Über die Veranstaltung

Though Movement  (individual movement)

In the beginning of the class we involved joint movement and activation of the muscle tonus (through isometric positions or slow movements) awakening the proprioception and making an auto analysis of the body

After we will work on set movement phrases, using the spiral as a basic principal of organic movement; to achieve comprehension of the physical movement on various levels (especially on the floor) and the spacial connections, as well as the motor of the movement and nuances or textures of movement (speed and quality).

The movement material can be described as raw, with with acrobatic elements, challenging speed, coordination and spacial orientation.

We then dive into principles of locomotion in positions on hands and feet and rolling motion advancing in space, evolving little by little towards a more complex movement (transitions on hands, elbows, head and shoulders, generating suspensions of the body). By doing so we also train the muscular and cardio-respiratory endurance taking the participants out of their physical comfort zone which results in a gain in power and rendition on stage.

At the end we develop movement material that searches for a physical challenge through speed and agility, by consciously using the space, the muscle tonus, and bodily isolations or unusual coordinations to re-evaluate one´s physical material.
