Alexandros el greco


Array ( [0] => 64 [1] => 86 [2] => 50 [3] => 66 )

organic acrobatix

This workshop intends to construct a self-coherent structure of practicing dance, while addressing elements in all the stages of its complexity. An equal amount of attention is given to body conditioning, dance technique, acrobatic elements, the use of space and time, the relation between the performers and performativity. Through all of the stages of the work, engagement and awareness are challenged by compelling the practitioners to constantly seek for connections between new and old information. The process of the class oscillates between two modes; One is to challenge ourselves in order to broaden the limits of our current potential, and the other is to allow for the information to settle, becoming an organic part of our craft. A coherent group dynamic is constructed throughout the practice, owing to, but also resulting in the work being based on the exchange of information, support, ideas and input. All the while, enjoyment of the process of working with our bodies and with people is continually encouraged.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2023. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.

Alexandros el greco, born in 1987, has a Degree in Dance from the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance as well as a BSc in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Following a non-conventional path, he stepped into the world of performing arts by creating his first pieces with collectives, such as Dance and the Mind, in Thessaloniki and later in Berlin. While studying in SEAD, he became a founding member of the La Otra Familia collective and performed All these places have their moments and Bardo Vals and Deriva. His most recent collaboration is with the group Dans Kapot, in which, along with the band Don Kapot, they create work for the stage and for street settings. Their upcoming project in 2023 is supported by Jazzlab, Belgium. His personal work includes the solos Each Precious Moment and the fall in between, as well as commissioned works for educational programs. He has been working with Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus since 2017 in the productions In Spite of Wishing and Wanting, Trap Town and Traces. Other collaborations include Alexander Vantournhout/Not Standing and Julyen Hamilton/Allen’s Line. Alexandros has also been developing his educational approach through his Organic Acrobatix workshops, which take place within various educational platforms.
