The importance of doing by Fabian Wixe
I propose a week workshop mixing morning training with afternoons full of improvisation and composition, a work session in which you can learn new techniques and apply them immediately.
I am looking for dancers and performers who wish to develop their skills and spend a week exploring their own physicality in relation to a group.
The morning sessions will be dedicated to technical and physical training; a mix of Flying Low (David Zambrano’s technique) and other floor work, training and games to improve strength, flexibility and awareness. I will also propose choreographic material in the mornings with a focus on increasing speed and precision.
I want to explore listening through the physical work, listening to the group and to oneself within a group, and how energy can be re-cycled and shared. Run with your heart rather than with your feet (they will follow).
In the afternoons we will work through both improvisation and composition; I’d like us to move together, creating a space where we practice, explore, perform and ’fail’ without judging ourselves or others. I would like to create an environment in which we can be inspired and inspire each other, a place to see each other and to let ourselves be seen.
We will establish a routine of performing improvisation for each other, to let this work be a way into creating, to shift between not knowing in advance what you will do, into creating very detailed scores.
In terms of the compositional work I would like to share methods of working used and developed within ’Project i19’ for our latest production ’Birds (come back to bones)’.
