WORK your roots ! – Workshop by Jason Respilieux

29 May, 2021 garage29 Sin categoría


24.01> 04/02/2022

In search of the sensitive body, Jason Respilieux’s workshop follows a path of sensations and a possible transposition of the principles of permaculture to dance.  It is aimed at sensitive dancers who are curious about the connection of their bodies and their senses with the living world around them.

You will begin the morning with improvisation exercises and the learning of short phrases, where sight, smell, taste, touch and listening will become the starting point of a nuanced search for links with what surrounds you, both physically and psychologically.

You will continue in the afternoon by studying permaculture to bring it to a choreographic composition. How do you translate some of the principles and ethics of permaculture into your own dance? Can you make the singular expression of everyone flourish? Can you imagine a choreography that translates the natural patterns around – and within – you?

Pampered by a temperate and just wet enough climate of this workshop-germoir, Jason Respilieux and the Garage29 invite you to grow at the speed of plants. Through atmospheric walks in the perma theories you will branch your minds like a giant mycelium taking shape. After 2 long weeks of rooting, you will finally be ready to hatch in front of a sunny audience, during a sensational presentation, on Friday February 4th at 7pm.
