Dynamic phrasing

Dynamic Phrasing was initiated 15 years ago by Maciej Kuźmiński and is the choreographer's main tool for creation and communicating with his dancers. The method comprises of five complimentary Pillars: I – the Loop, II – movement research, III – phrases & repertoire, IV – floorwork, V – Task Basket re-composition. Dynamic Phrasing strengthens dancers' versatility, developing a broad dance language, based on various shades and rhythms, as well as introducing a powerful and flowing movement capacity. During the workshops at B12, Maciej Kuźmiński will focus on the first 3 Pillars of the method, starting each day with a session of DP I - The Loop, in order to create an energy flow through the body. You will then proceed to DP II – Movement Research, which is an improvisation-based laboratory for a wide variety of movement shapes, qualities and rhythms. Finally, DP III – Phrases and Repertoire will be introduced to guide the participants into the flowing and powerful dance language. The workshop will be an all-round experience, leaving you with a rich toolbox to work with in the future, and a deeper understanding of movement origin. we will enter into a dialogue with our own body, by nourishing the diversity inherent in our nature and harnessing the power of gravity. this dialogue is enhanced by rigorous, multidimensional training and a deep passion for movement. it will be a journey that takes us to the limits of our body's capacity, to reveal the roots and core of our being.

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.
