the importance of doing

The class will be dedicated to technical and physical training; a mix of Flying Low (DZ) and other floor work. I will also propose choreographic material with a focus on increasing speed and precision. I want to explore listening through the physical work, listening to the group and to oneself within a group, and how energy can be re-cycled and shared. Run with your heart rather than with your feet (they will follow). We will also work through improvisation and composition; moving together, creating a space where we practice, explore, perform and fail without judging ourselves or others. I would like to create an environment in which we can be inspired and inspire each other, a place to see each other and to let ourselves be seen. In terms of compositional work I would like to share methods of working used and developed within the productions Birds (come back to bones) and New Sites. The methods aim to remove the need for inspiration in order to be able to work, to give you tools to bypass your own sense of judgement in the creative process and to use what you know to shape what you don’t know yet. Prepare to sweat, to keep working when you’re tired (smile at the pain), and to enjoy!

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!
