Workshop archive 2016 Men's Course

There are still places available in the workshop! If you'd like to sign up, please send an email to inari.pesonen@zodiak.fi

The course will focus on the self-knowledge of our body and on the exploration of simple movements and their meaning. The participants will be challenged to use their physicality for a deep expression and to find their own limits in the dimension of gestures. The teaching will guide the group to develop awareness of their body language, alone and together with the others.

Classes start with a warm-up that builds endurance and stamina with some lengthening and stretching exercises. Short combinations of movements and choreographies are used to challenge our brain, to try to memorise steps and shapes, and to express ourselves. During the course we will be going through basic elements from different dance techniques: floor work, improvisation, contact improvisation and physical theatre.

The course is intended for men of all ages, for beginners as well as dancers with previous experience.

Beniamino Borghi (b. 1978), born in Milan, is a dancer, choreographer and media artist. He graduated as Interior designer and at the same time attended several workshops for professional dancers led by relevant choreographers: David Hernandez, Ted Stoffer, Koshro Adibi, Inaki AzpillagaDavid ZambranoTero Saarinen and recently DV8 Physical Theatre. He has worked as a dance teacher and choreographer for the amateur group Loviisa Open Dance Company as well as professionals groups Boomtown Dance and Kaakon Tanssi ry in Kotka.
