"TALK THROUGH YOUR BODY”
Dance, as I conceive it, is able to awaken imagination in the spectator, stir emotions, it can enshrine values and communicate things that cannot be communicated in words. For me, the basic building block in training is to understand the body through imagination. In this way we are able to reveal in the body many various movement qualities and principles, to find a specific dynamic, coordination and chiefly inside logic. My training system is based on the principle of "the body as a puppet". This method strives to achieve the maximum kinetic possibilities in a person’s body without needless muscle tension and stress, develops plasticity, musicality, the ability to react to impulses, we learn to listen to our own inner rhythm, perceive the space around us and listen to the others.
An integral part of the workshop is partnering, where use of the mentioned principles, the perception of the partner and absolute trust lead to perfect coordination.Thanks to an understanding of physical patterns partnering can become a logical and powerful tool of communication. Limits of balance, manipulation, passing and receiving impulses, listening, guiding and following form parts of partnering and move dance on to a magical level. During workshops we enrich a person’s own kinetic possibilities and the borders of physical and mental conception of dance. We ask the question what dance means to us and what attracts us to it, what purpose training serves, where a performer’s own interpretation of dance begins. What role does a physical action and dance play when communicating an idea or creating a theatrical situation.
We will work individually, in partnering, we try to touch theatrical situations through physical action, ... We will "talk through our bodies".
Daily class would systematically guid you through several exercises based on the mentioned system, developed continuously, smoothly and logically from the basic principles into the very complex ones. Step by step we would build movement qualities, work with coordination, dynamics,
movement transitions, musicality and imagination. From the floor to standing.
