Inspired by definitions of biomes, we start with the ground by engaging sensual experiences with time perception, physicality of plants-and-animals with architectural structures. Through these improvisations we experience different body states, as our ways of perceiving and moving from the ground evolve into floating. We observe how compressed air, distance and human relations store energies by bridging neuro-cognitive cranialsacral work with capoeira angola. Releasing more flexibility and space in our minds and bodies. Once we’ve achieved an increased sense of availability, we flow into a journey of contact improvisation work with periods of weightlessness, blindness and shape shifting. Upon generating these states, we add directions of higher intricacy inspired by the Jooss-Leeder method such as science of qualities and science of spaces.
1. What makes this a professional level class?
The combination of perception and cognitive skills, spatial awareness, sensitivity to touch, contact and the use of weight.
2. Is this an improvisation class, a class where we learn phrases/choreography, or both?
