PARTNERING | CREATION TOOLS
This workshop is based on partnering and contact work, and on the vocabulary of the work used in GN|MC creations' processes and researches. We propose tasks and points of departure to start opening up a world of imagination where body is treated from very different points of view. We search for mechanics and observe movement, in order to multiply paths and approaches to the understanding of movement and body. We are interested in looking into the possibilities that the body offers and how we can make it rise to those possibilities. We will study different ways to carry the partner (portés), give weight, find common axis, counterweight, balance, move together in space using each other, etc. We will work on developing the ability of trusting each other, as well as taking risks. We will learn movement sequences in pairs of earlier works (repertoire), as well as create and compose sequences based on partner work through concrete physical tasks.
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.
