During these three days workshop participants will be able to explore various contemporary dance techniques inspired by working principles and improvisational techniques developed by Crystal Pite, Ohad Naharin and Jiri Kylian and others.
Participants are encouraged to explore their own movement and experiment with their body language in different and unique ways. We will focus on working with leading points and tension levels and putting a strong emphasis on a pure physical approach to movement.
We will explore the creation of various dance phrases and see how we can "perform" them with different intentions and qualities.
Part of the work will be dedicated to playing a variety of physical and intellectual games that allows participants to approach movement from the perspective of their "inner child"."
