safe space

I invite you to share this safe space for learning and creating together. To prepare the body, I will propose set exercises and key principals that I utilize in my creative process, such as presence and breathing. We will at times visit concepts from the RUBBERBAND Method to which I actively contributed. Through choreographic phrases, we will approach the floor with authority, sculpt the space, build structures and explore partnering opportunities. My work process is planned and structured while leaving room for instinct and listening in the present moment. I get excited with research and improvisation while remaining anchored in the body’s skills and achievements. Inhabited by an insatiable curiosity, I feed off of the energy of the room and investigate with passion and vitality. The body is our vessel to communicate truths and positive change, so let’s harbour the spirit of hope together.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2024. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.
