Description: In this series of dance improvisation classes, we play with the relation between movement, time, musicality and imagination.
The class starts with warm-up exercises that sharpen our awareness, activate, and strengthen our bodies - short exercises that invite us to connect with our breath, our joints, our axis and to gravity. By approaching the dancing body as an archive, we unfold our movement habits using them as a compass for navigating into unknown territories. We play with different approaches of sensing time while dancing. We delve into the musicality of our body and use our breath, speech, inner talk as means for altering our rhythmicity and surprising ourselves. We give space for stillness and listening, which in turn give birth to our movements and decision making at the time of performing.
In the last part of each class, we compose a score-based structure for our dances and use it as a base to move, stop, listen, go beyond, mess it up and/or go back to it. We play, we relate, we dont know, we dance.
