Microbatics is a 3-day collaborative workshop based around the practice of acrobatics and handstands with Winston Reynolds & Verena Schneider.

Where: Dornbirn; Zirkushalle – Dr. Anton Schneider Straße 28 b, Austria

When: 22-24 February

Deadline for applications: 21.February

Winston Reynolds & Verena Schneider

Looking at several methods of movement practice based around the disassociation of the regular gymnastics rigid form, and how we can deconstruct and build up more diverse options of movement choice and freedom, especially within the more inverted and inverse levels of movement. (^Upside Down^)

One of Acrobatics main aspects is the switching between the primary functions of limbs.
Legs become arms, feet become hands, in this way we train to become more accustomed to working off axis and within inversion.

February: 22-23-24

Friday: 17.00-22.00h,
Saturday: 11.00-18.00h,
Sunday: 10.00-17.00h

Registration and Inscription: Yeknomovement@gmail.com (open for all movers with physical background and the interest in acrobatics and handstands combined with movement).


A collaborative workshop – Looking at the interrelation of acrobatics and un-fixed handstand practice.

Agility within Acrobatics

We will be learning about the preparation and maintenance of the acrobat. And start zooming into specific aspects of acrobatics and locomotion.

Through my practice, I have discovered a certain sensitivity in acrobatics behind all the larger movements. It’s a tool where the smallest adjustment (Micro) can make a big impact on the physical outcome.
I will share with you an insight intopersonal vocabulary and system of individual acrobatic practice, and the methodology of using acrodance as a vehicle to expand possible movement choices and directions.

We will be learning about the preparation and maintenance of the acrobat. And start zooming into specific aspects of acrobatics and locomotion.

Another aspect we will use is the partner, and how a partnering situation can help to boost or access our learning process. Using the other as a reference point or means of physical assistance we can try to touch upon unfamiliar planes and levels of movement choices.

Deconstructing Handstands

We will pass through technical and creative handstand training into movement and improvisation. Trying to find the movement and balance in between. To make the handstand more moved and the movement more balanced.

All the training is on the floor (no blocks or handstand canes).

Technical handstand approach (Pascal Angelier) and influenced by dancers such as Tomislav English // Ferus Animi and Rob Haeyden.
Celebrate the failure in the improvisation. How can we accept that our handstand and movement are not always the same, the wished perfection of training becomes a trap for the performance.

Performative training.
Regarding the questions how and why do I train and create, the workshop will be physically demanding and with attention on endurance and awareness training.
