Luisa Sancho Escanero

Luisa began studying ballet in her hometown of Zaragoza in Northern Spain and continued under the instruction of acclaimed ballet teacher María de Ávila. She gained her first professional experience at Northern Ballet Theatre in Leeds, England, and at Ballett Zürich, Switzerland. She performed as a soloist at Ballet Biarritz, Compañía Metros under Ramón Oller, Komische Oper Berlin, Pretty Ugly Tanz Köln under Amanda Miller, Ballet Madrid, Introdans and Ballettmainz. At the same time, she worked as a freelance artist for international productions at a range of institutions including The Forsythe Company, the Edinburgh International Festival and Cirque du Soleil.
      Luisa has been collaborating with Jacopo Godani for several years on the creation of numerous artistic, cultural and educational projects. Her contribution has been to play an essential role in the research which focuses on the development of ideas, concepts and professional strategies that define Godani’s work outside the ballet studio.
      As choreographic assistant, she has been responsible for Godani’s creations at the Royal Ballet of Flanders, Ballettmainz, Ballet of the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz in Munich and the Finnish National Ballet. Based on Godani’s choreographic work and teachings, she has led workshops, given master classes and conducted auditions in Israel, Australia, Spain, the United States, Monaco and Germany.
      From July 2015 until August 2018 she has been Artistic Coordinator and Representative of the Artistic Direction at the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company. Since September 2018 she is the Representative to the Artistic Director Jacopo Godani, collaborating with him in the areas of dramaturgy, artistic research and artistic coordination, and in creating the company’s program of performances.
      She is currently responsible for the educational programs, workshops and master classes at the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company and its educational partners: Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden and Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Frankfurt am Main. At the latter institution, she mentors young dance professionals in the MA CoDE (Master of Contemporary Dance Education) program. Since 2016 she has been a Lecturer in the master’s program Cultural Educational Projects in Schools, at Philipps University in Marburg, Germany.

About the Workshop

Participants will discover Jacopo Godani´s choreographic work:

Searching for a state of physicality, bringing more clarity and awareness into the perceptual experience of a choreographic situation – key-question for those artists involved at work with the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company,

Applying deliberately choreographic decisions and organic intuitions,

Fighting against randomness, unconsciousness and automatic reactions. The perception of this fight is a determining presence on Godani´s choreographies. When a choreographic decision is made without awareness in the process, there is a lack of information; there are mechanics, structures, coordination, etc. that are being lost. To avoid this lacking, priorities and qualities are communicated explicitly in rehearsal. Textures, speed, and visual focuses in the choreography, are agreed upon and made conscious even before starting the current physical work.

Values such as individuality, group work, responsibility, awareness and reception of advance knowledge collect a new meaning in this artistic environment  – shaping through the creative process the outcome of the group itself.

A process of building up scenes with choreographic actions, with which there is a process installed to break down mental patterns and habits – making participants aware agents of this situation.

Participants will experience how this basis can be applied in a much more broaden sense, improving their relationship and their knowledge with movement, dance and choreography art.
