CONTEMPORARY DANCE CLASS
The work consists of a combination of dynamic release techniques and floor work intertwined with improvisational elements designed to open and expand the possibilities of the movement , stimulating the source of the energy and playing with natural principles in body and space (gravitation, relaxation of muscles and energy flow).
The work is organic and dynamic and is developed in different sessions: floor work, standing exercises, jumps and acrobatic elements, combinations encompassing the entire space.
Continuous movement flow, partner-work, improvisation, awareness of musicality, and the use of imagery bring the class into a journey throughout a deep physical body warming up. Rather than focusing on specific body forms, the technique works on finding clear geometric energy patterns running through the mind, body and space, which drive the movement with momentum.
The class follows a clear structure never breaking the flow, systematically guiding from the beginning to the end.
IMPROVISATION AND INSTANT COMPOSITION
The work offer a space to explore the multi-faceted awareness of a dancer/ performer in a holistic, playful manner. A physical warm-up leads us into an exploration of movement qualities, dynamics, interaction and listening through individual research, group work and partnering. The work invites us to inhabit and to challenge our personal, authentic qualities, gradually building towards instant composition, little “stories” in space, which we will participate and observe. All these tasks serve as instruments to reach a certain field where our personal presence, with its own specific language, is engaged and allowed to express itself.
