Eva’s class capitalises on her Choreographic and Choreological perspectives on movement. In her professional classes she uses these lenses, developing a distinctive style of teaching that places strong emphasis on both physical and compositional aspects of our dancing. The class prepares the dancers to work beyond mechanics by promoting an understanding and an active engagement through decision making with compositional aspects embedded in the tasks. The class promotes dialogue and communication through movement as well as acknowledgement of the aesthetic impression of the overall dance scene (of which our input is one of many).
This week she will focus on exploring effort and rhythm in movement, and she will share some of the methods used in her work to create moving partnerships based on rhythmic mechanisms. The class will be based on exploratory tasks of an improvisational nature, with clear parameters to focus our practice. Eva’s class grows in pace and physicality, deeply rooting the body.
