Somatics into Composition

Kurs with Adalisa Menghini

In this class we deal with the questions of: How do we do, what we do, when we want to do it?
Working with composition requires the capacity to witness what you do while dancing without judgement. In composing one has the choice in understanding more deeply what space, time and relation means. This class brings different somatic techniques together with compositional choice making. We will explore the inner and outer space, connecting to the sensing body and create ensemble.

This class is open to everyone having some kind of movement experience.
