Sole Medina (CL) – Classes

– E.C.H.O.E.S – 

An invitation to immerse ourselves in that [space-time] of moving together.

Starting from the idea of ​​transferring weight we will provoke mobilities that will allow us to deal with the irremediable loss of a body and its fall. We will approach certain physical phenomena to think about and expand the question of touch, contact and the reverberations that affect the skin in those encounters and the imaginaries that provoke us to move them. From spherical notions we will activate the back as a joyful fall and its curved power in movement, navigating around the systems that regulate our balance, with the desire to stimulate the sensory skills that allow us to improvise… working in duets – trios and  collective to shake unexpected, playful and agile dances. Feel the collision; between echo, coincidence and impact. The suspension and flight from the casual conjunction of time, the uncertain and the present as the reality of what happens.

-Perceive-move-displace will be actions to organize the materials that emerge from the bodies, amplifying the systems of sensation and action, inertia and flow, repetition and difference, imitation and creation, automatism and variation.

We will think of the body with that mutant capacity, to stimulate the images that reveal themselves, its morphology, its wild imagination in order to make creative play possible and awaken the living state of composing-moving-risking together with others.
