Inside Extremity

Online-Workshop with Eva Georgitsopoulou
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2020/21

The workshop Inside Extremity is a dance process which focuses on physical strength, awareness, improvisation ability and personal coordination. While exploring our individuality, we look for the understanding of the body’s ability to produce dance vocabulary. We start with physical improvisation tasks in order to explore and build movement awareness and creativity. The work uses technical tasks which propose both physical freedom and limitations as well as speed as a tool to transform the body through challenging its stamina. It leads the participants into exploring different qualities of movement and high speed of physicality while being clear with the intention of their bodies. In the second part, we create a long sequence that combines the tools of the Improvisation and uses challenging coordination. For the online attendance, the workshop will be adjusted into the space limitation of our homes with the aim to still fully transfer information and physical direction. The participants will be encouraged to find their own freedom and express themselves individually as performers.

Please note: The workshop takes place online!
