"Flow Force applied to Contact Impro"
Workshop Contact Impro

With Flow Force we are going to train the availability to relate to our liquids, with our bones, with our fascias, with gravity and with all the tensors that cross us in order to dance with them, using them and/or recycling them in favor of movement (body , mind and energy). We will explore the principles of adaptability: the intelligence and efficiency of the body to  relate and flow, welcoming change. We will accept MOVEMENT AS RELATIONSHIP, that is, not only move with ourselves, but also
let us move by, since the potential is born from the fluidity between moving and being moved.


We will study the OPPOSITES, merging them and observing how dynamic power is born in that swing. The ability to recycle forces. We will work with somatic practice tools, addressing concepts of biotensegrity, movement anatomy and internal martial arts, to address movement from a strong, soft and open body.

Flow Force is the intelligence of movement hidden in your body... Listening to it is empowering it... Open doors, connect channels to move and let us move, experience the laws of dynamics that affect your bones, your liquids, your instincts... and live with them... and dance with them...

Jonathan Martineau

Thinking is an art of giving birth. Dancing is an art of being born. If reality is something more than a word, it must be investigated in a moving body. If our ideas have to do with the world, they must develop in dialogue with gravity. Dance as an art of liberation.


This workshop is made up of psychosomatic experiments focused on transforming our conception of the space we are and the space we share. Inspired by butoh dance and nativity thinking, the workshop's experiments explore the possibility of understanding this shared space in its nascent and emerging state.

 

We work from the common spaces of breathing, gravity, physical sensations and imagination. In this way, we enhance sensitivity (the ability to capture sensations, that is, signals from space and the subconscious) and resonance (the ability to resonate and relate freely, spontaneously and innocently) to reach a vitalized space where the flavor of existence is enhances.

 

The workshop does not distinguish between theory and practice and proposes an investigation in movement destined to enjoy a dance of origin. It is accessible to all bodies, enjoyable for all minds.

"Danshumance"
Acrobatic Dance Workshop

This workshop is based on learning movement techniques from acrobatic disciplines (gymnastics, breaking and capoeira) and contemporary dance to expand the motor possibilities of our body, improve our body control and enrich the quality of our movements.

 

Through exploration with balance, sliding, jumping, turning and contact with the ground, we will learn to combine acrobatic movement with an organic and fluid dance adapted to our physical possibilities.

 

It includes the learning of aids and assistances between participants to carry out certain complex movements.

dance, physical theater and clown.

We will discover the relationship between space, body and creation.

We will study the materials, colors and natural elements that surround us and use them as creative tools. Listening will be the starting point to place the body in a place of availability, working in groups, duets and individually. We will rely on clown techniques to travel through the game and pleasure towards the most authentic ofusmism@s. We will become aware of the rhythm, intensity and energy necessary to sustain a scenic body.
