Action dance workshop with Sandra Kramerova is geared towards exploration of technicality, dynamic modalities and aesthetics of athleticism. Participants investigate explosive potential of movement, tap their imagination through action based improvisations and transform everyday material into choreography. The focus is on energy flow, impulse driven functional motion, risk taking, contact, creative decision making, expressivity and artistry.

Workshop | Anatomy, Movement, Improvisation | Marlieke Burghouts

Sunday 15 November | 14:00-17:00 | €25,-

In this workshop we will explore animalistic and dynamic movement quality by deliberately using the connections of the muscled and joints in the body. This exploration aims towards articulated, yet organic flow of movements that, through the process, become instinctive.

This research aims to look at the body as a whole and connected by looking into the relations of the different joints and the muscles that activate them. Building up the alignment in the body by connecting different points in the body. We will be going into the artistic research with an anatomical basis.

Registration and payment
Please register by mail before 8th of November to cloud.danslab@gmail.com

Payment details will be provided and registration confirmed when payment received.
The costs of the workshop are €25,-
