Agostina D’Alessandro – Workshop Conscious Release + Research Days
13&14.04.19 / workshop
By using the contemplation of inner space and through the release of tension, an effective means to stop habitual patterns and formal movements in the dance arises. Full creativity can than be experienced and form appears only to serve a unique expression: the present moment.
At the end of this workshop I’ll invite some people to join me for a 4 days deep research. This research period will be organized in Brussels the days that follow the workshop. (address to be confirmed). This intense research is for free and only by invitation.
The application of this technique optimizes the body perception by building awarness towards the current state and abilities of the dancer. The body becomes a boarderless tool for the dancer’s imagination and its dance patterns.
