You will never loose her” A dance week full of embodiment, empowerment and enjoyment. Every day we will work around another concept to create material that in the end of the week will result in a performance. Morning: 10:00 – 11:00 dance strength training 11:00 – 11:15 break 11:15 – 12:45 contemporary technique class 12:45 – 13:00 stretch 13:00 – 14:00 lunch break 14:00 – 17:00 working on the project: researching the theme of the day and creating choreography The contemporary technique class in the morning will be a mix of different contemporary styles and techniques such as Limón technique (fall and recovery and the interplay between weight and weightlessness), floorwork & flying low (spiraling in and out of the floor, finding the middle level, combining jumps and turns with floorwork) and countertechnique (directing parts of the body away from each other in space). We will also explore various improv methods such as Gaga and instant composition (finding your own flow, expression through movement alone and together). DAY 1 – Approach the world with childlike wonder: finding joy DAY 2 – Wild hearts are untamable: researching ferocious, rough and savage movement qualities DAY 3 – Free as a bird: what makes you feel free and how can we use that feeling in dance? DAY 4 – Falling in love: exploring the feeling of falling, sinking and giving in. DAY 5 – Performance time in the morning! Somewhere on a beautiful spot in / around Leiden.
