Hereby I would like to provide you with short description of my contemporary improvisation workshop. It consists of 3 different parts – warm up, structured improvisation, partnering work.
During warm up I`m focusing on preparing the body and mind of dancers for furthermore deeper exploration, which allows them to move freely while having some clear images about tools and principles that can be used. Usually we spend from 15 to 20 minutes for practicing simple movement patterns and their complex variations such as spirals, hand stands, floor work and jumps.
The main core of the workshop is basing on structured improvisation. Within specific tasks, principles and images we are throwing ourselves in an exploration world with certain level of awareness about how our body can function and in which specific direction we would like to go. In this part of the workshop we are having small sessions when you can deepen into investigation process with precise leading of teacher through this journey. Practically wise it includes aspects of efficient work with and in space, question of trajectories, path and implementation of fixed structures. As well we are dedicating time to awakening and bringing awareness to all body parts and exploration process how they lead/follow/affect our movement practice in order to make us more diverse and sophisticated in a process of creating material. Last but not least includes work with images and quality, when we trying to achieve specific state of being through work of our body and imagination that could affect our patterns, break it and lead us to new discoveries and perception how we can approach certain things.
Third part of the workshop is basically continuation of previously described, however it allow us to use partner in order to strengthen already discovered feelings, qualities and textures. It gives us additional dimension, when we are able to find a way for efficient collaboration between each other or within the group. As well it helps us to feel more clear impact of other person on this practice and register how quality of our movement can adapt due to presence of other person in it.
my professional experience during past five years includes projects in Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, Russia and Ukraine in genres of contemporary dance, physical theater, Dutch mime and site specific performances. I was collaborating with choreographers and former dancers from such company as Batsheva dance company (Guy Shomroni and Yaniv Abraham), Ultima vez (Sebastian Mente Maligna and Maria Kolegova) , Goteborg opera danskompani (Jim de Block), Moto perpetuo and Xocolat, Theater Bremen, Mime wave Ukraine among the others.
Most significant input on my technique and style was made by teachers and former dancers from NDT and Peeping Tom.
