Improvisation in Dance
The Class is an invitation to re-explore our own individual abilities and our natural instincts, by challenge them and give them a proper space. We will examine the action of leaving old habits and meeting new insights, while using our imagination in a physical way and working as a laboratory; exploring ourselves as an individual and as a group member, testing the borders of the space as a partner and ourselves as a partner. We will sharp our senses in order to go out on a journey and clarify our creative voice and power, exploring different dynamics of the body, the relations between music and movement and to use our passion and joy as one of our creative engines.
We will play with different materials from several techniques, by transforming them to our own. We can analog it to new words that we just learned; we choose how to say them, in a very high tone, low, maybe we will sing them or maybe just hum them. The same thing with our body, we can choose how to translate the movement to our own body language.
