force separation

this sharing room is completely my own personal research based on preparation for floor work / acrobats. i am interested in finding ways to connect movements while releasing unnecessary force. this leads to the importance of the space in between, connecting to the japanese concept of martial arts (gap, space, pause). movements are connected by efficient suspensions, moments in which force is released and redirected into both internal and external space; listening to the physical need of eliminating unnecessary force generates a more conscious and analytical approach to momentum. together, we will realise how the spreading out of separate forces generates acrobatics and creates suspension from effortless flow of dynamics and melodic rhythm of expansion and contraction, understanding that multi-centrality is supporting technique and facilitating floor work.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!
