We will start by awakening the body with breathing exercises working from the joints towards the movement, with a scale of 0 to 10, to be able to flow and unify the breath with the movement in a natural way.
We will continue investigating and looking for different ways of using the floor, working on different qualities of movement, dynamics, space … to know the limits of the body and to be able to express actions reaching different states.
In a second part, we will work mainly on contact and improvisation with a defined concept to be able to investigate and develop other interpretive facets such as voice, theatricality, body sounds and different states.
All this process will serve to create a space of sensations, with connection as the central main objective of the work.
