The workshop Expressionist is intended for dancers who are in love with movement and who want to grow in endurance, expression and focus. The workshop begins with the articulation and division of the body into micro parts, which opens up space for the restoration and reprogramming of the body system. We are building our bodies from scratch. A new order of thought and a new articulation of movement offers a wide variety of movements and a restored body. The body is now ready to learn and explore a series of choreographed phrases based on this practice. Voice as an additional incentive is welcome. When learning given sequences, Lucija avoids copying the form and tries to focus on experiencing the movements in the moment and from within. It is a space in which mental and physical boundaries are pushed and playing with textures begins, which will be used for further challenges in the continuation of the workshop. The second part of the workshop takes the form of a game, emphasising and diminishing our emotional charge - both expressed through the body and through the voice (as sound and as text). Here, physical virtuosity is combined with a very detailed expression of mental states and emotions. It is a search for dialogue and harmony between all levels of existence.
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.
