This workshop will include Contact Technique, Experiential Anatomy, Partnering Improvisation and Instant Composition.
In this workshop we will focus on exploring basic subtle principles of movement in order to deeply understand one’s weight and how it organizes within one’s body structure and mobile alignment. How it distributes and relates to the shift of the inclination of the body axis, shift of levels and spatial motion.
Learning how monitoring and balancing one’s own structure can be the Main Key for effortless and agile relating in contact, discarding therefore the equation in which contact means always baring of weight or crashing. Falling or rising, getting-offering support, leaning, tracking and following, flying and landing having as main tool one’s own ability to organize a fluid self-alignment at all times, managing wisely and efficiently the distribution of weight in motion and collaborating in it.
We will look at how empowering individual awareness and independence in partnering can inform one’s own choices and therefore nourish the relation.
How it enables the access to our own imagination, our ability to play and create. Hence how we can enjoy creative dialectics in our improvisations, being at ease in the unknown, welcoming questions, variations of tone, tempos, composing and enabling abstraction or narratives to arise from our dances.
“I believe any form of art can be considered a fundamental tool for human expression, a tool to investigate, relate and bridge, to explore one self, reality and going beyond it”.
