The body as a dynamic object
Our body is the same in every movement and in any style but the possibility to change is essential. We focus on the principal of adaptation during the workshop.
Through several exercises, we establish a strong body where the focus is on the timing and the sharp reactions. We practice alone and with a partner as well.
The material is based on several different ways of partnering that I learned throughout my practices, and on material/technique that I developed during creations and research on my own.
Dynamic and powerful dance where we only deal with a physicality that defines the essential movements.
In the workshop, we go through various combinations to experience power, support, speed, acrobatic movements and the unique feeling of connection.
