eastman/sidi larbi cherkaoui // former dancer with ultima vez/wim vandekeybus // artistic director of helka
when: 26th – 29th june 2017 / 9:00am – 1:00pm
where: Berlin, Germany
we’ll start with a class focusing on organic ways of moving, using and recycling energy with continuous flow, growing progressively from the floor, and approach concepts like risk, trust, instinct and speed. we’ll focus, amongst other things, on kinetic force and anatomy, departing from and back to our own center with an openness towards the inside (physical consciousness) and outside (all around us), merging what we control and what we allow to happen/observe.
then we’ll explore a set of physical, theatrical and imagery propositions. we’ll delve into different qualities, develop and transform taught repertory material and original ideas, but also explore our own personal movement language, using intuition and personal background, pushing boundaries. in a playful environment, i’m interested in exploring physical and mental limits, what we experience and how we can push further…
