Toolbox for moving contact situations
Toolbox for moving contact situations; it is a workshop where we will explore those mechanical and poetic tools that can help us organize the movement, focus our attention, help us to face momentum and interaction in dance with our partnered.
Providing both fluidity, movement economy and effort, as well as inspiration for practice.
In this workshop we will also explore some guidelines from the imaginary or the poetic, thus confronting the physical tools such as the eyes, breathing, the skin, joint training for movements off the axis or the different muscle tonicities.
