Upon invitation of Jennifer Lacy, ten international Contemporary Dance teachers, mostly working transnationally, gathered in Vienna to discuss and research around the theme of independent study and swap meeting. The independent studies included taking advantage of other faculty members present for the festival ImPulsTanz and the global program of courses. The swap meet came in by encountering other people's points of study and swapping with them in some way, either as mentor, participant or pure trade of interests and information. The participating artists were encouraged to already submit an idea to everybody else before the beginning of ttt. Looking at each other's proposals, they then decided where their affinities meet and grouped them up during the days and during the week. On July 31, the studies were presented in the form of a "school" to a greater community of around 30 participants.

+ How - if at all - did you interpret the theme "swap meet"? Did you specifically chose to swap with a persion/biography or rather with someone's body of work?

I did not do any swapping, I dont think. Swapping was not one of the big methodical highlights of the meetings for me.

A swap meet is a gathering of exchange. People bring stuff that they have collected to give away and trade for other people’s accumulations. Convened by Jennifer Lacey, and supported within the context of Impulstanz (Week 3), the ttt 2010 was a swap meet for 10 dance artists and various guests.

Port De Bras - Somatically - Some partial notes

what follows below are notes of my response to an exercise that involved being taught some movement material by one teacher and then teaching what we had just learned from our own fresh experience of it – a further challenge was to try to learn and re-teach something unfamiliar

The experience with ttt 2010 still guids me well through all artistic and/or teaching processes. In our group we represented so many different knowledges, practises and techniques that yet alone to find a common language and to shed light on related interests was an adventure in itself.

Teaching The Teachers without being a Teacher.

What an embarrassing position... on day one, my first disclaimer:
I'm sorry I'm not a teacher...

I sit here at my desk in Urbana, Il and orient myself to you, my fellow teachers. I hear the wind blowing the ice against the side of the house and I can see the branches of the tree outside push against the coming blizzard. The heat is coming up through vents in the floor. The keys click.
