CHRISTIAN LEVEQUE _ Zeitgenössisch
21. September 2020 - 25. September 2020
In his class, Christian leads the participants towards a group connection through the use of guided improvisation. The class provides tools for body awareness in the space and trust towards the other individuals in the studio, which strategically builds a safe environment where everybody is welcomed to be challenged. There is a special attention given to improvisation as a means for imagery, leading the single dancer to discover a fluid movement quality through principles like “expansion” and “contraction” of the body. Once this quality as been discovered, the class will offer complementary exercises on and off the floor for a better understanding of the physicality being proposed. The class will vary everyday to guarantee no attachment.
