If we visualise the creation of a dance piece as a puzzle – and if as a dancer you would like to be an active piece on the board – you need to be a thinking body that changes, transforms, translates the basic material and is able to surprise herself or himself.
During this week of work, we will deal with Space and Time alterations.
The first few days we will learn a basic phrase, which will be the vocabulary used to build all the changes.
Real time composition throughout improvisational sessions will be proposed to open up ideas of interaction. Thus, we will be able to transform the fixed dance material in time and space with different tools provided in form of games.
The last day of work we will summon all the material created and try to make the skeleton of a dance piece to give everyone the chance of performing it to each other and having the sense of continuity this work should have.
The final goal of the workshop is to share the base of my own experience as a performer and give different guidelines and suggestions to the participants of when and how to use these principles of transformation and composition.Marta Coronado
