During workshops, students grow within the emotional and physical realms of their craft, emotionally maturing through quick decision making within a performance and learning how to analyze a situation in order to better comprehend and react to it. Understanding these key elements allows students to become more open to a wider range of possibilities within a creative process.
My classes progress through improvisational tasks; I share movement tools through imagery, in order to create possibilities within the body. We aim to use these new possibilities to improve the movement quality, the awareness of the body in relation to the space, others and itself, as well as working in the transitional points from ‘movement to movement’: the smooth transformation of one trajectory into the next.
One of my main focuses of these classes is tri-dimensionality; breaking the flat perception of the body. I try to create awareness of the spatial planes, with special attention towards the space behind us. Discovering the freedom of traveling in any direction, creating a maze from within. We aim for strength while remaining soft and supple, sharing a raw, animalistic and grounded way of moving. Relaxing to reach farther, softening to create possibilities. Finding good solutions to accidents, which are, in my world, an opportunity, rather than a misfortune.
