Instinct & Innovation in Motion
10.00h - 17.00h
Motivation as an artist and sharer of experience and ongoing investigative knowledge…
My never ending hunger as a professional dancer & performer to constantly learn and share with others is my motivation. The desire that carries my body and the need of ongoing challenge, con-frontation and the search for intelligent thinking to nourish every layer of my emotional and physical body is my motivation.
My aim of endeavour is to keep moving, sharing and challenging myself, defining and redefining movement to find the beauty, liberation, despite the dangers and the fear… the exposing of bare energy is my motivation and questioning the internal limit of thinking as inspired by the purity and complexity of the body and the life it lives.
CLASS & WORKSHOP: Instinct & innovation in motion...a search for awareness and connec-tivity 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 innova-tive, 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 bo-dy 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 intelligen-ce, strength and movement capacity….training the brain and body together.
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 con-sciousness. Understanding your body as a whole to change movement habits, understanding a cer-tain 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 it’s 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 spa-ce 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.
