga (1999). Throughout the years different artists have participated in the various adventurous performances of ZUGA. Most important and interesting for company are the people with whom company is working. There is no authoritarian leadership. Zuga’s works have been created in collaboration. ZUGA loves to have the audience to be part of the performance and takes it onto the stage to enliven the relations between performers and spectators. One important part of ZUGAS work is performances for kids and collective works with youngsters.’
