Sagí Gross named his choreographic method "Physical Script", as he likes to think about the dancers more as moving actors who use their bodies to produce "physical expressive words", instead of "movements.” He seeks to create meaning to every moment and movement and to articulate its meaning, within the context of the material provided by this physical language. He is attracted to the sense of present of being in the 'here and now'. The class focuses on different qualities and dynamics. Developing exercises that focus on articulating movements, to give space between the bones, joints and against the floor. Finding ways to individualize these physical ideas for each person, considering their needs and unique way of working. Further more, using musicality to develop and challenge. Motivating the dancers to enjoy and appreciate the technique, next to self awareness, as well as keeping a healthy mind and body.
Sagí Gross is a choreographer, teacher and performer. He was educated at Tellma Yellin school of the arts in Tel Aviv and Dutch National Ballet School in Amsterdam.
