The class integrates creativity with technique to allow participants to develop their relationship with their physical, emotional, creative and social body. Starting form a single anatomical-poetical reference, the class will shift perspective from the body in isolation, to the body in space, to the body as a group. This physical and technical class will mix exploratory tasks with set material, working with shifting weight, floor and acrobatic work, spirals, movement quality and dynamics, to engage the whole body as a physical instrument within a poetical landscape.
