Work of previous work together:
We start the class by opening our channels of awareness. The use of playfullness and change of rhythm allows us to connect to our natural flow of breath. With the help of exercises in different constellations – in a group, with a partner and alone – we listen to our weight to be able to direct it through space. We get ready to jump, cross, push, avoid, embrace each other. Focusing on the collective mind and body inside the class we enhance the group power giving an energetic push to the individual source of creativity. Physical tasks, created to support movement exploration are carried out, especially in partnering contexts. These tasks enhance the body’s ability to coordinate whilst discovering new qualities and mechanisms. We conclude every class working on choreographic material.
