DOWN BY SPIRAL
“During this workshop, I would like to share my daily research inspired by different approaches of physicality. I like the idea of a full body warm-up while dancing, through repetition of different sequences that range from simple to more complex. In this class we will walk, run, spin, slide, jump and roll through the entire space, building the skills and knowledge to play with our whole body, challenging ourselves by finding individual solutions through doing. Improvisation and open dancing will be used as a tool during the class, moving in a playful environment, developing physical perception and alertness among the group. The material used during this class, it is a combination of different techniques from my own practice feuled by a variety of dance forms.”
