In this workshop we will explore ways to improve our corporeal awareness in connection with a partner. To achieve this goal, we are going to use elements from various techniques like contact improvisation, acrobatics, acro-yoga, improvisation, personal movement investigation and contemporary dance. The workshop progresses from simple exercises of receiving weight and moving as a couple or small groups, to more complex acrobatic exercises that lead gradually to the final partnering combination. At the same time, with proposals on sensations, feelings, images and movement qualities, you will be invited to discover and augment your personal way of moving. With the findings of this research we will set structured phrases, which will encourage your unique way of dancing.
We want you to enjoy every step of the process! It is exciting to dance with other people!
