The sessions start with warm-ups that explore grounding, balance, focus and body spirals. The second part of the session consists of improvisation tasks focusing on subjects such as articulation, timing, listening and decision-making in relation to other dancers and the space we dance in. We explore the potential and the articulation of different textures, mass distributions, variations of muscle tonus, tempos, magnitudes of movement and the energy we expend in our movement and dance. We also work on our personal relationship with our habitual patterns of movement, using tools such as definition, interference and rerouting.
