Flying Low focuses on our relationship with the floor. We will dissolve the hard floor into a lush swimming pool diving in and out of the floor efficiently with speed without forgetting any part of our body.
Passing Through, an improvisation technique working with the philosophy that movement needs no leader in creation. We will begin with the basic principles of walking, running, pausa, looping and spiralling. Specifically working with instant adaptation and transformation while playing with expansion and cohesion. We will be soft, wild and powerfully spontaneous.
