This is the first time Marion Sparber & Alan Fuentes-Guerra come to THE NETHERLANDS to teach “Shared Levitation” so this is a unique opportunity you cannot miss!
Join this weekend of 10 hours full of energy and fun!

Single day is possible!
No need to come with a partner, you will find your potential partner at the workshop!

This workshop is open to:
– artists from performative fields such as dance and theatre.
– movers with backgrounds like acrobatics, martial arts, acroyoga, hand in hand and contact-improvisation!
– students in the final year of their education from these practices.

We start the class by opening our channels of awareness and connecting to our partner by manipulating, testing and speculating with his/her structure and weight. A special focus in this phase is the use of our whole body doing the task, not only being limited to our hands and arms. In this first part, the use of play-fullness allows us to connect to our instinctive and primitive side, tuning into a shared natural flow of breath. With the help of exercises in different constellations, every time changing and adapting to a new partner and universe -we listen, follow and direct the movement as one functioning organism through space. We get ready to jump, cross, push, pull, avoid, embrace and suspend each other. We like to focus on an organic way of Partnering, based on action/reaction principles inspired by Contact Improvisation and Fighting styles. We like to access the movement from a perspective of a deeper connection and try to avoid the superficial habit of copying shapes. Instead, we motivate every couple to find a unique way of communicating with the partner and look for individual solutions and variations of the material. Another important aspect of our class is the constant change of the level of activity for both roles. We learn how much resistance, power and direction is needed to reach our maximum together by investigating with the given tools, and finally learning fixed Partnering material at the end of each class.
