Ballet/ from a contemporary point of view
Place: EDEN, Breite Strasse 43, 13187 Berlin
The language of Ballet as a propitious field where to extreme tension between the biological aspect of our body and its mysterious potential.
In this seminar we will focus on the observation of the walk. The human walk as a study of movement that life developed to move us on this planet, with a body like ours. The study we will do, is not so much about thinking if our walk is functional, but about asking what forces operate there. Then we can review the ability to create new realities that the human being has, in link with what creates it (the evolutionary path that brought us here).
In order to participate in the present without injuries or impossibilities, we will need to allow, the study that life did in the development of the walk, to pulsate inside the invention, in the new skill for the body that Ballet implies. Every invention requires an adaptation of our current material reality, so that the past intersects with the present in harmony (in health). Allow that in each step, in each arrival to the now, past-present-future they intertwine and extend as a flow, rather than in separate stations.
We will make a deep reflection on the language of Ballet taking into account the contribution made by the study of biology, anatomy, movement, forces, nature, so that the invention is not only an impossible idea, but an impossible to be achieved.
