What we do during 3 hours :
- Gentle warm-up : sensation-based activities and efficient ways of moving without waste effort.
Feeling of gravity, connection with core, skin, spine and limbs, bones and joints.
- Basic partnering exercises : moving and being moved, leading-following exercises, rolling point of contact, soft-focus vision.
- Improvisations : moving in connection with oneself and others (duet, trio...), enjoying building a common movement language.
- From improvisation to composition. Improvisation scores, composition of solos, duets... and collective scenes.
Improvisation helps us connect with ourselves through movement, improves our reflexes, grounds us in the present moment, invites us to deal with the unexpected or unknown.
The work is inspired by Contact Improvisation, Danceability, Authentic Movement, 5 Rhythms, Dance as Ritual/Dance as performance and Instant Composition.
