Lucía Toker

About the Workshop |

We begin by building a sensitive body from consciousness and connection exercises.

We actively observe our body parts, their relationships, our posture, balance, and begin to immerse ourselves in the tissue as the functional connector of our system and to test its connectivity and availability.

We will activate from varied exercises that will make us work with the eccentric tension of the muscular chains, the joint mobility, proprioception, quality of weight shifting and the connection with natural patterns of movement that will be the base of all the technical work to be developed.

We go through all the height levels; standing, squatting, “4 legs” and lying down working each position and their transitions as a dynamic situation putting their functionality at stake.

Ever-wider and more complex movement situations are developed such as floorwork, locomotion, soft acrobatics, dance and partner works. The analysis of the patterns and mechanics of movement, progressions and deconstruction of tricks are always present as the basis and support of this practice.

Through all this process and with the tools that are being deployed we immerse ourselves in the world of exploration and movement research so that each one can integrate, personalize and transform the material.

The technique at the service of freedom and creation.
