COLLISION AND FLOW
the first part of the workshop will be dedicated to a mixture of floorwork, acrobatic moves with a contemporary flow, tango and kung fu. each exercise will invite the participants to widen their perception, conscience and coordination while playing with time, space, speed and levels.
the second part of the workshop will approach the work of partnering gradually from a simple touch, to the carrying and then the passing through/projection.
in both parts, after the technical exploration the participants will learn various parts of the repertory of the choreographer sidi larbi cherkaoui, one of the most influential choreographers of our time. time will be taken for re-creating material and exchanging the outcome within the group. to finish up each workshop day we will use the basics of acroyoga.
