TOWARDS: German Jauregui (Ultima Vez) & Judith Sánchez Ruiz (Sasha Waltz) – April, 2019

TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that besides the physical praxis, includes evening lectures, video screenings, and performances. It’s the metaphor of aiming at something – to expose and engage ourselves in physical investigations and conceptual challenges that can foster creativity and encourage discoveries.

Where: Vitlycke – Center for Performing Arts, Tanumshede, Sweden

When: 1 – 12 April, 2019

• 1 – 6 APR (6 DAYS = 30H) •
German Jauregui | “Ultima Vez vocabulary: technique + partnering work”

During the workshop, floor work and partnering will be combined. We will study and practice some basic tools and principles, which will allow us to find precision, organicity, and the right intention while we dance, as well as to explore different movement qualities and physical states. The movement will be considered as a theatrical act rather than as a technique.
We will familiarise with concepts like risk, trust, moving with necessity, instinct, self-protection, how to protect somebody else, speed, fragility, softness, weakness, tension. The work will allow us to discover how we dance, where the limits are and how we can go further. We will find answers to these questions and new questions may arise.

Judith Sanchez Ruiz | “Your Own God: improvisation workshop”

The workshop will trigger the un/comfortable zone of the participants. A ‘pull-out’ from the present moment and within it, of an unpublished present of chaos and vulnerability.
Judith Sanchez designed the «Radio exercise» – a practice that allows radical changes of states, provoking shifts of action in the brain, combining spontaneously determined information and making space for complexity and coincidence. All these explorations are an integral part of Sanchez’s processes as a choreographer, that both influence and structure her creative work.
“I will guide you to look for the unknown exploration of different approaches to movement, and we will learn how to develop movement in composition with space and in a relationship with others. I will encourage you to own your movement, find precision and wildness all together, but overall, live in your dance!”
