week 27th-30th May

The class will work on technique and creativity, through set material and through improvisation.
The goal is to acquire the maximum of physical awareness, in order to access our full potential.
I look for adaptability, different textures, speeds, qualities, rhythms, dynamics in order to broaden our performance. I see technique as a tool to access more possibilities of awareness and of physical expression.
We will practice floor work, grounding of the body and on dynamic movement.
I believe in the expressive power of dance. Therefore through improvisation we will study how to access what we want to communicate, which tools we can use (velocity, tension, flexibility) to transform our physical speech.
We look for detailed movement within the engagement of the full body. The goal is to strengthen the specificity of each body to find an honest, powerful and individual way of moving.
