PETER JASKO / PLAY / Class
16-20.05.16 / OFF @ Ultima Vez
My class is about working with powerfull physicality related to the floor and air. The focus of the class is to develop movement in different levels – up and down possitions, shifting support and balance in different parts of the body and handstand work .My inspiration for the class comes from every living moment that i sense in my life. We start class with full power by playing games that wake up the body and mind. Improvisation or Open dancing, will be the tool to start from. Later we slow down and focus on the short exercises that connect to final phrases that will end the class. Rythmically we extend and shift movement from the floor phrases in the air and down again, using speed and effinciency of our body. I want support action and fearlesness. In a playfull environment I want to work with instinct to discover different kinds of movement possibilities. The point of my class is to develop trust among the group and build safe conclusions to difficult actions.
