Movement workshop: Responsive Body is meant for those who are willing to study movement principles individually and together with partner and have a playful physical challenge. Previous dance or martial arts experience is not necessary. Each participant can begin from their own bodily experience. The most important is the wish to try and face a challenge.
The workshop begins with simple movement on the floor to concentrate on the functional relationships of movements. This quiet start allows us to tune in, to notice relations and to prepare ourselves for more complex tasks. We will then rise our heartbeat to continue with energetic tasks offering a technical challenge. The aim is to find freedom in movement, based on functional anatomy. From there we will work with different principles like pushing, pulling and release. The aim is to reveal the basis of an interesting and complex partnership. The participants are directed to use these principles through listening each other playfully.
The workshop is led by internationally active choreographers-dancers Külli Roosna (EST) and Kenneth Flak (EST/NOR) who have been working together since 2008. Their new performance ‘Prime mover‘ performed at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava on November 16. and 17.
