About Going Deeper
Going Deeper into movement quality and performance presence. An extension of the contemporary training into repertoire and creative-process material, influenced by the companies and productions from Paul’s career so far. Participants explore the quintessential “style” of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, dive into tasks and techniques from DV8 Physical Theatre, Tanja Liedtke and learn repertoire from his collaborations Cella, Anatomy of an Afternoon, and The Oracle. Unleashing a mature and potent performer through emotive and precise physical and verbal exercises.
