A workshop with MILAN HERICH
Without Distance Platform 2019
Milan Herich leads a very physical and playful technique class that challenges the individual and coordinates the collective group. Through repetition, we will build the skills and awareness to move with speed and efficiency. The aim is to alternate between arches and spirals of the body in all directions possibly imagined. The class will start with exercises in which we will work on using the range of the body to discover different movement possibilities, developing into sequences based on the exercises. A full body warm up will begin on the floor and continue through sitting and squatting material. We will then continue by walking, running and spiraling, as well as phrases that focus on moving you across, around and in and out of the floor.
The workshop is addressing professional dancers and choreographers.
