With Manuela Blanchard (Switzerland)
Dates: 5 – 6 November
‘For those who have already attended a workshop, Manou will be bringing new material within the context of Earth and Water Dance. This workshop is open to those who have already attended and those who want to discover this work.’
In this workshop you can discover the magic of improvisation in a liquid element.
The warm water invites you to let go and to experiment in an organic and fluid way of moving. You learn how to play with its resistance and dynamic, how to transition between following the waves and making soft and clear propositions.
Explorations are based on listening and perception and we learn to compose with the unexpected. Our body becomes a fluid moving support, inviting our partner(s) to ride on waves created by the common momentum.
When we let the physical forces such as friction, buoyancy or inertia lead us and take us into the unknown.
As no one decides where to go, we engage deeply in a nonverbal communication, where we listen to the dance and where it wants to grow in the present moment.
You will dance following several improvisation principles and learn ways to offer a good and safe support in movement. On land you also learn how to let yourself fall into motion and how to stay in graceful flow. There will be lots of space for duets and group dance, in music or in silence.
Over the two day weekend we will spend two sessions in the studio and two sessions in a Hydro therapy pool 34 deg.
