S 12A / Contemporary Training

Workshop with Sara Wookey
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2015 / Open Spaces#2-2015

Beginning on the floor, we move up to standing and into dynamic movement patterns that move across the floor in an ongoing manner. This is a highly physical training, that encourages anatomical awareness, stimulates neuromuscular activity and engages a use of space, time and rhythm. We conclude with a movement phrase that brings together patterns practiced during the session and that supports kinaesthetic learning. It is informed by Bartenieff Fundamentals, Body Weather Laboratory and post-modern dance techniques, and accessible to trained and non-trained dancers

This workshop is part of the workshop 'Trio A Repertoire Intensive'. There is only limited availability for individual registration for the training.
