4-day-research with LALI AYGUADE at b12
where: Berlin, Germany
when: 12th – 15th july 2017 / 9:00am – 1:00pm
FROM GRAVITY TO LIGHTNESS
this course includes a technical part and another of creative and composition work. the first part is based on the way we use the ground when we dance, giving great importance to our base, feet, as a support of our movement. the power is in the feet and legs and let the rest of the body be free to express. the movement work in class is faster without forgetting the details.
the second part is about control and knowing how to leave the control. be aware of the whole body. these are principles which come through improvisation and imagination. we will also give much importance to the continuity of the movement and note that the energy of our body never stops, even when there isn’t movement. i like to think that if you draw a straight line, the circle does not disappear.
