MARKO FONSECA

inPRACTICAL

Class:

This workshop focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the ground and the air. The class uses simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and the joints, which enter and leave the earth more efficiently. The focus is to develop a movement at different levels - up and down, different supports and look for the balance of different parts of the body.

We start by means of games that awaken the body and the mind, they are urged to connect with the environment: the air, the soil, and the energy of others, forming an interconnection. Later we focus on short movement exercises where we will take the body to: draw spirals, weight control works, displacement through space, speed, precision and motors of movement that connect us to the final sentences.

We will also identify work in pairs and relationship aspects such as: confidence, weight, instinct, conscience, leaders and followers. The flow in physical communication depends on the awareness of a shared equilibrium. We will work with predefined situations, which will be based on the trust of others. Then we can assume more risks playing with power and speed. Participants are invited to bring their own ideas, explore and rediscover their own qualities.
