TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS
Video/Videostills: Timothy Bidwell
Photo Introduction to the focus of the training
The aim of the training is to create a reflexive body that is constantly receiving and processing sensorial information from the own body and the surroundings. “Listening” as a broader notion will be enhanced to move in relation to interior and exterior information – also in physically demanding situations. The created awareness forms the basis to relate in a conscious way to other bodies in space.
The training is physically demanding, including awareness for sensorial information, movement patterns (phrase work), and improvisation.
