moving air

moving air is a dance workshop aimed at performing artists seeking to expand the limits of the dance; from the wild to the stillness and from the stillness to the wild. all exercises in the class work the pure physicality of the body into the wind, with unpredictable rhythms, and the purpose of the workshop is to focus on the infinity of possibilities that exist in each dancer to transform the body into wind. to flow swiftly and powerful into the space! the class works many types of energies through specific material of phrases and improvisations that will challenge the dancer to relate the movement with the environment, finding endless possibilities in all physical levels, involving all kinds of physical limits to find harmony and balance between the dance and everything that inhabits us. this dance workshop will guide us to emerge into the space free and dynamic, to find yourself natural and intuitive.

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!

inside the body

founded in Montreal, Canada, in 2006, under the direction of Aladino R.

Since the beginning until now, the company is under the direction of Aladino R. Blanca, born in Mexico, who is regarded as one of the young upcoming artistic directors, characterised by their courage and their artistic explosion on stage without fearing being criticised by the audience. Every creation includes interpreters with high levels of physical theatre skills, characterised by their animalistic and honest presence on stage. IT’s creations generate radical atmospheres and situations that go beyond the common sense, by reflecting society on different levels, moving from the brutality to tenderness.
