Movementality ? tell me more…
Moving is part of life, yet we know very little about how the way we move expresses as much as our verbal language. In these labs, we will learn the body’s language and how to use it to communicate. We will also learn the art of corporeal improvisation where we let the impulses within move us and use physical theatre techniques to convey it to others.
Presence is a fundamental key which is the delicate space where creation is born and the ability to go beyond oneself is possible.
