Improvisation Through Listening

Kurs with Maddi Fuente Ubani

This class is an invitation to find one's own movement through free exploration, applying creative patterns such as movement qualities based on contemporary dance technique, images, sounds, texts, writing or voice.  
The exploration starts with ourselves by focusing on our body, in the now, and working as it feels right now, on this day. Starting with guided exercises that are physical and/ or poetic, we explore different ways to relate to the group, to raise awareness of the space and to compose in real time so that the body is ready to reflect, influence and be influenced.
In each class we play with a different structure but always building on an idea/base (a focus) so that the movement proposal develops, goes deeper and allows us to go to unknown places.  
We exchange and observe the proposals in the different groups and create space to learn from and inspire each other. No previous experience is required, just an openness to explore and play. This is a safe space for all.
