PUZZLE WORK opens the door to an endless variety of different combinations within your
DANCE by playing, organizing and reorganizing your body in simple, more complex and in
many different ways it allows you to keep playful all the time while dancing.
HOW COLOURFULL YOUR DANCING CAN BE? the body functions the way we wish or
rather how we allow it to function.
This game of Puzzle Work is a never-ending process and a never-ending game if we wish so
and allow it to be. Each body has its own BALANCE, its own LOGIC and its own LIMITATIONS.
I feel lucky today to be discovering where my balance is and where my limitations are and
how I can transform and integrate that in my dancing.
Anton Lachky-Puzzle Work
If I take 6 different numbers compared to the lock of a bike, the variety of number
combinations is endless - that’s how we keep our bike safe:)
DANCING IS NOT THE NUMBER and WE ARE NOT THE BIKE LOCK but with 6 different
movements we can play an endless game with the body depending on the order of
movements. How large is the scale of our movement? That’s where ENDLESSNESS steps in.
How many possibilities do we have? As I mentioned before we are not a bike lock and
movements are not numbers but with what speed frame, size, texture, intension and in
which context and most importantly with what FEELING do we move?
DO WE ALL HAVE ACESS TO THE SPEED?
Yes, we do.
WHO IS PUZZLE WORK FOR? Any dancer and mover of any category who loves to move
and wants to discover his/her physical possibilities, his/her abilities and his/her own
coordination skills. Dancers who like to be challenged and who are willing to learn more.
Is it only for contemporary dancers? Absolutely not, it’s for any dancer who loves physical
challenges (urban dance, ballet, circus, acrobats, gymnasts and any other movement lovers).
