Eirini and Simons’ partnering workshop is a seamless combination of dance and acrobatics. We are aiming to explore and develop our physical knowledge and complexity of movements by using the two practices. The primary and practical focus throughout the workshop will be on the delicate meeting point between precision and organicity. In this exchange we learn from each other and we find new ways of using ours and the others body.
The workshop involves strong, complex, technical and physical sequences and tasks, focusing on the details, clarity and articulation. Utilizing spatial awareness and sensitivity, we will work with qualities of movement.
The sequences and tasks presented throughout the workshop will challenge the individual limitation and invite us to go beyond them.
Time: Mon-Thur at 12.30-15.30
