About the workshops |
The lived body / Performative skills
The aim of this workshop is to provide tools to the dancer/creator to excavate different performance qualities that can be used as an integral part of the creative process, as new means of 'cleaning' choreography, as well as a dramaturgic lens that provide a precise meaning to the performance. We will learn a small section from Ella's repertoire and use it as a fertile ground for experiments and revelation of mindful presence in performance.
