PASSING THROUGH (a 1 week post-intensive gathering)
by David Zambrano
About the workshop
This workshop will be more a gathering of 5 mornings where David Zambrano will guide and dance together with participants in Passing Through sessions. ONLY participants who have done an intensive of Flying Low & Passing Through before can join this week. David Zambrano will just have finished a 5 weeks intensive in Flying Low & Passing Through, so for him it will be as a continuation, going further into the passing through research.
This week offers an opportunity for those who have done Passing Through before to rejoin with others who had a similar experience and practice within another group constellation. For each participant it can be an update, refreshment, a coming together, a further development, a (re-)learning process.
Who can register:
1. Anyone who has done a 5 week Passing Through/Flying Low intensive with David Zambrano at Tictac Art Centre.
2. Anyone who took part in a 4 week Ex-In (which happened in Germany, Spain, Greece or Italy)
3. Anyone of the 50 days FL & PT in Costa Rica (2010)

In the making of movement compositions, David Zambrano focuses on creating and developing the dynamics for complex systems to present leadership in the form of a group web. In science, cells do not need a protein leader to create life. Neither does the brain need one protein leader to create a thought. With this in mind, Zambrano thinks that movement needs no leader in creation.
The “passing through” takes students through various exercises to manifest that same philosophy. The group will create dynamics that will be flexible, complex, getting the group to fit tight together, yet always keeping doors open for the unexpected. The group moves constantly, transforming the environment of the dance. After taking part in the “passing through” the student will learn to instantly connect with their environment and become more spontaneous in the making of choices as an improviser, choreographer or dancing in someone else’s work.
