INSTINCT intensive

When: August 15 – 19

Where: Utrecht, The Netherlands

Currently choreographer Iris van Peppen started the dance project INSTINCT, discovering human and animal instinctual movement. Next to this project the film of INSTINCT is shown at Cinedans Shorts. Iris is sharing this work throught several workshops like the introductional series and this intensive in Hong Kong and the Netherlands.

For this INSTINCT INTENSIVE Iris is looking for movers and dancers (prof, semi-prof, non-prof) that are willing to investigate instinctual movement from somatic principles. This by exploring different qualities and ways of physical abandoning: 
– head and neck release
– spinal movement
– arterial flow (blood circulation)
– connective tissue (fascia)
– free articulation of the joints.The curiousity for this work lays in what comes after the stretch of ones boundaries of abandoning and tiredness; how do the dancers perceive space, make physical choices and open up their subconcious through their sensory perception.
This intensive will be closed with an informal studio presentation.
For the INSTINCT INTENSIVE Iris is looking for 9 or 12 open minded movers/dancers that:
– are well experienced in improvisation, instant composition
– have great floorwork skills
– are open for experimentation
– have great stamina and endurance
– are injury free
– are available on the full
