This workshop requires participation all five days.
The Flow Acrobatics workshop deals with the thematics of body awareness and full body coordination. The participants will get to know the concept in a playful way by integrating new movement patterns which are based on fluidity, resilience and lightness and have their origin in capoeira and contemporary dance.
Taking inspiration from martial arts and yoga, the warm up has the purpose to tune the dancers into a clear and subtle state of body and mind before their practice and execution. Challenging postures alongside movement flow with circular motions and spirals will be introduced in order to provide better awareness of the body, especially for wrists and legs.
The warm up is followed by a series of movement patterns used as a tool to explore the mechanics of the spine. Introducing dynamics of balancing, stabilizing, falling, rolling, flipping and melting down in order to maintain flow without unnecessary tension. The patterns will increase in complexity and then be linked into longer sequences with acrobatic elements.
The main part of the seminar consists of high energy movement phrases based on Kenan’s choreographic work which is influenced by various backgrounds such as Capoeira, Judo, Release-Technic and Breakdance. Improvisation tasks will be present during the whole workshop in order to explore the movement material from another viewpoint.
