Fire and Earth is a dynamic class drawing from Sabrina's and Verena's versatile backgrounds and inspirations for their performance work including floor work, flying low, capoeira and martial arts.
These elements are fused into a class focussing on grounding, efficiency, fluidity and connection through the whole body, challenging the momentum of body weight when shifting through space and in and out of the floor through acrobatic transitions.
The workshop will conclude exploring partnering and improvisation.
Verena is a performer based in London, working for Hagit Yakira Dance, Chhaya Collective as well as performing in her own work as part of Infinite Project with Sabrina Gargano. Alongside performing, Verena teaches dance to various levels and undertakes a Psychology Degree in Germany. As a choreographer she is interested in researching truth in movement language and finding connections with the psychology of experiences and meaning. A big part of her research looks at presence and the psychology of flow.
