Atelier honours the workshop as a place of experimentation and craft creation. For me, the dance studio is like a workshop where we learn, practice and improve our technique / crafts(wo)manship, and find a creative identity. In my methodology, I propose a work based on the compositional factors of dance, according to the dancer, choreographer and pedagogue Jean Cébron (1927-2019): energy, form, space, and rhythm. The Jooss-Leeder method inspires much of my class. Respecting the different needs and circumstances of the group, I focus on breathing, repetition, and opposing directional forces. At the end of the training, we conclude with a sequence containing the information studied during the session. Afterwards, composition and improvisation exercises open a dialogue with each performer. I seek to connect them with their unique personal expression and their creative potential, beyond their physical aptitudes. With these premises, there will be work through play and pleasure on the detailed study of movement, gesture, writing, improvisation, and body narrative. Dancers will connect with authenticity, but also confront their self-demands and develop a greater awareness of their limits, in order to overcome them. Thus, through guidelines and keywords, the group will explore a resilient, open and autonomous way of thinking about creativity. it is An invitation to self-reliance, but also to a collective process of discovery, questioning and expansion.

Born in Barcelona, Pau began his career at the age of 11 with latin american, standard, jazz, modern dance, and classical ballet. He completed his studies at the Conservatorio Profesional de Danza Mariemma in Madrid, and later at the Folkwang Hochschule der Künste in Essen, before joining the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal - Pina Bausch in 2005, until 2020 as a permanent member, and later as a guest until 2022. It was also in 2020 that he began his artistic collaboration with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, which continues to this day. Pau has also collaborated with other choreographers such as Theo Clinkard, Alan Lucien Øyen, Antonio Ruz, Stefan Jovanović, and Jorge Puerta Armenta. From 2013, he began his independent choreographic creations, generally developed through interdisciplinary collective work and creative workshops. Among his most significant shows are Lettre d'amour (2020), co-produced by the GREC Festival in Barcelona; and Un cadavre exquis II (2022), premiered at the Teatro Español, with José Troncoso. His current motivation is to continue focusing on the creation and pedagogy of dance. The search for movement and his interest in the poetics of contemporary dance-theatre are represented in his projects. With a commitment to sharing previously acquired experience with the next generation of artists, Pau encourages self-discovery, simultaneously combining heritage and tradition with the passage of time and the transitory nature of the dance of the future.
