This course focuses on opening the body and the mind and making them more sensitive through various exercises with the aim of gaining comprehensive control of the body and achieving total presence. The objective is to work towards precise bodily states and qualities of movement. The themes of the course are approached through precise movement series as well as dance improvisation. The course is also an introduction to the vocabulary of movement developed by Carl Knif and the methods he uses in his choreographic work.

Carl Knif has danced in numerous performances created by Finnish choreographers, and has created works of his own since 2003. In 2012 he established his own dance company, the Carl Knif Company.
