Performance-Projekt with Eva Georgitsopoulou
In this performance workshop, we aim as a group to create a common language and at the same time to form each one’s own dance into different movement vocabulary. In the first level ,we will work with improvisation tasks technically in order to learn how to coordinate the whole body into small and big movement pathways. To actually train physically the body's totality and be able to activate the muscles and each body part by keeping them connected with the center and the spine. We will work with different intensities of muscles and we will learn to create musicality in the body by choosing short or long movement pathways, internal and external physical expressions and forms. We will challenge our speed and our stamina because in those places we will be forced to activate these technique tools in order to keep our dance creative and alive. After forming a group understanding , as a next level, we will challenge and work on our ability to choose and create stories inside group composition and creative conditions. We will work on the intension of our own dance and focus on understanding how physical forms can change color, meaning ,feeling and esthetic when the intension of the dancer is changing.
Dance improvisation is an expression on real time and it is a space with endless possibilities! It is like automat writing. In order to transform this automatism into creativity, we need technical tools, body awareness and the intention to talk with our whole being. This is where the movement instinct becomes dance.
Fee: 180 € / red: 160 € / professional dancers: 140 € | Application for the project: firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally you can join the contemporary class “Inside Extremity”
The class focuses on creating a sense of physical power, energy and musicality while exploring our individuality and being available to the group energy and the entire space. It consists of two parts. We start and insist on a physical improvisation in order to explore deep our movement awareness ,to work the articulation of the body and to develop ones own movement, musicality and imagination. The improvisation plays in between physical availability and limitation. We aim to the transformation of the body in any kind of situation through diving into our extreme and unpredictable side. The participants are led to extreme positions, different qualities of movement and high speed of physicality. The class continues with short floor exercises and complex standing combinations with acrobatic elements. We finish with creating a long sequence that combines the tools of the class, in where the participants are encouraged to play with dynamics and express themselves & their souls individually as performers.
