SHAPE SHIFTING
The objective of the workshop is to explore alternative shapes and movements combining different techniques to develop a vocabulary rich in dynamics and reach the body’s boundaries in terms of speed and stamina. We want to work in a way so the body gets stronger but also finds its way to heal itself. The workshop will have a choreographic nature and guide you to create and co-create your own productions collectively with other artists participants.
