WS6 PERFORMING INSTANT COMPOSITION

The workshop focuses on choreographic awareness and composition skills. Through the practice of different scores, the workshop will encourage the participants to create and perform dance at the same time. Instant composition as a way of performance, allows a score to be solved each time in a new way. Therefore, it demands for dancers to be available to respond and react in the moment. In order to improve this availability, we will work on presence, awareness and listening. A guided warm-up will first let us connect to the body, access to different movement qualities and gradually expand the awareness to the space and to other players. We will focus on fundamental movement principles such as the sense of weight, grounding and joints articulation. This technical practice will provide us with physical movement materials to play with along the compositional structures.
