Using a set of warm-up exercises we will rediscover the alignment of the body and activate the area around the sacrum. We will stimulate an inner flow of energy that enables the execution of all subsequent movement. Through choreographed structures we will place an external geometry inside the performer’s body and explore a deep investigation in presence and intentionality. Through improvisation we will strip away the need to show, to present and to perform so that the body can exist not only formally but energetically.
Date: June 8th // 1:30pm-4:30pm
