This workshop will focus on the fulcrums of the human body in space. We’ll try to imagine our movements as an elastic deformation of the body, starting from the ground anchorage thus looking for and finding new forms and structures. A “game” based on what seems to be a cluster of dichotomies: stability and instability, weightlessness and ground anchorage, giving and receiving, roots and wings.
Our confidence in the ability of our skeleton to support us and to support our partners will be enhanced by trying to listen to, and manage our inner movements, timing and the rhythm of the different parts of our body. Our goal will be to perceive the rhythm and the movement of our partner through the contact, the art of playing, the surprise and the improvisation.
