lucid motion – contemporary dance + theatre tools
this workshop seeks to find an expression of the unique movement of each participant by articulating tools of contemporary dance, acrobatics technique and theatre in a creative and playful way. we will play with concrete improvisation guidelines so as to be conscious of where within ourselves we are coming from, from where we are doing what we do, with the intention that this awareness allows us to know where our focus is and what relationships we are establishing when we improvise. and so we can dive as deep as possible into the development of an idea with a clear direction in search of a particular universe. the objective is to immerse ourselves in a methodology, in a way of doing that gives us a structure to make coherent decisions based on each improvisation we make; and thus understand what we are generating and transmitting and at the same time feel free to play within this creative world. we will try to move in connection with our thoughts and sensations, paying attention to what we are thinking and feeling while we move, in order to reach a complete, opened, available body while moving. these tools will be used as a vehicle to open a wide range of possibilities of expression that will be awakened by self-exploring and connecting with our undiscovered, hidden or blocked capacities of expression. we will focus on one-on-one exercises, but we’ll also participate in group and individual activities.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!
