Akira Yoshida

former dancer with lali ayguadé co / roberto oliván performing arts


up, but down, but fast, but slow, but wild, but sensitive

this workshop focuses on the creativity that arouses from elements that are constantly working with ourselves: gravity, levity, body tension/relaxation, distribution and transfer of weight. There is a big focus on floorwork, through which we will try to understand how to put the principles that we understand when we are standing, but on the floor, upside down, or in acrobatic material. By focusing on the parts of the body that are working with the floor, we will realize of the parts that are free, in order to have a fully articulate and communicative body, and to work with the whole body efficiently to gain momentum, lightness, changes of level, control of the hip and details. Once we discover the body, we will work on characterizing our movements in order to add performative layers, in order to create a complete atmosphere or research. All this will be combine with some material and phrases, in order to work the principles of the workshop in other ways.

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!
