TOOLS FOR A THINKING BODY
& COMPOSITION WORKSHOP

TOOLS FOR A THINKING BODY & COMPOSITION WORKSHOP
“The workshop will start with a class based on the main premises of Release Technique. We will approach the body as an open system, a physical machine that endures the laws of motion. Self-perception of movement is the main goal in changing previous physical habits, in order to use new perimeters that will help us renounce extra muscular force.
In the second part of the workshop, we will deal with the active integration of mind and body and the investigation of your own thought process to open new ways of communication with other bodies in space. Real time composition throughout improvisation will be proposed to open up ideas of interaction, as well as the transformation of fixed dance material in time and space with different tools provided in form of games.
The final goal of the workshop is to share the base of my own experience as a dancer and give different guides and suggestions to the participants of when and how to use the principles of transformation for composition.”
