PLAY FULL BODY
The workshop is designed to be a playful physical journey but focused on awareness and the explicit goals of artistic expression and creativity by looking at different ways of looking at movement and its qualities. It’s an invitation to explore a space that is neither too new nor too familiar but something in between.
Guided improvisations and specific technical exercises will be the work’s starting point, mainly in pairs and groups. During the workshop, we will often switch roles from the performer to the observer so that different questions and insights may arise. Participants will play with their own vocabulary within defined but changing contexts to experiment and observe specific bodily mechanisms and mental processes while dancing. Opening the doors of perception, we will search for those creative impulses that, once released, offer opportunities for new technical and performative achievements.
“Through my years of teaching, I have learned to seek a balance between technical goals and the individual’s abilities to make their own choices, engage in deep reflection, explore new horizons, cultivate their personas, and immerse themselves in imaginative worlds. The act of teaching and my professional artistic practice have long been interconnected, fostering an ongoing relationship and co-evolution.”
