We are interested in a highly physical movement vocabulary which challenges our body in multiple
ways. We aim for a full body awareness and the comfort to move through all levels, axes and

partnering and set movement phrases.
This access of the body is used as a base for researching performative qualities. We are curious
about how we can view each material of movement in a way that it can become malleable and
expressive. We are Interested in each person’s creativity, in how they can use their body to express
things on stage. To that goal we will be using a lot of theatrical exercises, instant composition and
exercises of observation and feed backing. We will create an open stage environment,
complimenting and inspiring each other within the group, with the ultimate goal of growing as a
