Where: Rambert studios, London, UK
When: 9 August at 10 am to 1pm
The technique of the internationally acclaimed choreographer Tero Saarinen stems from awakening the senses, recognising the weight of one’s body and hence maximising the use of both balance and off-balance. Saarinen’s distinctive style fuses elements from his backgrounds in ballet, contemporary dance and a wide range of Asian traditions. Saarinen’s style has been described as “organic”, ”an inventive mixture of grotesqueness and beauty” and “butoh with wings”.
The aim of the workshop is to activate every cell and nerve ending in the body, to become fully Aware, Alert and Attentive – 360 degrees present, resonating and alive. The goal is to make full use of each dancer’s technical knowledge and explore, liberate and further nourish the potential of each individual.
“My goal is to reach a state of awareness where even the skin is curious and alive.”
– Tero Saarinen
