This workshop is built on the experience, practices, researches and discoveries that happened to us in the process and as a result of co-existence in dancing with each other…
What makes our dance visible? How something inside gives the birth to something outside and vice versa?
What the quality of the dance depends on?
- how much is the partner ready to offer, accept, change the position and the situation in the creation of the dance
- on feeling of the spatial and temporal states?
- on our own listening and the development of own movement?
These are only few questions…
We will find totally new answers, surprising discoveries, which are personal for everybody.
Class will include work with improvisational structures that will allow you to get and secure in the dance the feeling of the game with horizontal and vertical levels of intimacy with a partner and space, as well as free transfer of the internal state into the external and vice versa.
We are observers and being observed, will learn to offer, to accept or change the proposal to partner.
While being in the improvisation field, there are may appear spontaneously or deliberately chosen such forms of interaction with the space, as a solo, duet, trio … group .
During our investigation we will focus on such components of personal and general movement like :
By learning more about ourselves, about our movement , we can deepen our curiosity in cooperation with others and make it interesting to create an “observation” space , involving us in a state of attention and empathy.
