About the course
This course will introduce various tools and resources at a creative level, helping to stimulate our creative and expressive capacities through the body and the movement. We will discover our body possibilities to develop it’s own body/physical vocabulary and to give shape and expression to sensations, images, memories, shape, space, etc.
We will go through a warm up that will prepare us physically and sensorial and will bring us to a state of alertness and receptivity to then go on with various proposals in the form of improvisations and small compositions. We will focus our attention into the relationship between body-movement and space, between body-movement and time, and in textures and movement qualities (energy/weight/ strength), etc.
Students will be stimulated to explore, discover and go into finding their own expression. Throughout the different sessions we will combine individual and partner work, small and whole group exercises and there will be moments to observe and to share the lived experiences.
