For Tomas Bünger, dance is bodily exploration. His contemporary dance training is based on his years of experience as a professional dancer and works with influences from ballet and yoga.
The focus is on the perception of inner and outer space and the alternation between form and freedom. The training trains coordination and creates an awareness of rhythm and musicality. The relationship to the floor and to one's own body center is essential here. Furthermore, he works on the possibility of inventing his own movement texts and placing them in a theatrical context. Starting from one's own person, one then turns to a counterpart and in the end sees oneself as part of a group.
Tomas Bünger also teaches a special training for people with Parkinson's disease.
