Engaging with Time
In this workshop we explore the different layers and textures of movement, connecting inner and outer sources of stimulation with our compositional mind. We engage in spiral and linear movement, rotation from the joints, folding and unfolding, connecting peripheral movement of the body with central and spinal movement, engaging with complex or simple/ pedestrian movement. We open up to and face the scales of timing, dynamics, direction and the tune (atmosphere) in the movement.
A central focus in this two day workshop is engaging with time: How can we make use of stillness in performance, composing with pause as a counterpart for action?
This workshop fosters skills for solo improvisation as well a base for collaboration.
