Shifting space – Fabian Wixe
Contemporary Dance Workshop
The class will be a practice based around Flying Low (David Zambrano’s technique), going in and out of the ground, passing through yourself and the others in the room. We will also explore flow in relation to the group, and how to carry and recycle the energy of the group in movement and stillness.
Throughout the work we will talk with our bodies, encouraging this communication in order to help ourselves resolve problems as, or preferably before they arise. Move with your whole body, including your problems, doubts and limits, always pushing towards the edges as we aim to go full with a body that is ready to respond with or without preparation, when and how you need it.
Finally, we will work with a given phrase and exercises specific to this work, adding to it each day, increasing the speed and the complexity of the body, while calming the mind in order to keep up.
Prepare to sweat, to keep working when you’re tired (smile to the pain), and to enjoy!!
Level: Professional and experienced non-professional dancers
