Come to dance at NOD during the 2-week workshop led by Andrea Costano Martini.
The workshop is included into NOD International Contemporary dance Program 2019/20 |2nd trimester and open to 7 external dancers
Where: NOD Lavanderia a Vapore Corso Pastrengo 51 – Collegno, Italy
When: March 16th – 27th 2020
Deadline for applications: February 30th 2020
The days will be divided in two parts.
The first part will be a gaga dancers class of 1h 15.
Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+. These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. Gaga/dancers classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga/dancers deepen dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
In the second part, we will work on sections of Martini’s repertoire.
The choreographic material will be an opportunity to put into practice many of the elements that we will explore during the gaga class in the context of a complex series of very articulated steps and intentions.
Specifically, we will see how qualities like explosiveness, delicacy, speed and virtuosity can coexist with and serve the performative act in a very clear relationship to the audience. We will enter a world where theatricality and animalism are just two sides of the same coin.
