WS12 Im//passe – Beyond boundaries in collective improvisation
Whether for newcomers or for experienced movers, the workshop will provide tools to explore ideas of physical and sensory connection between bodies as moving in collective. What are the real boundaries that separate you from a collective body? The class is designed on task-oriented actions, using strings as support for improvisation, weaving between individuality and collectivity, exploring gaps and limits in space, touch (or lack of it), and speed and dynamics of movements. We tend to follow the same rhythms by accepting routines and patterns, therefore, blocking possible encounters. We create an impasse by submitting to pre-existing boundaries, allowing an invisible space to stand between us. Let’s move beyond the deadlock!
