Naïma Mazic | Patricia Carolin Mai | Reut Shemesh
GET IT ON
While the International Summer Festival continues at Kampnagel throughout August, we welcome our K3 residency choreographers of the 18/19 season – Patricia C. Mai, Naïma Mazic und Reut Shemesh – who will be coming to Hamburg in mid-August to settle into K3 for their eight-month residency.
Kicking-off this new season, we invite artists from Hamburg to come meet and greet the “newcomers” arriving from Hamburg, Vienna and Israel, in order to get to know their proposals and approaches in shared workshops.
Much like at Treffen Total, it’s all about what all participants bring with them.
We’ll begin with each of the three choreographers offering a workshop related to their residency proposals. The studios will be open for four days of experimentation and networking. K3 will provide infrastructure and lunch. Patricia C. Mai’s proposal is a continuation of her research on bodies in extreme situations. She will be examining the ways in which contrasts between states of normality and states of emergency affect groups. Naïma Mazic will be dealing with the relationships between dance and jazz, while exploring the ways in which rhythm manifests itself in dance and the influence of jazz polyrhythms on movement qualities. Reut Shemesh will be working with the repetitive physical rituals of closed social groups, as well as their social manifestations.

Kampnagel - K3
Naïma Mazicis founder of the company n ï m. She was part of danceWEB15 & the Hip-Hop Continuum of Jacob’s Pillow, studied at P.A.R.T.S., the Reykjavik Academy of Arts, and the Vienna Conservatory. Her focus is the exploration of the relationship between dance and music through rhythm within the field of Jazz.
In the K3-Residency 18/19 Naïma Mazic continues to explore the relationship between Dance and Jazz Music. She investigates how rhythm manifests itself in dance and how different rhythmicalities change the quality of movement. Through the work with polyrhythms Naïma wants to slow down and speed up time within time, and let dance and music communicate within that friction. Her recent questions are: How can tools and specificities of Jazz Music flourish within dance? How can the pulse between dancers and musicians be shared? What makes movement groove and swing?
Patricia Carolin Mai
Patricia Carolin Mai produces stage pieces as a dancer and choreographer with production locations at Kampnagel and at K3 - Hamburg, at LOFFT - DAS THEATER Leipzig and at Ringlokschuppen Mülheim an der Ruhr. The focus of her choreographic work is the investigation of the body as a central repository of memories. 2016 - 2019 she developed her trilogy on "bodies in extreme states" with the pieces Ready to Snap (2016), Balagan Body (2018) & HAMONIM (2019). In summer 2019, she accepted Ninety9 Art Company's invitation to Seoul in Korea to work in GAL-GAL on women's self-empowerment in Korean society. For this work she was awarded the "International Choregraphy Award Goyang 2020". In 2020, she explored the limits of her physical performance in the 12-month solo self-experiment KONTROL, questioning cultural normalisations of body and gender. She choreographed ASTERISM (2021) and ANIMA (2022) by multimedia composer Alexander Schubert, as well as the group piece OR (2022) for the Company of the Leipzig Dance Theatre. For the years 2020 - 2023 Patricia Carolin Mai has received conceptual funding from the City of Hamburg and continues with WAHN, UND SO KAMEN WIR ZUSAMMEN and RAUSCH. Eine Revision (AT), she continues her work on the theme of "Practices of Community". In 2023, together with 100 participants and in co-production with Kampnagel and K3, she will venture a look at the history of Tanzwut and complete the trilogy.
Reut Shemeshstudied choreography at ArtEZ (NL) and completed a Masters at the Academy of Media Arts (Cologne). Alongside her creative work, she is teaching choreography in several Universities. Shemesh's artistic spectrum ranges from contemporary choreography through experimental film to poetry. Her works were presented in many venues and festivals.
Shemesh will dedicate a research to the exposure of the female Hasidic identity, by looking at embodied repetitive rituals, their social manifestation, their effect on gender roles in regard to her personal biography. Throughout the process of incorporating such rituals in contemporary practice, Shemesh will be using different working strategies such as re-enactment photography, and interviews. The project's aim is the creation of a contemporary group piece, with both, contemporary dancers and femaleorthodox Jews from the local community.
