Eldad Ben Sasson

About the Workshop |

The class will focus on the connection between creativity and imagination in the dancer's work. It is based upon my experience with Ohad Naharin's method and many other ideas, concepts, exercises from my education, personal life and career and philosophy as well.‎

We will work with analytical thought and physical feelings in different situations, as experienced by the body. The aim is to enrich and improve the intuitive experience of the dancer, using the body's memory in creating a movement that leaves "new" traces of memories in space, and practicing how to identify them and how to relate to them.
