FORSYTHE IMPROVISATION WORKSHOP
The 'Forsythe Improvisation Technologies' are a way of working with movement that William Forsythe and the Ballet Frankfurt used to develop their work. It uses Improvisational Modalities as tools to generate a higher quality of dance.
This one week workshop will give you knowledge on how to use these ideas and improvise clear and articulate movement. It will also help you to make better use of your already existing dance knowledge.
The workshop will lead to a better sense of your moving body.
You will learn how to use velocity, how to use your body's weight and it's impulses for your own benefit. How to go off and recapture balance. How to allow for happenstances and use their effect to create a more interesting improvisation. You will bring yourself to new discoveries in your physicality and reach a greater clarity and grace while dancing.
At the beginning we will learn Improvisational Modalities such as Bridging, Inversions, Transparencies, Inclinations, Dropping points, U-ing, CZ's, Brushing, Isometries, Point-Point-Line, Cross-Hemispheric, Spherical exercises, etc.
These ideas will generate complex movements and better your sense of coordination. They will free you from repeating habitual movement patterns and will allow for greater freedom in your improvisation.
We will also learn how to construct with these Modalities and how to create a new movement vocabulary.
The resulting knowledge will be useful for years to come, in your dance or choreographic practice or simply to raise your body awareness.
The workshop will take place from
February 14-19.th at
