ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: https://vimeo.com/103231069
ANIMAL INSTINCT is an ongoing movement research. The hardcore of this practice is to gain freedom in motion. By moving away from any ideology, style or form, we can reexamine our physical abilities with fresh eyes. The work refers to information from various movement disciplines (contact improvisation, martial arts, somatic practices & contemporary dance) and offers a wide spectrum of tools to study our body, to understand movement and communicate physically.
MAIN STUDY TOPICS:
- Body preparation (warm-up/cool-down)
- Physical Adaptation
- Flexibility and movement fluidity
- Undulation and spiral patterns
- Muscle tonus
- Hands as feet and feet as hands
- Reflexive awareness
- Structural limitations & manipulation
- Freedom in expression
The work passes through various constellations (solo, duet or group work), studying the never ending possibilities that occur in dynamic improvisations.
The workshop is open for beginners and advanced movers.
Language is English
Translation into German is possible
