What are contemporary acrobatics to me? Risk taking, breaking the form, implementing virtuosity in flow, exploring the maximum but using the minimum necessary.
In this workshop we will learn and practice key elements in my research and way of moving today: Moving efficiently on the floor, differentiating between movement that is controlled and uncontrolled and isolating different parts of our body in order to generate movement.
Jump, slide, spiral, gather, release will all become part of our common vocabulary. We will find ways to approach difficult movement with ease, with proper tools to make our energy soft and efficient.
The seminar will go through physical preparation to acrobatic work, introduction of advanced maneuvers and elements of floor acrobatics, balance, strength, flexibility, mobility, conditioning, implementing acrobatics in movement and creating sequences, learning movement phrases, and partnering work. Through practicing choreographed material and improvising we will explore different textures, enrich the physicality of our body, and deepen our understanding of different dynamics and musicality.
