The workshop aims to offer a look at the relationship between the body and its spatial applications, contextualizing it in a technical approach, notions of weight, axis, impulse and flow. This look combines three points: floor work, the relation of the body in space to the principles of the consciousness of movement and the experimentation of the dynamic qualities of movement, bringing to the surface the perception of sensations for the physical and scenic preparation.
Using the movement awareness work, it provides the dancer with a greater awareness of bone and muscle structures as well as the functioning of the joints – fundamental elements for movement awareness. As a result, and guided by the movement, the student appropriates his territory, the body, recognizing it within a self-knowledge, investigating the dance.
