This workshop has developed through the years a structure in which participants are challenged to explore their own creativity by learning new ways of dealing with their bodies. Using breathing exercises to create length and space inside the body, long lasting rebounds, changes of rhythm, freezing moments and extreme expansion and reducing of the movement, the class aims to provide the dancer with an acute awareness of the inner body and to explore the physical borders and the intentionality of movement beyond the actual form.
