Shared Levitation
16.1. – 18.1. 2020 with Marion Sparber & Alan Fuentes-Guerra

With the help of exercises in different constellations, (duos, trios, small groups and the whole group) we will play with movement, Partnering principles and adapt every time to a new partner and universe – we listen, follow and direct the movement as one functioning organism through space. This workshop is a three day intensive intensive for experienced movers.

Our goal is to be awake and present, as well as engage with our whole body, connect to ourselves, the space, the partner and to all the partners inside the space. Throughout the sessions we will build trust and awareness as well as technique and strength which give us a better understanding of dancing in a couple.
We get ready to jump, cross, push, pull, avoid, embrace and suspend each other. In the Shared Levitation class we like to focus on an organic way of Partnering, based on action/reaction principles inspired by Contact Improvisation, fighting styles as well as social dances such as Salsa and Tango.

The access to the movement from a perspective of a deeper connection is our goal. That is why we try to avoid the superficial habit of copying shapes without understanding the realness of the movement. Instead we motivate every couple to find a unique way of communicating with the other dancers and look for individual solutions and variations of the choreographical material which we will teach at the end of every class.

This extracts of our choreography „Porzellan-Haus“ will be different ones from the Goa-mainworkshop and every part has a different focus in the movement and intention.

Each couple will be coached by us in the technical excecution of the material as well as the creative part, changing the set material into their own, new version.

This workshop is thought to help experienced dancers in their process as movers as well as in the creation of Partnering-choreography. It aims to inspire to use dancing with a Partner as a tool for communication.
