- Approaches to Partnering -
Driven by my love of dancing with others, and inspired by experiences with revered figures from my own training -Jozef Frucek & Linda Kapetanea (Fighting Monkey), Rasmus Ölme, David Zambrano (Passing Through / Flying Low) to name a few- this workshop will draw on various approaches to partnering work, in order to develop our sensibility of working in (and out of) contact with others.
The day starts with a conditioning practice: physiological training aiming to harness and refine an all-round availability for a multitude of movement potentials. Loud music and lots of sweating, whipping ourselves up to a state of survival instinct.
The workshop will continue with various partnering exercises, tasks and explorations – using improvisation as well as structured form to develop and refine particular skills for approaching our partner/s with curiosity, clarity, freedom and fearlessness.
