Los Little Guys
Connecting Sources - This is a highly physical class with a focus on breaking movement habits, working with efficiency while encountering complexity, and the building of mobility, endurance, and strength. Led by Los Little Guys, Erik Elizondo and Dimitri Kalaitzidis, we will work with improvisation which has been developed specifically focusing on impulses to simultaneously coordinate and disassociate the body. We will work heavily with continuity and the layering of focus to deconstruct habits and engage with new movement patterns.
Los Little Guys is a contemporary dance collaboration created in 2017 by Erik Elizondo (Mexico) and Dimitri Kalaitzidis (USA). Since its foundation they have engaged in residencies, created and performed original work, and offered classes and workshops in Germany, the United States, Mexico, Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, India, Malaysia, and Austria.
Erik Elizondo graduated from SEAD Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance with a focus in contemporary dance performance. He has worked with artists such as Milla Koistinen, Aladino R. Blanca, Francisco Cordova, João Cidade, and Marion Sparber among others.
Dimitri Kalaitzidis graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with the same focus and later met Erik while studying with The Bodhi Project at SEAD. He has worked with artists such as Sita Ostheimer, Mala Kline, Rosalba Torres, Emmanuel Gat, and Barnaby Booth among others. The two are happy to have shared success working independently since completing their studies creating and sharing their own original work and movement research.
