Event Description

This dance and movement workshop will unfold in three parts, Breaking Points, Flying Low Technique and Improvisation/ Composition. Breaking Points This Physical Movement Practice offers, a dancer/mover to critically develop a skill-set and physical intelligence by actively deconstructing the current movement vocabulary he/she has, in order to create a risk-based space for exploration leading to an encountering of the next physical challenge that pushes the body to go deep into their own dance language derived consciously through stepping out of one's comfort zone. Flying low This technique focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor, utilizing simple movement patterns, speed, alertness, awareness of space and other fellow dancers, and spirals which explore cohesion and expansion of the body. Improvisation/Composition. In these sessions, you will be provided with different frames of work, tasks and methods that include understanding spaces and performance, body control, exchange of weight with a partner using contact work, etc. This module will invite you to practice and expand your awareness, of what your interests are relating to the movement or physical performance, how you make choices and help you navigate your process of creativity and composition. Although very physical, the class will follow a clear structure never breaking the flow but systematically guiding one from the beginning to the end, maintaining a synergy of one energy that binds all, with non-judgmental but a friendly approach.
