Zero Space is a method developed around combining different ideas and techniques to harness the body's energy and use it to its full potential.

The method revolves around the idea connected to both floor work and partnering - Generating energy by dropping your weight. The main objective of the method is to multiply the body's energy with this principle and use that energy to amplify slides, jumps, tricks, etc., and at the same time to be able to land as smoothly as possible no matter the situation.

To execute these things Zero Space method also includes a collection of exercises based on a range of training methods and techniques. Such as animal-based movement training, capoeira, yoga, kung-fu, breakdance, judo, and more. To increase the overall body strength, build stamina, diversify movement articulations, expand the mind-muscle connectivity, and prevent injuries.
An important part of Beno's teaching is the transposition of the ideas that we as dancers apply while being vertical and use them also when we go into the floor.
How to maintain the axis? How to counter direct energy? An how to train our body, to be able to receive the floor as well as the soles of our feet.
The workshop is a combination of movement exploration, physical training, studying principles and moves, improvisation, and learning dance phrases.
Beno Novak's work is a constant exploration of personal experiences expressed through a strong physicality, mixed with sensitivity, fragility, power, and exhaustion.
Beno graduated from the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in 2016 and was later invited to upgrade his knowledge at the Tisch Dance Department (New York University) and at The Place Dance Academy (London).
He has danced for many different companies and with many renowned artists. In London, he has danced for the Gary Clarke Company, Jason Mabana Dance, and James Wilton Dance Company.
He has danced for choreographers like Matej Kejžar, Alix Eynaudi, Paul Blackman & Christine Gouzelis, Ricardo Ambrozio, Zsuzsa Rozsavolgyi, Etienne Guilloteau, and others.
Much of his work is done in collaboration with other artists such as the duet "400 Rabbits" with Marina Abib, the solo "Owe" by Junior Mufutau Jussuf, "::Narava::Dialog::" with Dragana Alfirovič, "Body Concert" with Ana Romih, and others.
