INAKI AZPILLAGA / TURBADOR / Workshop-creation

17 February, 2016 garage29 OFFESTIVAL, WORKSHOP

2-13.05.16 / OFF @ Garage29

The workshop is addressed to advanced and professional dancers and actors with movement training background. 

Movement is the main subject of the workshop. Participants will explore movement originated from necessity, urgency, limitation, emotional reason. Partnering and floor work with high doses of energy and dynamic changes will centre the attention in the class. We will work on two separate areas: One around pure abstract movement, related to musicality and space composition. The second one on partnering, where the bodies intrude each other. In a later stage, we will research the ways to fuse our discoveries towards performance.

The workshop will end with a public presentation on May the 13th at 8pm, in the frame of OFFestival 2016.
