approach

What is Ahtuf Kontrol all about? Interested in creativity?

Building relationships and connecting from the heart through creative arts, Ahtuf Kontrol is striving to become part of a community.
So often people we meet have low self-esteem or believe that they are not the creative type.
As children, we learn many things that stick with us for the rest of our lives.
A block on our expressive self can lead to all sorts of health problems. Social relationships become strained and pitted with difficulties.
Ahtuf Kontrol is an environment where it is safe to explore and release the inner voice. We know that everyone has a creative life and we inspire and support that creativity to flourish.

We want to bring innovation

Ahtuf Kontrol is a play on words. We thought it did not work or be understood. After a few years, we realise that the art of control is totally what this project umbrella is.
Create an environment for innovation in music performance and art.

AHTUF KONTROL - DANCE AND MUSIC 

Ahtuf Kontrol is an environment where it is safe to explore and release the inner voice. We know that everyone has a creative life and we inspire and support that creativity to flourish.

Live Performance

2017 in Brighton Festival, a week long residency at the Verdict.

A week-long residency at the Verdict with a trio and Mike dancing allowed Ahtuf Kontrol to have the freedom to experiment. We played hour-long sets, responding to the movement and interacting with an audience.

A lot has happened since then. We will be presenting more live performance later in the year. During the last year, other projects and collaborators have emerged. A new project is beginning at the end of July 2020.

Regular Rehearsal Sessions

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.Few people have the imagination for reality.Without haste, but without rest.  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Learn by doing.
Starting with improvisation, Ahtuf Kontrol finds a voice and then expresses it. Regular Monday rehearsals, revisiting movements and sounds give the foundation for performance.
To be present at the moment and deliver can only be done through rehearsal and dialogue.

COLLABORATION

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” . Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To play music and dance with new people coming into the projects that we devise enables AK to develop new skills and polish our performance.

Already during the lockdown, two videos and eight people have connected with us and give us the confidence to begin new and exciting projects.
The main focus is to improve our collaborative skills and expand our network and reach.
