April Workshops with Karim Nagi

 

RHYTHM FOR DANCERS: 

It's time to raise the bar for rhythmic literacy! A dancer's immediate connection to the music is the rhythm produced by the Tabla and percussion. Karim teaches each rhythm using the three-sound clapping approach. Karim then performs sample rhythms on the Tabla. Students will learn each rhythm by name, "dum-tak" vocalization, and clapping. Afterwards the dancers will learn choreography segments to help gain bodily control with the sample rhythm, putting theory into practice. By physically personifying each Rhythm, bodily mastery of that rhythm will be achieved. This movement workshop is perfect for any dancer who wants to better understand what they are dancing to.

 

 

MAQAM and TAQSIM FOR DANCERS: 

Maqam is the Arabic system of scales and melody creation. All songs, whether classical, pop or dance, are created in a Maqam, which dictates whether the song is happy, somber, uplifting, spiritual or sensual. We align notes in the scale with specific body isolations, allowing them to follow a maqam by using her dance vocabulary. Dancers will learn how to recognize, sing and move to maqams by learning famous song examples. Special attention will be given to Taqsim, the art of instrumental solo improvisation. The dancer will practice interpreting the instrumental music into movement and personifying the mood of the music. This workshop is vital for dancers who wish to better interpret melody into movement.

 

RHYTHM FOR DANCERS:

リズム能力を向上させる機会がやってきましたよ!タブラやパーカッションから発せられるリズムは、ダンサーが音楽とつながるための入口となるものです。カリームは、まず手拍子で3つの音を鳴らす方法(スリー・サウンド・クラッピング)を用いて各リズムを教えます。次に、タブラでリズムのパターンを示します。受講生は、各リズムの名前を覚えてから、「dum-tak」発声法と手拍子によってそれぞれのリズムを学びます。その後、部分的に振り付けを加えた練習を行い、リズムに合わせて体の動きをコントロールすることを学びます。つまり、理論を実践していくのです。各リズムを体で表現しながら身につけていきます。体の動きに着目するこのワークショップは、自分が何に対して踊っているのかをよりよく理解したいと望んでいるダンサーに最適なワークショップです。

 

 

MAQAM and TAQSIM FOR DANCERS:

マカームは、アラビア音楽の音階と旋律の体系です。クラシックソングであれ、ポップソングであれ、ダンスソングであれ、すべての楽曲がマカームによって作られているのです。マカームによってその曲の雰囲気(幸福感、物悲しさ、高揚感、精神性、官能性など)が決まります。ダンサーは、自分が既に習得した動きを使いこなしながら、音階の音符と特定のアイソレーションを一致させて、アイソレーションがマカームに沿うように踊るのです。このワークショップでは、有名な曲からマカームを感じ取り、そしてそれに合わせて歌って踊るための方法を学びます。特にタクシーム(楽器のソロ即興演奏)をよく聴くことを学びます。楽器の演奏を聴いてその通りに体を動かす練習、そして音楽の雰囲気を体で表現する練習をします。このワークショップは、体の動きで旋律を表現する技能を上達させたいと願っているダンサーに必須のワークショップです。
