workshop theme

This workshop proposes creative movement - possibly coupled with other disciplines - to increase blood and oxygen flow to the brain, contribute to alertness & stimulate brain connectivity. These problematics are tackled through a series of techniques & exercises inspired from different movement / dance / performance disciplines. As opposed to proposing   repetitive memorized fitness exercises, but rather improvised movement exercises. Unexpected ways of moving constantly engage and refresh both mind and body, as well as generate new pathways of thought and performance. Leaving them with playful and energizing exercises that they can integrate into their workday.

key skills required

  • Experienced in contemporary technique, movement, theatre, & expression.
  • Sensitive and vulnerable artists who are not bound to any rules that obstruct physical movement, are able to duo, and feel the need to experiment as team.
  • Highly committed, strong, and physically well fit.
