Opening Up – A Movement Practice Of Performance Presence

These 8 consecutive days of morning practice are designed to prepare the body for the day ahead, while also investigating and fine-tuning what it means to be present in a performance. We will explore the triangle of Knowledge, Instinct, and Emotion, and how it is being negotiated by performers when working with complex ideas. We will establish strong physical training, freely based on Vinyasa, Shadow Yoga, and Hannes’s own practice that awakens and refines our physical relationship to the ground and our surroundings. This will lead us into specific exercises, explorations, and improvisations that will help us light up every corner of our performative practice. The aim is to ground our body, enrich our skills, power our awareness, and open up fully into the day.
