Music was feet-fitted indeed! – First part of the highly successful contemporary music and dance course completed with great results

Floating movements and artistic postures, voice training and body drumming:  Music of Our Age – Musical Feet experimental workshop realized by Philharmonia Hungary in cooperation with –EEA Grants was held last year between 29 November and 1 December in Pécs. The project was initiated to develop new approaches in music and dance teaching to bring classical music closer to schoolchildren applying elements of contemporary dance and eurythmics.
_GAB2308The program consisting three workshops is sponsored by the EEA Grants has welcomed twenty-two young participants representing various branches of arts. Kodály Centre and Zsolnay Cultural Quarter provided inspirational venues for the creative workshops. By offering top quality concert experiences for nearly 280 000 children every year, Philharmonia Hungary Non-profit Ltd plays an important role in the musical education of the young generation. As Szabolcs Szamosi executive director, also well-known as organist and conductor, pointed out: „The three-parted course that comes to an end in the spring of 2017 has been focusing on developing a new experimental teamwork-based educational model, involving methods crafted by  participating performers, students, music and dance experts. The results of their creative work will be presented in the spring of 2017 at Music of Our Age Festival hosted by Philharmonia Hungary.”

_GAB2355Csaba Horváth director-coreographer, professor of  University of Theatre and Film Arts, who had created several iconic contemporary dance theatre performances  and won several awards, was invited to lead the project as art director, supported by outstanding choreographers, musicians and professors. By forming a new model based on movements, gestures, body language and dance, this project is destined to enhance improvisation skills and the unspoiled consciousness of body young children naturally possess; attracting special interest by pupils and teachers alike. Csaba Horváth underlined:  „Generally, young children are not really familiar with the expressive power of music and dance. This makes the task of involving them into this activity such an exciting challenge. Using music and movement improvisations we do our best to help them to express their inner thoughts and feelings.”

_GAB2630The methodological project supported by Philharmonia Hungary Non-profit Ltd was welcomed students with a special focus and interest in contemporary arts, classical music and with a commitment to teaching. On the closing day of the course, one of the twenty-two participants, Rozi Kemény actress, teacher of drama pedagogy said: “My primary goal here is getting a kind of toolsbox for arts education I can successfully utilize in the classroom. I deeply believe in experience-based education by which children have the opportunity to learn through their own perception.

The courses include a dance seminar led by Livia Fusch, dance historian and a body-drumming program instructed by András Dés jazz musician. Additionally, Evelin Tóth singer and actor presented the new SoundSearch method in action and all participants were invited to try their skills in dance improvisations and in dramatic situations under the guidance of choreographers Csaba Horváth, Norbert Nagy, Barnabás Horkai and Kristóf Widder._GAB2856
