05.–09.07.21, 18:00–20:00

Dancer/ Mover/ Performer

Fee: 85€ / 70€ Early Bird (until June 21st)


The interest of this class is to find new perspectives in how we think the body and the movement. 

The first part of the class is a guided improvisational warm-up, where we tune the body by integrating breath, gravity, textures, supports, speed changes and coordination in order to create a dialogue between action and the awareness of the spontaneous movement.

In the second part we will embodied, explore and develop different movement-tasks or ideas articulating them in time and space challenging the way we phrase movements as stimulating our choices and creativity.

The third part focuses on the practice of composition in a group form, using all the previously worked elements in a playful and precise way.

Being directors and performers at the meantime.
