Movement Research

Profitraining with Sigal Zouk, Jan Burkhardt

The training mainly focuses on bringing our perception channels to a state of immediacy and to let our motor system become maximally reactive. This happens through applying explorative anatomical research as well as opening improvisational structures and the negotiation between information from within and around the bodies.
We aim to develop a mobile and flexible body that has the possibility to unfold in many ways. At the same time we will remain attentive to our perception and to the body´s performative potential in each moment.
