AGOSTINA D’ALESSANDRO / AWAKENING … / Workshop
10&11.12.16 / Garage29
This workshop is a two days fully immersion in the exploration of the body anatomy, making use of this inner capacities and how to increase them.
As professionals dancers we have an enormous amount of knowledge being accumulated in our bodies. Using a very specific method we will awake this abilities and work on integrate them in our dance vocabulary, discovering and increasing the full potential of our creativity.
The first part of the day we will work on warm up the body (and the mind) by a deep manipulation. This manipulation is always orientated trough two basic principles: to open and release the body in order to let the movement organically become “virtuosity”.
The second part of the day will be use to explore some essentials physical principles as weight and alignment in order to “follow the movement that is being done” instead of making it. Then we will integrate this body quality into the instantaneous composition creating small group pieces.
The proposition of this workshop is orientated to professional dancers, circus artist, actors and performers. To all people that want to deeply research the principles for efficient use of anatomy.
