Korte omschrijving (Engels)
The focus of our practice is physicality. We flow in and out of contact, viewing the dance as a playful dialogue which breathes freely as it develops. We work both technically – concentrating on building up a functional understanding of underlying physical principles and structures of contact improvisation- and experientially – widening the trust to instincts, impulses and intuition.
The principal themes behind our work are organic, fluid and functional movement.  The sessions develop slowly from inside to out, ending towards more technical material. We often start with individual floor-work, offering particular principles and tasks, and then gradually build up to standing using the natural spirals of the body. Material alternates between contact and solo tasks, and also exercises that connect the group as a whole.
Within specific exercises we explore tools that are helpful to work in contact such as; sharing weight, center-to-center, leaning and supporting, rolling point of contact. Also using ideas around momentum, suspension, inertia & falling. We will find effortless ways into weight transfers and lifting. Technique and Poetry. Structure and Freedom. Playful Beings in Motion.
