ATELIER · TECHNIQUE AND MOVEMENT RESEARCH - Description
In my methodology I propose a work based on the compositional factors of dance: energy, rhythm, space and form. The Jooss-Leeder method inspires much of my class. Respecting the different needs and circumstances of the group, I focus on breathing, repetition and opposing directional forces. The composition and improvisation exercises open a dialogue with each performer. I seek to connect them with their personal expression, unique and perfect. With this proposal I would like to create better conditions in the research process for the participants, looking for the creative potential of each one of them, beyond their physical aptitudes. With these premises, there will be work through play and pleasure, improvisation and body narrative. Dancers will connect with a personal, authentic expression and develop a greater awareness of their limits, in order to overcome them.
