As improvisation artists, we are challenged on several levels by generating, composing and dancing movement material. This means that our attention applies equally to the moment of movement as well as to the design and execution of it. We are in a permanent process of creation.
From moment to moment we are able to make decisions and move along questions such as – When do we become active and when do we rest? How do we cultivate playfulness and curiosity? How can we connect without getting stuck, and if so, how can we direct ourselves without pressure? How can we allow ourselves to fail or even get lost instead of being random? How can we listen to the composition, push it forward without anticipating the course or the result?
In this intensive training we refine physical and mental permeability, cultivate intuitive and rapid implementation of internal or external impulses, work with compositional principles and useful tools to develop dance material and interaction and ultimately to step into the space beyond all that.
