One week working individual and group improvisation with Horacio Macuacua. The structure and the goal of the workshop are the creation and composition of movement, Horacio proposes a highly physical work that demands attention, interest and alert rather than a certain technique level. The participants learn to relate and connect themselves instantly to the environment and to develop playfulness and spontaneity in taking decisions, for immediate composition full of meaning.

Where: Barcelona

When: September 16th until September 20th, 2019

Horacio’s approach is based on his own intuition and varies and evolves with what the group offers. The basis of this work is the diversity of the personal movement and world of each participant, who will be working from the body and with images and emotions to discover new and surprising possibilities. The intention always lies in accessing the full expression and communication in the personal dance, not in terms of virtuosity but from the uniqueness as a being.

Everybody learns from everybody, to risk more and to delve deeper into the potential of their own creativity by sharing, observing, attending, seeing other bodies and appreciating what is offered.

Dance happens more present, more complete, it gets deeper and richer.
