The Instrument composition classes offer a tactile and musing practice, articulating the body with time, space
and the imagination. The classes engage with composition in real time, encouraging flow, precision and bodily wisdom
as a pathway to dance making and performance. Involving attentiveness, musicality, collective and personal awareness;
the work deepens a sense of presence, choice and vision, and highlights the interplay between movement and image.
Joining these elements in the process of dance making, the practice takes its fascination in relationships between
human beings, environments and choreographic narratives.
In workshops, we extend these elements and deepen the study within three main themes:
- which places a focus on the relationship between rhythm, sound and
harmony and the moving / dancing body.
- in which we study space through the kinesthetic and
conscious abilities of the moving body and mind, as an integrated subject in choreography and performance.
Dance Composition and Aliveness
-in which we investigate the depth of our (theatrical) presence, attentiveness and
hunger for imagination as performance makers.
