Contemporary dance intensive improvisation workshop with Horacio Macuacua in Paredes (Porto) Portugal.

Where: CDVS- Conservatório de Dança do Vale do Sousa, Paredes (Porto) Portugal

When: April 15th to 19th 2019 / 4hrs daily 3pm – 7pm

Horacio Macuacua proposes a highly physical work that demands attention, interest and alert rather than a certain technique level, challenging the potentiality of each dancer to push the limits of imagination and expression further to discover new and surprising possibilities.
The workshop evolves with what the group offers, as the ability to create and compose physically need training and attention as well as technique or style. Through the group process, the participants are summoned into transformation and acceptance, collaboration, observation of their own dance and of the whole group.
Let’s dive into the work, get the engines started and let the imagination flow!

The Mozambican dancer and choreographer is the artistic director of the dance company which bears his name. Horacio Macuacua develops projects that aim to go beyond established forms. Flexibility of mind and availability to catch the moment translate movement instantly into compositions that are complex and elaborated, displaying depth and playfulness, darkness and light.
He has carried out his projects: COMUM, Canais, Orobroy, Stop!, Smile If You Can!, Fighting room, Convoy, Paradise is not in the sky! and Theka.
Horacio has collaborated with choreographers Cristina Moura, Thomas Hauert, Pablo Colbert, George Khumalo, Wim Vandekeybus/Última Vez etc. … and David Zambrano, considering him his maestro and mentor.
As a teacher, he has given classes and workshops in France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Cyprus, USA, South Korea, Brazil, South Africa, Mozambique, etc. …
