Dancing through states
The first part of this class is dedicated to being as conscious as possible of the way we organize our body in space, to be as precise as possible about the choices we make, in order to be aware of the infinite possibilities we have. Starting from a slow exploration of our options to organize ourselves in the space, we will go through tasks that will help us to increase our awareness in moving, so that we will make a fun and complex path of our way through space, miles away from the choices we usually make.
Then we will spice things up with tools that are part of my creation process. The main idea is to be able to use our imagination to create and go through physical and mental states that affect our bodies as well as the space around us. Moving from abstract and matter-related states (melting, shaking) to more theatrical ones (drunken, numb), we will create new patterns of movement that will help us evolve as characters, with their own way to capture their surroundings.
