Movement Laboratory is a workshop for the exploration of dance, body and movement. We focus on movement and study it through a variety of themes. We work using the notion of a toolbox, and identify new ways to gain deeper understanding of our ways of moving and make our movement palette richer. In the classes we examine how mental images, qualities of movement and characteristics of the body as well as space, time, energy and intensity affect our movements.

We explore internal and external impulses and ponder what ’grounding the body’ or ’verticality’ might mean in this context. Through these movement-based themes we examine elements that are always present in dance – constantly also remembering that movement is never just movement, but always also experience of the self and the world.

The course is ideal for more advanced dance enthusiasts who have taken dance classes before. Dance activities during the course are based on each participant's unique qualities and starting points, and we can select the themes we want to focus on together as a group.
