Description of 5-day intensive dance study, research, practice with Humanhood – Dance Hybrid Malta 2019
HumanhoodPractice (1st session)
HumanhoodPractice is the core foundation of the company’s movement language and physical exploration developed by Rudi Cole and Julia Robert Pares.
Inspired by the past decade of their experience, both in the Western training and the Eastern physical and spiritual approaches, including Tai-chi, Qi-gong, Moving Breath and Yoga, the sessions bring special awareness to the articulation of the spine while focusing on the state of mind and the groundless of the body.
The movements are circular, fluid and rhythmic, working with intention and totality and using the coordination between visualisation and breath. The practice pushes the limits of the mind and the stamina of the body. The whole experience is guided by Rudi and Julia, and supported by a sonic journey.
Repertoire & Creative workshop (2nd session)
Dancing to the original soundtracks, you will get to experience what it is like to move in Humanhood’s works.
Repertoire sessions offer an insight into the ideas and the movement repertoire of each company production. It is an opportunity to learn in detail the different movement sequences and the intention behind them, receiving information about the mental application and internal state of the company dancers when performing the work.
During the Creative sessions, Julia and Rudi share some of their choreographic tools and movement quality. This is an opportunity for dancers who are interested in getting to know more about the creative process of the company and are interested in working closely with Rudi and Julia, as well as young artists and movers who would like to develop their choreographic skills.
