Flying Low & Passing Through (4h class)

This workshop is a full immersion into the world of floor work and improvisation, an opportunity to expand your dance vocabulary and methods to take with you on your own journey.

Flying Low
This technique will teach you how to go into and out of the earth rapidly and efficiently. Based on the principle of the spiral, it encourages the practice of following pathways in a curve, enabling the whole body to travel down and up (or vice versa). Each participant will learn the foundations, with an emphasis simultaneously on their individual approach and their connection with the whole group. Once connected, we practise fast and with loud music.
Flying low is a technique initiated and developed by David Zambrano. Irene practises with him regularly at his Art Centre in Brussels. Her method of teaching this technique tries to be as true as possible to Zambrano’s original teachings. Focusing particularly on curves and spirals with Irene, you will become an expert in effortlessness and elegance.
Passing Through
Passing Through is an improvisation-based group practice where participants make instantaneous choreography. In each session you will be mastering your own presence in the space, you will learn how to travel in small, medium and large pathways. What is a pause, an arrival and a departure; an entrance and an exit? Whether in a group, in a couple or even solos, the practice has clear, consistent directions and a few rules. Participants develop an ability to think with the mind of the whole group. Sharpening this lightening-quick response-ability allows the collective to be the star of the show. Dancers, choreographies, space, audiences, individuals’ pasts, presents and futures: all come together.
