‘becoming what one is” of Nietzsche
The workshop proposes an exploration of sensory perception and movement pattern observation. Based on the idea of “free spirit” of Nietzsche, we will play with individuality toward the multiplicity, we will give attention to the physical and emotional that create the unique body language and identity.
The 3 days will be comprised of warm-up exercises followed with improvisation score, choreographic composition practice, contact improvisation and group ensemble work.
The participants will practice physical sensations and examine the relationships between thought, movement and presence in solo and within a group.
This workshop is inspired by the material of the current piece: OnlyHuman
