Reloop & recycle

We will be researching movement techniques and tasks to strengthen the bond between the instinctual dancer and the analytical dancer. We will create clear choices, rules, games, and obstacles, in order to challenge the mind to accept and build movement vocabulary. We will be discovering ways to continuously flow, generate and regenerate possibilities in the body, as well as taking full advantage of the natural intelligence we have in our own individual bodies. The workshop will allow us to scan, develop and acknowledge the freedom and the limits within the body and to enjoy all that is possible, whilst developing your palette and finesse as an intelligent, virtuosic mover.

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!
