IÑAKI AZPILLAGA

Dynamic Changes

Class:

The classes are addressed to dancers and actors with physical training background interested in dance as an artistic form of expression. Movement is the ruler of the work.
In the classes, senses and feelings are for a big deal the origin of movement and the shapes get organized as a consequence.
Partner and floor work with high doses of energy and dynamic changes will share the attention in the class.

Without wanting to impose an aesthetic, the movements often look pretty pedestrian, humans like everyday’s actions.
The tools used in the class are easily applicable to any other ways of moving. We will boost shifts between states of power and fragility and observe the influence on the rhythm of the proposed dance language.
