Hunting Shapes

Maria Colusi

How we embody ideas through shapes? What underlies our movement behaviours? How we work with word as we articulates the body in space and time? This performance project has the purpose to search and develop a creative body through listening and following our own interests using the imagination, physical contact and intuition in order to challenged our own habits and creativity. The development of the work will start setting material by exploring ideas, sensations, reactions and emotions flowing from the words, playing and understanding the word as significant or as an object/ sound. The collected material will be re-work in small groups, solos and in a larger group triggering new strategies and choreographic material.

Class The class an on-going experimental journey, where time, breath and weight are the key factors to experience the fact of being grounded. It offers practical and creative tools through touch, imagination and intuition, creating a dialogue between action and the perception of spontaneous movement. The first part of the class is a guided improvisational warm-up, in which we work the body by integrating breath, gravity, textures, supports, speed changes and coordination in order to create fluidity, efficiency and awareness in movement. In the second part we will explore different movement ideas and tasks through partner work, which will help us to stimulate and witness our own movement research. We will challenge our perception and creativity as well the listening in improvisational practice. The third part focuses on the practice of composition in a group form, using all the previously worked elements in a playful and precise way.
