The class will take a practitioner trajectory towards a technical dance practice. It’s become a goal of his not to work with participants through documented contemporary movement techniques. Instead to try and encourage improvisation through and by finding your own niche of moving.
With warmups and tasks which consist of using words to describe what is being targeted. An example would be liquid movement, rotating wrists, elbows, and shoulders. ‘What happens with the rest of the body that follow these isolations, make up your own rhythm and dynamics in the improvised sequence.
In this class you will be encouraged to research your own ways of movement, within a co-authorship of structured scores. Personal movement research, away from documented techniques where unison work is part of the practice. Each day we will ‘perform’ structures and tasks and take note on our own development.
Please bring comfortable clothes for virtuosic dance, notebook, and optionally: a favorite dance track.
