Adonis Vais


The whole class is based and structured on and around the perception of human presence and intention. The class starts with a soft and gradual warm up through guided improvisation. When the body arrives to a certain awareness, structured exercises in the form of small understandable phrases, stimulate coordination, rhythmicity, interaction and the ability to produce movement in a wider range of qualities and control. Arriving to a common field with the group, we conclude putting the tools we used and discovered into a longer dance phrase that encourages individuality as a fundamental of coexistence in space.
