About the work
I’m intrigued by the poetry that movement generates. We’ll explore some tools and strategies to allow our body to be moved by emotions, space, stories.
We will observe the way we affect, or interfere with our ability to move, further scrutinising the way we hide behind our habits.
Tuning our self-perception through the Alexander Technique, we can deeply connect to the natural energy that spirals through our body. In this state of refined awareness, we approach movement through dance.
We’ll take risks, working hard to do less, doing less in order to have more clarity, having fun, astounding ourselves.
Celebrating the uncertainty, we’ll commit with rules and then let them drop until the body is no longer the subject, but the instrument that makes the invisible, visible.
The invitation is to experience ourselves as an infinite source of gentle strength and powerful softness, redefining and enjoying how we relate to our fantasy, to the music, to each other in the space.
Valentina Bordenave is a freelance dancer, choreographer and since 1998, certified Alexander Technique teacher based in Berlin.
In her more than 20 years experience as a movement teacher, Valentina has been developing her own research with strong focus on the body support system, spatial / energetic awareness, intense physicality and utmost sensitivity.
She directs the movement department at LISPA / ARTHAUS Berlin International School of Performing Arts and is teaching regularly with the theater company FAMILIE FLÖZ. Others pedagogical experiences include the Acting Departements at Universität der Künste (UDK) and at Ernst Busch University in Berlin.
