Gregor Kamnikar


Gregor Kamnikar
(1971) researches playfulness and movement as a performer, choreographer, teacher, writer, clown. Since 25th April 2011, the day he seized to work as an artist named Gregor Kamnikar, uses new artistic name for each new artistic endeavour he gets involved in. As a teacher he has been devising an open source trademarked practice/training/game of bodily-kinestetic intelligence, dubbed Plasma since 2001, that comes now in form of – yes, I see you are reading this thoroughly – a movement game. As a member of Federacija Collective (with Andreja Rauch Podrzavnik and Snježana Premuš), he has been devising application and integration of movement and dance in educational processes of children (from 3 and up to 18 years old) in kindergarden and schools and other institutions since 2009, and is (Federacija Collective) intensively collaborating with program Creative Movement at Faculty of Pedagogy at University of Ljubljana. So, the idea of shared teaching process which is at the core of CoTeaching, is permeating his teaching career and stems in his belief that shared teaching is constitutional to the teaching itself.

CoTeaching is a format that understands the teaching act as a learning act. It provides multiple perspectives and asymmetrical organization of teaching processes which facilitate (re)active teaching and learning experiences. It is a way of creating knowledge in which two, three or more teachers teach the same dance training or a workshop.

Co-Teaching creates a space for dialogue, openness and constant negotiation in order to step into the unknown which allows us to find new possibilities and strategies in our practice. The Rules of the training are specified through certain scores which are adaptable to specific situation, participants and intention of the work to be done.

Co-Teaching is a format that was developed within the Nomad Dance Academy Network and  has been realized in the last years in Slovenia, Macedonia, Croatia.
