The falling and rolling workshop is based on physical and powerful floor work in which many movement patterns involving breathing, speed and release of energy through the body are put to use. By entering and leaving the ground, we will be activating our relationship between our point of centre and our limbs, and how this combination works in relation to the floor. We will focus on our bone structure and study the use of spirals in order to understand and improve our efficiency, and to heighten our perception and physical awareness. We will study various ways to fall and roll in multiple directions, to drop and lift in a smooth and yet efficient way, by activating spirals from a low and strong physical centre. By exploring various movement possibilities, we will create sequences which exist on many physical levels and plains. We will also investigate the anatomy of the locomotor system, in order to re-allocate our energy and conserve it in a way that enables us to work more efficiently. We will search the body for weight, flexibility and strength through the exploration of multiple energy levels to understand the breadth of our limitations.

GN|MC Guy Nader | Maria Campos is an independent ensemble based in Barcelona, Spain. The Lebanese and Spanish artists have been collaborating together since 2006, their works have been shown in various festivals and venues around the world. GN|MC have been invited as guest choreographers to create for different companies, such as EnKnapGroup in Slovenia, Eva Duda Dance Company/Movein Mission in Hungary, Tanzmainz company in Germany and XieXin Dance Theatre in Shanghai, China. GN|MC has been awarded the German theatre prize DER FAUST in 2017 for their work FALL SEVEN TIMES, created with Tanzmainz, Staatstheater Mainz in Germany and GN|MC received Prize City of Barcelona in 2019. GN|MC Guy Nader | Maria Campos have been developing their own artistic language through movement and constantly redefining themselves while searching for a common ground in their individual approach to dance. Both look for a high demanding physicality aiming to push the body to its limits. Seeking for strength and delicacy in movement, they allow a whole spectrum of imagery to rise, discovering and providing an endless body landscape. Together they have found a common interest in partnering work, where they experiment new ways of approaching the relation between two or more bodies, developing strategies and tasks, in order to provide the body with a distinct image and perception.
