Instinct & Innovation in Motion
10.30h - 17.00h
Instinct & innovation in motion...a search for awareness and connectivity in order to create what is unexpected, to challenge your physical intelligence, strength and movement capacity through persistence and patience, searching for the precision, intention and intensity of movement through a form of body consciousness, breaking limits in order to be innovative, impulsive and instinctive, to be alert & calm at the same time. Generating, dynamic, abandon and control by deviating fluidity and strength. Bringing awareness to the body, awareness of the body as an articulating vessel that enables the dancer to make more choices with what they have and empowering the dancer to be able to use more of themselves, to challenge the physical intelligence, strength and movement capacity.
During the class : Using detailed and subtle yet energetic and challenging movement phrases, both floor work and standing : I like to work on understanding the body as a whole and creating support and strength, through a form of body consciousness, understanding how to organise the body between support, weight, surface force, dynamic and release.moving on to connect lower and upper body by finding and using a powerful centre and creating more possible ways to re-organise and re-unify our body and movement. Becoming more aware of our form and body consciousness. Understanding your body as a whole to change movement habits, understanding a certain sequential order of the body and how to organise, in relation to the origin and destination of the movement, to discover the endlessness of possibilities and to be precise, calm & alert at the same time.
Therefor understanding that your body working on the floor and your body standing and moving in space are the same, organising your body as a surface, as a core and in its extremities.
This means researching how to instil surface force into your physical memory through floor work and then, how to utilise this instilled surface force to standing work.
I like to work on creating space. When I talk about space I'm initiating the understanding of the space created within the body, and the complex space within muscle and around the joints to create freedom of movement and choice. Therefor, to eventually create a space to project you body into elaborating with further elements such as; timing, focus and gravity.
Elaborating further during the workshop : The goal is to understand your body further than your comment ways.
I would like to propose a continued challenging of the body & person.
The generating power will be physical and emotional states. Combining choreographic material together with improvisation to develop new qualities to enrich the dancers vocabulary and to develop personal presence, questioning how to be affective and unpredictable with movement, by bringing a lot of awareness to the body, awareness of the body as an articulating vessel that enables the dancer/performer to make more choices with what they have. To understand your body further than your common ways and search deeper in order to create what is unexpected, to challenge your physical intelligence, strength and movement capacity through an elaborated persistence and patience, searching for the precision, intention and intensity of movement through a form of body consciousness = breaking limits of observation, ingestion & analysis of moment as well as execution in order to be innovative, impulsive and instinctive persistence and patience is precious the possibilities are endless
