Improvisation at Play

Kurs with Maria Colusi

The class is an ongoing experimental journey, where time and breath play an important role. We will use principles from release technique. Using the floor as support in order to release the tension of the superficial muscles and to find the soft and deep connection inside the joints as well as the alignment of our bone structure. Through floor exercises we will train to isolate and initiate movements either from the centre or from any other part of the body, in any speed and direction in order to experience the body in all its dimensions and possibilities. Using these principles, we gradually bring in the verticality, driving the body into the space, exercising weight, momentum and coordination through choreographic sequences which then later will be the trigger into different improvisational frames. Playing, dealing and challenging our way of dancing and composing.
