The workshop is designed to be a playful physical journey but focused on mental challenges and the explicit goals of artistic expression and creativity. We will try to change the prism by searching for different ways of looking at movement and its qualities. An invitation to explore a space that is neither too new nor too familiar, but something in between; like walking with a compass but without a map.
Guided improvisations and specific technical exercises will be the starting point of the work, mainly in pairs and groups. We will play with their vocabulary within defined but changing contexts to experiment and observe specific bodily mechanisms and mental processes that happen while we dance. Opening the doors of perception, we will search for those creative impulses that, once released, offer opportunities for new achievements —both technically and performatively.Laura Arís
