Movement Research – dance practice by SORTA Project

About Movement Research
During the practice of movement research we’ll use several tasks and structures with the aim of gathering our dance into a social and performing aspect. Improvisation will be the base of our practice. From solo’s to group community-exercises we will find strategies to encourage our movement qualities and movement situations. We will develop strength, coordination and perception. The negotiation between the technical and emotional body -playfulness- will be the main objective inside movement research class. This practice may lead us to a composition/choreographic research, but also to get to know the others through dancing.
This practice is open to everybody, professional and amateurs.
