In the context of DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE – the international symposium on the critical reflection of body, sound and space in the city, Lisi Estaras & Nicolas Vladyslav (Les Ballets C de la Be) will give a workshop in Studio 44.
THE PHYSICAL SHELTER
Movement is the base, the primordial instinct like a shelter is. We can express in our own unique way what we live and feel. We can translate our thoughts into movements, and make a simple dance became extreme. We can interact with others, become intimate, hide. All of this within the frame of our body, this is our only shelter.
The class will start with a general warm up and then we will work with short compositions and improvisations. On the second day we will recapitulate in a short showing what we had worked on.
26. SEP 2014 | 14:00 – 17:00 and 27. SEP 2014 | 15:00 – 18:00 at Studio 44 // DorkyPark
Registration is now open. Please send an email to email@example.com
Workshop fee: 80,00€
