NB. The course is held at Zodiak studio B2

The dance workshop given by Gabriela Aldana-Kekoni takes place in the studio but also outdoors. The objective is to become inspired by nature, experience the winter season through body and movement, and find inspiration for one's own dance in the cold but beautiful time of year. 

The day starts in the studio where we perform initial warm-ups. We then go outdoors, let the locations and the environment inspire us, and record movement exercises and the environment on video. This material is then used in the studio as material for a movement-based installation. Experiences and impressions of the activities we perform outdoors are also analysed through movement and writing.

Please dress warmly for the outdoor activities. No earlier dance experience is required; a desire to engage in physical exercise and to reflect on your relationship to winter and the polar night through dance are.
